    Delta cancelling some Tuesday and Wednesday flights

    Delta has cancelled some of their Tuesday and Wednesday flights to Aruba for September, October, and into the first week of November.

    I was scheduled to arrive on Tuesday, Nov 3rd which was cancelled last Monday. I had intended to extend my trip anyway so made a call to Delta this past Wednesday and am now flying in on Friday, October 30 and staying for 3 weeks. Got hubby's flight booked as well - he is flying down after me and then we both fly back together.

    Delta was great in changing my flight dates and there was no change fee (obviously, since it was a cancellation on their part) and I did not have to pay the fare difference even though the Friday flight was more expensive.

    TWO BIG THUMBS UP TO DELTA!!

    Yes, I discovered almost too late that I really have to pay attention to my emails. It's not all fluff and advertising. One week before my vacation, I belatedly opened up an email and discovered that my flight was rescheduled from Wednesday to Thursday, cutting my pre-paid resort holiday short one day.
    So I looked at www.flights.google.com. I saw that neither Delta nor United have Wednesday flights! What a nightmare this virus response has wrought! Luckily, I found a Wednesday flight on American Airlines. I do have to fly through Charlotte, but otherwise it seems okay. It's been years since I've flown American Airlines. So long that my FF number had been changed without notice, and I used to be an elite gold ruby level flyer under AAdvantage.

    After booking American Airlines, I called Delta. As elite Silver, I got a real nice Guest Relations rep after only a ten-minute callback wait. Delta quickly cancelled my RT ticket, booked me a OW for coming back (as I wanted to keep my same flight coming back as it's not on a Wednesday) and gave me a credit for the difference. As I love to fly, I'll probably use my Delta credit in October for Cancun, and take in CocoBongo, which is open.

    So, I'll have a chance to compare the American Airlines flight against the Delta Airlines flight, in-the-air quality-experience-wise.

    I just flew Delta over the last week on a domestic flight and their safety precautions in-flight and in the Sky Club were spot on! Some amenities are scaled back - First Class and Comfort only get wine and beer served now and you no longer receive a hot plated meal. But we had enough to eat in the Sky Club to cover us for a long flight.

    I have said before Covid since we travel alot and always had multiple flights in our queue - always, always, always check your flights regularly.

    We are flying to and from Aruba on a Wednesday in October. Our return flight was originally scheduled for Tuesday. Fortunately we had enough points to cover our extra night at LaCabana.
