Update: Appears the site is back up. Anyone get a free direct booked ticket while it was down?
Delta’s website is currently down. This not only tells me that Delta’s website is temporarily broken, but some could argue that was already the case with their award booking engine. Instead, it tells me that for a limited time, you may be able to book over the phone and save on direct ticketing fees. So if you were looking to book that complex award and avoid the $25 direct ticketing fee, now may be the time.
Delta’s Website In Maintenance
A MISSED CONNECTION
We are currently experiencing problems on delta.com and our mobile applications.
Customers who need to check-in for flights may use self-service kiosks at the airport or see an agent. For those customers who need to book or manage an existing trip, please call Delta Reservations at 1-800-221-1212.
We apologize for any inconvenience.
I haven’t confirmed if they are offering fee free direct ticketing, but it is worth a try if you were concerned about those fees.
