I’m not happy

Delta made an equipment change so my seat was down graded from economy plus to economy. I was wait listed for one of three available first class seats using my regional pass and Platium status awhile ago. My origami flight was booked lax to Westchester in economy plus, when my ticket was changed lax-jfk the agent apparently booked me in economy and did an automatic upgrade due to my status to economy plus. So Delta feels this down grade is ok! As my choice airlines and platinum member I thought there would be a possibility of just upgrading me from the waiting list to a first class seat which is available since the economy plus seats are full. Why spend 100,00+ on my Delta card if there is no consideration in maintaining my booked seat. I’m upset and disappointed in the change that was made due to your equipment change. When there are options to help out a customer maybe Delta revenue should not be it’s only priority. During COVID you did not want to refund my dollars on flight I was not able to take but offered credit which I’m still holding. I’m simply disappointed that now that I’m back flying my experience has been negative and disappointing.

Some good, some not

Overall a decent app. The connection to wifi is a bit confusing and unintuitive. Feels like u accidentally find ur way every time depending on the plane and flight. Second, the contact us section is a. It if a disaster. One link leads u to text which creates undeliverable text. Crappy experience. Their mileage calculations are impossible to figure out. The app designers don’t know how to convey it so they describe things generally. The mileage wonks have created so many hidden levers to devalue ur ability to earn and spend. We’d to reduce the levers, complexities. And stop devaluing the members mileage. Last there should be an easy way to search for trips using dollars or miles from a airport with no specific destination but only based on price. Opinion is / remains it’s cute and useful for quick use but for deep searches it is not robust. Corners have been cut for the sake of an MVP product but needs to improve if they want to people to really use it. Searches need to offer and locate best deals using miles or dollars from single destination. Search results need better and more information sortable. Improve and add ways to spend mikes that don’t feel simply like an accommodation add-on. Rental cars and hotels are prices horribly stop devaluing miles so quickly. The credit card spend to achieve loyalty is pretty stupendous. Seems Delta would want more in the loyalty programs as it means return customers.

Review of Delta App

My original flight 3/9 was canceled from JAX to RIC via LGA and Delta rescheduled me on another flight via JFK. Then my departure from JAX to JFK was delayed so much so that my arrival into RIC was being further pushed back. I was given the option to change my flight at no cost which I opted to do but I was not able to see what seats were available. I thought at some point I would be given the option to see available seats prior to finalizing the change but that never occurred. After accepting the change I found I didn’t have a seat assignment on the departure and I was assigned a middle seat (which I despise) on the connection. A passenger should be given the option to see what seats are available before making a change. I can assure you had I known prior to accepting the change that I would have to wait to be assigned a seat at the airport and that I would only have a middle seat on the connection I would not have changed from the rescheduled flight. Then to add insult to injury I used points to sit in Delta comfort from JAX to LGA because of the length of the flight. I no longer want to use points on either leg of the flights via ATL and I sincerely hope my points will be deposited back into my account. I had aisle seats (which I prefer) on both my original flights and I’m very disappointed I don’t have them on either flight tomorrow. I apologize for such a lengthy message; I didn’t expect to have to deal with flight changes that would disrupt my trip.

Flight changed

We have had our flights to and from our destination twice with one time changing airports on us. Since we used mileage, a free certificates and gift certificates 4months before our trip we call customer service to help us book. Our experience at that time was excellent. We were accompanied for all of our requests including booking our seats. Two months later our flight times were changed which resulted in loosing our assigned seats and not being able to add seats without paying extra for 2 people for a total of 6 flights. That said we were given the run around by CS that they could not do anything until we checked in. So come to find out we could not request any change in seats until we were at the gate. We are of retirement age and my husband is disabled so it is best for us to sit together. The last change was not only the time change but airport change. After calling CS 5 times 2 days prior to our return to let them know the airport change was inappropriate I was told someone would get back to me multiple times however no one ever called me back. CS did say it was Deltas mistake and they would get back to us. No one got back to us however we received an email the morning of check in showing our original airport. Now we will have to try to again get seats together for our 2 legs of our return trip at the gate. The hassle and anxiety of our first trip since COVID-19 has not been enjoyable. Shame on you Delta!

Disappointed

I am extremely disappointed with Delta. In an effort to appease customers with a Delta canceled flight Delta packed my flight to 100% capacity. At what point do you decide that customers expecting you to honor your policy that you voluntarily set in place deserve to not receive the benefits of that policy? Customer service is very poor. I called to speak with a representative and the message I received said I would speak with a representative in 58 minutes. Over 90 minutes and I am still on hold. I chose to stay on hold because the last time I chose for a representative to call me back in an allotted time I received a text 2 hours after the allotted time asking if I still needed assistance. I attempted to use the text message option in the Delta app and I was repeatedly sent the same information that I already had access to on the app. Also when I attempted to book a flight with the app the price of the specific flight I chose tripled in the less than 1 minute it took to click the required responses. The app often has the message that it is offline or can’t process my request. In speaking with other members of my family they have had the same experience with the app not being able to process. I have been a loyal customer to Delta since I began flying when my daughter’s family moved half way across the country. I would love to continue to use Delta. Please consider all the contents of this message. Thank you.

Change of flight times

After several lights changes since the time I originally booked, my international layover went from 1 hour and 45 minutes to only 40 minutes. A 45 minute layover for an international connection is not enough time, especially as I am flying with a family of five, this forced asked to switch flights. In doing so, I lost the upgraded seats I initially used points for. This would not have been a big deal, but it is highly disappointing that delta would not reimburse you for the points lost due to a change on their end. This policy really needs changed. In addition, the four hour plus waiting to talk to a representative force me to try to utilize the chat function. Even though I know I was able to speak to somebody relatively quickly, I made it all the way to having new flights but the person I was talking to left the chat. Waited a while and then the screen turned out causing me to start over. OK I thought, disappointing but just a fluke, but what do you know it happened again. The second time, I am mediately typed “representative“ and then we can immediately going through the process with a third agent. At least this time all the previous chat information was still up for her to review instead of starting back from scratch. The system need some bugs worked out, it’s also very hard to read on an iPhone.

I LOVE DELTA

I am loyal to very few large companies on this planet. My loyalty often winds up local whenever possible. However, with Delta, I feel as proud to be a loyalist as I do with a local business. They treat me right. When you earn status, IT MEANS SOMETHING! I capitalize that because with another major airline, my status I earned that was similar when I lived elsewhere and flew them a lot did nothing for me in comparison. I could go on and on about why I love Delta, but I’ll just end with the fact that they really try. They’ve improved. They’re staff is overwhelmingly good, and for a huge business like this, that is not easy. I’m a Delta loyalist for the rest of my days. The app works seamlessly by the way. I am supposed to mention that huh? Truly perfect app that will tell me right when my bags are loaded on the plane, at baggage claim, the whole 9’yards. Thanks Delta for being a good company. I hope this review makes someone happy, because I run a business and can’t even express the amount of people in your employ that have impressed and delighted me in my travels. Cheers! Flying you tomorrow!

Latest app version update is a fail

The latest update to the “today” tab is the opposite of an upgrade. It is now much more difficult to navigate. The ability to scroll through boarding pass segments has been great and very easy in prior versions. That has been replaced with several clicks needed for the same functionality that used to be a simple swipe. The boarding time and departure time do not show at the same time, instead it may show boarding time when you open the app the first time and departure time the next. Would be better if it could show both times. There also seems to be a bug in the version that causes the user to be logged out. Yesterday I was logged out while in line to drop my bag after opening the app, then again at security, again at the SkyClub, and again at boarding. What a pain to log back in each time (while wearing a mask). As a very loyal and frequent Delta customer, I want to love the app again. It has been great for quite some time now, but the early November 2021 update is a fail for me. Feels rushed and as if no customer feedback was requested. Hoping the upgrade is on the back end with functionality, but from the user standpoint this version needs some work. I’d love to give feedback from a user standpoint, please feel free to contact me.

Many missing options

One of the many missing options is the opportunity to volunteer when a flight is overbooked. I just checked in for an overbooked flight and was never directed to the volunteer screen. If I had used the airport kiosk, I could have volunteered. True, volunteering does not guarantee being chosen, but at least I would have had the opportunity to try. I’ve had this same problem when the app has automatically checked me in and never allowed me the option of volunteering for overbooked flights. I am seriously considering deleting this app. Today: After neither the app nor the website would not let me volunteer, I checked in for this morning’s flight at the airport kiosk and easily accessed the volunteer screen. Unfortunately, I figured that I did not need the paper boarding pass because it would be on my phone. This app made me check in again to view the boarding passes and, once again, did not provide the volunteer screen. Fortunately, the gate agent was extremely helpful and added my name to the list at the price I wanted. The big problem is that if two people volunteer at the same price, one of the deciding factors is who volunteered first. It would be wonderful if the app let me volunteer when I check in 24 hours in advance then let me check the status whenever I want to see if the list has begun and add my name — if there was no list yet at check in.

Ruined my luggage!

Delta has been exceptional in every way, well, except for 1 small thing .... when I got my luggage, upon arrival, my back was soaking wet. I had people waiting outside so I had to hurry. I figured if anything was really wrong with my things that I’d contact Delta & they’d handle it. Even the bad airlines will, at the very least, give you something for the loss or damage of your property that occurred while in they’re possession. Delta wants me to pay $30 just to file a claim with no guarantee of replacement or reimbursement. You’ve already set me back being I had to replace most of the clothes, gifts, & personal items that I brought & had to replace. So sad because other than that I’ve enjoyed Delta. I’m not a man of means, I’m a carpenter, so I don’t make the kind of money where I can just get new stuff & move on. Spending the money I had to, to replace all the missing & damaged stuff, left me with just enough to get home. I wish i wasn’t writing this because, like I said, I was happy in all other ways with Delta. It’s likely it won’t ever happen again if I stayed using Delta but I literally can’t afford a $1,000 + gamble, especially when there’s zero accountability from Delta when it comes to your property. Sorry.

Delta’s App Failed Us

Our flight was cancelled in advance but we were not notified. The App showed it “On-time” at several check ins on our trip from home to the airport. We left home at 12:40 and checked the flight status on the drive to parking, on the shuttle to the terminal, in the security line and after we got through security. At every instance the app was properly refreshed and re-loaded and we were told the flight was on time. It turns out the flight was cancelled at 12:47 shortly after we left home. Delta sent an email but did not send any in-app or text notifications. Their app also failed to show the cancellation at every stage. It’s sad that Delta is considered a good airline because it would be so simple to have their app display correct information. No compensation was offered and our flight was rebooked to today, which also got cancelled at the gate. Delta has so courtesy rebooked us on a one way flight to New York. Too bad our flight was to Tampa. Customer Service has been on hold for 3 hours. It started at 82 minutes and 3 hours later the hole is still 80 minutes. I wish I had some good feedback and know this happens to many others but a simple notification could have saved a lot of frustration. Fingers crossed we can go on our vacation and salvage the rest of the week after 2 days lost.

Absolutely horrible.. currently waiting nearly 24 hours after delta cancelled flight

Absolutely horrible experience. Not with the app but with Delta as a whole. We flew from MSP to SEA and landed around noon with a connecting flight to Hawaii at 3:45pm. The flight kept getting delayed an hour at a time until around 8 they announced that we could start boarding. Everyone was on the plane and ready to go when around 9, the caption announced that due to weather, and an employee running over the fuel hose, that the flight was going to be cancelled… he told us that there was a booth that would be assisting everyone with finding hotels and rebooking flights. Well, we stood in line for over an hour when they announced that they were closing the help booth at 11pm. Mind you, half of the people on the flight were still in line and not offered any assistance in the slightest. We were just left on our own to find our own sleeping accommodations. They also announced that the help booth would reopen at 4am. The employees at the help desk didn’t show up until 4:15 and 4:20am, and it is currently 6am and we are barely half way through the line. This is absolutely ridiculous and after this horrible experience, I will never fly delta again if they do not make this right. I will post updates when we get through this madness..

Poor design

Version 5.1 has a terrible color scheme. On one hand, the home screen has a new darker high contrast purple background, but the bottom half of the window as well as all the other window tabs are blaring white and low contrast! Does delta not have the resources to hire a graphics designer? Then, when starting the booking process, the sort function opens a picker control that has all the options (price, duration, etc) rendered in white on white, making it practically impossible to see the choices. Finally, if using the sort function, it actually executed a new query on the server for every option, which is mind numbing slow! Why could you not just re-sort the existing shown flights on the client side!!! Likewise, switching between prices shown in cash, Miles or miles+cash, also executes a new server query. This is sloppy work! You should run just one query that downloads a compete set of information, this will speed up the client app’s performance exponentially! The website is much better, not to mention feature full. I understand that Delta is not a software company, and so it may not have the in-house expertise of one, but these design problems are too egregious to go unnoticed! With millions of active daily users, including your own staff, how could all this have slipped by! Are your testers actually even using the app? If not, they should be.

The User Interface Needs Work

I've used the app for two trips at this point and want to like it, but I really struggled with it in moments that are simply inexcusable. On the first trip the feature that switches between flights/boarding passes was completely nonobvious to me. Eventually I stumbled onto the drop down menu (which was docked at the top of the boarding pass view), but it took awhile. On my second trip the boarding pass view presented me with a warning regarding a flight delay and I couldn't get the flight drop down menu to work at all. The boarding pass view defaulted to showing me my second flight's boarding pass rather than the first (???) and there was nothing I could do about it. I managed to get through security without a boarding pass and got a paper pass printed at the gate. Later I noticed the delay warning on the boarding pass screen actually had a tiny 'x' in the top corner which was nearly invisible. When I tapped it the flight delay warning went away and the flight drop down menu suddenly started working. Once again, it was completely nonobvious to me what the problem was. It's really disappointing to experience such trouble over tiny things that can be so easily avoided. Better design/testing is needed.

Missing Dark Mode and Slide Over

The new UI incorporates a lot more bright white screens. That is super jarring for any user running dark mode in iOS 13. Please allow for the UI to change dynamically between light and dark to match the system state. The app should also take advantage of the new slide over/split screen functionality on the iPad. The app is currently to spread out and hard to use on the larger iPad Pros, but with slide one it would look just like the iPhone version! That would be so nice to have because then the app would be much more useful when having to have safari, calendar, email, etc. open at the same time. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a very loyal Diamond Medallion and the Delta app is considerably better than other airlines - but as the app gets better and I use it more, these other features matter even more to me. Especially because the Delta website is considerably worse than the app when it comes to mobile interaction and information consumption.

Insurance Integration NEEDS IMPROVEMENT

I being the smart, responsible, fully self-aware individual I am pre-purchased flight insurance (I always will because I know me). However, the insane run around I’m receiving right now is out of this world. (Great thing I find runs relaxing.) It would be a great stride in your overall end user experience if insurance claims could be integrated into the app. Let’s be honest, with programming being where it is these days this is completely possible. I’ve already designed the flow in my mind and would be happy to have a chat with you on how to roll this out or I can leave this as a gift to you to do with it what you will. For right now: 1) I’ve been given the wrong information by the third party (2) customer service phone attendant and only now after (3) several calls have been informed after I leveraged my temper to inspire the lazy attendant to get out of autopilot and double check her information (4) that the insurance company isn’t open until Monday. What is this? 1950? I don’t even need to speak to an agent if I have a car wreck and this is by far less dramatic well until I left my review but now this is officially a situation. Fix it in Jesus name!

Paid twice for flight

On top of wait times being astronomical to ever speak to any representative and get any help, having made a change to our flight months in advance the app was confused/ whoever originally helped me change the flight messed things up. I showed up the day my flight was scheduled for (originally scheduled for the day prior - but rescheduled months in advanced for the day after - after they changed our flight time with no notice other than an email I spoke to a representative who got us on a flight for a different time. The app confirmed this change was made and consistently told me the change was made, upon arriving at the airport it was chaos in their check bag line while for 20 min they only had one woman checking bags and about 50 people waiting in line. I finally made my way to check my bag and was told my flight was the day prior, I asked the woman checking my bag multiple times to look at the app that my flight was no doubt scheduled for the current day and she continued to not acknowledge this and just told me I could purchase tickets for a new flight on the spot. 300$ later and I got to get on a flight that I had already paid for as she continued to refuse to acknowledge the FACT that my flight was scheduled on the app for the day I arrived. Bogus, malarkey - I am infuriated

Disappointed

Dear Delta Customer Service, You really let me down today. I booked a flight using the Delta App and when I went to pay, it did not give me my flight confirmation details to confirm the flight was accurate. When I got the email confirmation, it was for the wrong day. When I went back to change the flight (I called your customer support line IMMEDIATELY), the customer service representative charged me an additional 11,000 points to change the flight - and it was just booked moments ago. The representative told me the price was higher based on demand. I was online at the same time, trying to see this mysterious cost increase as there were dozens of flights at the same exact cost! And the same flight he booked me on, there was NO additional costs associated with my flight. I basically got completely ripped off by the app and your customer support representative. To top it all off, I decided to use my points because my flight was last minute to attend and conduct my brothers memorial service. In the future, I will fly Alaska Airlines. They treat their customers better. I’m so very disappointed in Delta. It’s a shame because Delta was always the beat airlines. Now, it feels more like American Airlines... and they are just horrible.

Delta screwed me and now won’t assist with compensation

I’m sorry, but I have nowhere else to vent because customer service is unreachable with this airline that doesn’t care at all about their customers. I had a scheduled flight home from an airport, through delta, when the news comes in that there are multiple delays. Of course, delta refused to tell me what was going on, until beyond midnight when the flight was canceled. It was at this point that we were informed that the flight to the same area the night before was canceled, because of a issue with the lavatory, and it was not fixed by the time the rescheduled flight was scheduled, so they gave the other flight our plane, and attempted to fix the issue within the other plane. The fix they had in mind failed, and they knew hours before that the plane would never leave the ground. They waited until the doors were locked in the airport, circumventing the responsibility to book hotels. We were forced to sleep in the airport, which was truly miserable, and were able to fly a different airline the next day. I am now contacting them to receive a full refund, but it is nearly impossible to reach the department I need. There is no way in the world we will ever fly with this horrifying mess of an airline again.

Delta Stinks

My daughter and her 3 year old and 8 month old sons just flew Delta from HELENA MT to ATLANTA GA. Her flight left Helena and was was rerouted to IDAHO FALLS ID due to engine problems. No problem there- this happens. The problem was once there my daughter’s seats were given to another passenger- again this happens but her luggage, including her car seats were on the plane she was supposed to be on. I would have driven from MT to ID to pick them up but without car seats it was impossible. My daughter tried to tell two attendants she was supposed to be on that flight and they rudely told her she was wrong. Later they saw that she was in fact supposed to be on the flight that left without her. She was stranded in the airport with two little ones for HOURS before being bused, with rental car seats, to SALT LAKE CITY where she was put up in a hotel for a couple hours before her early flight to ATLANTA. Her reason for flying to ATLANTA was for her grandmother’s funeral which she missed and just barely made the graveside service. I will NEVER fly Delta again and will tell EVERYONE I known to do the same. This isn’t the first time we’ve had problems with Delta but this will surely be the last!! How in the world do you not check the log and why was her luggage and car seats on the flight without her. Sounds like a big security breech to me! Delta stinks!!!!
