Delta is at it again with their devaluations to their Same Day Confirm program. The latest change has to do with switching from a connecting flight to a non-stop flight. Per the new rules, Delta’s Same Day Confirmed (SDC) policy will no longer permit changes from a connecting flight to a nonstop flight.
Let’s saying you were booked to fly from Los Angeles-Atlanta-New Orleans, and wanted to Same Day Confirm onto the non-stop Los Angeles- New Orleans flight, you would no longer be able to.
However, currently you can still switch on a non-stop flight to a connecting flight through Same Day Confirm as long as the same class of service is available plus if it follows the routing rules in the ticket.
I think this is a HUGE negative change to Delta’s Same Day Confirmed options and one they have just tried to slide by under the table. Delta already devalued their Same Day Confirm program last year requiring the same class of service to be available meaning that most passengers are unable to use Same Day Confirm and instead have to use the Same Day Standby option.
What are your thoughts on this latest change from Delta?
