Seems Delta is pricing some tickets out much much cheaper than they should be.

I am seeing ORD-LAX around $85 for this weekend. Didn't try to book though but did book other tickets and went though and got confirmation number.

Post by: Moshe123 on December 26, 2013, 12:54:21 PM
Serious question:
Does anyone think that Delta won't let cancel after 24 hours or so? They are losing tons of money on each ticket. $18 before taxes.
I booked for Shabbos Mishpatim to Montreal with the entire family, but there is a chance (somewhat of chance) that my Ruv (Belz) will still be here if he comes.
I'll have to decide by tomorrow if to keep my reservation.

Searched with skiplagged.com which sends you to Delta for the booking. Picked up 4 tix JFK-HNL from 8/24-8/28 in coach for <$90 each, got the emails with confirmation and ticket numbers. I don't think it works through skiplagged or delta anymore though. I would have done first, but there was no way to do that directly on skiplagged, and trying to switch once it sent me to delta resulted in price jumps for all classes.

Does anyone know if you can cancel some of the tickets but not all on an itinerary? I may want to drop the tickets for the kids only before 24 hours is up.

To those kicking themselves for not searching business class, I got business on my return flight from LAX but I didn't even search for business class tickets. It just automatically gave it to me. So maybe if you got coach then it means there were no available business class.

JFK-LIH 8/10 $108, card charged and got email.
OGG-JFK 8/18 $85, card charged and got email.
JFK-PHX-JFK 1/29-2/4 $39, no charge and no email yet (already checked spam).

Sweet! Just noticed that I'm mostly in first, with one segment in biz and one in coach.

Looks like the PHX was to late, though.

No e-mail confirmation from Priceline, and I'm getting the same Priceline message when searching for my itinerary:

Sorry - Unable to book your airline tickets

Airline availability and pricing is constantly changing and we were unable to book the flights you requested.
Please select an alternative option from the itineraries below. Prices are per ticket including all taxes and fees.
I got the same thing. Is there anything to do about it?

Dan,

Havent been to hawaii in 11 years.  Is united still the best mileage option for interisland flights.  I see its 5000 miles.  Is there anything cheaper in terms of miles?

Also, I am going with young children and possibly a 2 month old as well.  Which islands should we goto.  I have been to maui and the big island.  I definitely want to take my kids to the big island to see the volcanos.   should i goto kaui or to maui?

It makes sense that it bothers you especially if it was available and you just didn't think of it. It's only if you can't be happy with what you got that you have a problem.

I feel horrible for you. I hope you can work with Orbitz but having dealt with them over a really stupid issue over a long period of time I can say that calling Orbitz for me has been like talking to a brick wall. I was never able to reach an American, they are all in Guatemala or somewhere similar. If I were you I'd figure out some way to reach their U.S. offices, I think they are in Illinois.

Good luck.

Spoke to Orbitz, and they blamed Delta. Spoke to Delta, and they blamed Orbitz. Got Orbitz and Delta on the phone together, and Delta conceded that when they said they were honoring the fares, it was only for reservations that had been ticketed. Orbitz said that they didn't "ticket" my reservation, because the didn't get the necessary confirmation from Delta, which means that Delta wasn't allowing them to ticket the fare as booked.  So if I understand correctly, Delta is telling the world that they're honoring the fares, but in reality, they only meant that they're honoring the fare IF they have actually been ticketed already, and if they could stop anyone before a fare was ticketed, then they would do so.

Question remains whether Delta's actions may be in violation of DOT regulations, if Orbitz confirmed the booking, and then Delta refused to verify the fare and allow Orbitz to issue a ticket number.

In Orbitz initial email they say and I quote "Please note: This is NOT a ticket, and may not be used at check in. Your electronic ticket will arrive shortly in a separate email. You do not need to contact us to confirm your reservation" So as you can see I do not need to call to confirm.....Then the email that canceled the ticket blamed it on availability yet Delta shows plenty of availability......

this makes sense, as there required by law to honer e tickets but not reservations that don't yet have an e ticket.

So under law, they're not required to honor it until it's been ticket. But it's still very disingenuous for Delta to declare that they're honoring these fares, but then stop Orbitz from issuing the tickets.
Title: Re: Delta Price Mistake
Post by: milechazzer on December 26, 2013, 08:45:26 PM
This is from the DOT's frequently asked questions.....

Does the prohibition on post-purchase price increases in section 399.88(a) apply in the situation where a carrier mistakenly offers an airfare due to a computer problem or human error and a consumer purchases the ticket at that fare before the carrier is able to fix the mistake?

Section 399.88(a) states that it is an unfair and deceptive practice for any seller of scheduled air transportation within, to, or from the United States, or of a tour or tour component that includes scheduled air transportation within, to, or from the United States, to increase the price of that air transportation to a consumer after the air transportation has been purchased by the consumer, except in the case of a government-imposed tax or fee and only if the passenger is advised of a possible increase before purchasing a ticket. A purchase occurs when the full amount agreed upon has been paid by the consumer. Therefore, if a consumer purchases a fare and that consumer receives confirmation (such as a confirmation email and/or the purchase appears on their credit card statement or online account summary) of their purchase, then the seller of air transportation cannot increase the price of that air transportation to that consumer, even when the fare is a “mistake.”

A contract of carriage provision that reserves the right to cancel such ticketed purchases or reserves the right to raise the fare cannot legalize the practice described above. The Enforcement Office would consider any contract of carriage provision that attempts to relieve a carrier of the prohibition against post-purchase price increase to be an unfair and deceptive practice in violation of 49 U.S.C. § 41712.

So if you got a charge pending that should be the same rule? No??
Title: Re: Delta Price Mistake
Post by: milechazzer on December 26, 2013, 08:53:58 PM
The actual regulation says "A purchase is deemed to have occurred when the full amount agreed upon has been paid by the consumer."

But the FAQ (above) says "Therefore, if a consumer purchases a fare and that consumer receives confirmation (such as a confirmation email and/or the purchase appears on their credit card statement or online account summary) of their purchase,..."

Based on the FAQ, it would seem that a pending charge and an email confirmation should be more than enough to trigger this. In addition, the regulation seems to apply to any seller of airfare - not just the airlines. So I'm not sure whether Orbitz, Delta or both may be in violation here.

this is the key

(such as a confirmation email and/or the purchase appears on their credit card statement or online account summary)

pending should be good but the full amount and it should be pending from the airlines not orbitz

pending charge from a travel agent is just a hold until the ticket gets issued

Else my options are to cancel by evening tomorrow, and get my $80 back(2 tickets) --  or hold on to them, and somehow do a change with Delta to future days(not sure if this would be possible).
Any thoughts?

Her answer was that the availability was the fare had gone up and there were no more tickets available at that cost.

He is saying that if I booked a ticket under my name and do not end up needing to use it, I should give it to you. In order to use it, you then also purchase a FULLY REFUNDABLE ticket and check in at the airport....and pass through security with your refundable ticket. Then once through security, you will use the ticket I gave you at the gate. Then you cancel the refundable ticket and get a full refund.....

I don't see how this would really work, unless people have done it before and obviously you would need two one way tickets to make it work.

Because on the return you would also need a ticket in your name to get through security (the one you used on the 1st flight has already been canceled/refunded so not valid anymore)

But I guess booking another refundable ticket for the way back should do the trick
Title: Re: Delta Price Mistake

Because you need to cancel the flight within 24 hours of the first leg.

And here's the lovely response that I got from Orbitz. I think it's safe to say they're not overly concerned about this issue.


Thank you for including Orbitz in your travel plans.
 
We are terrible sorry to hear that Orbitz was not able to honor the fare that was offered in our web site. Let me give you an explanation about the situation we experienced today.
 
Delta airlines system had issues and some fares were misfiled, resulting in unreasonably low fares. Unfortunately we were not able to honor the fare since this was not valid and Delta airlines did not allow Orbitz to issue any ticket.
 
We appreciate your business and hope you will give us another opportunity to fully restore your confidence in our products and services.

It's the same story for a lot of people who booked with Priceline or Orbitz (and possibly other websites too). As I understand ..... Priceline or Orbitz offered the fares, accepted payment, created their own confirmation number and created a Delta record locator in conjunction with Delta, and emailed all that info to you. Then, it seems they "dragged their feet" on issuing the tickets until a little later in the day when Delta had caught on and started blocking agents from "ticketing" these mistake fare reservations. When Priceline/Orbitz realized that your reservation hadn't being ticketed and was still sitting in their system "unticketed", they then sent you a ridiculous email implying that your flights weren't available and you should rebook. Now Delta says if your reservation wasn't "ticketed", then your reservation is meaningless as far as Delta is concerned, and you may or may not have a legitimate beef with Priceline or Orbitz for offering you the fare, confirming it, and then cancelling your reservation. I think they're both at fault, since I can't accept that Delta doesn't share responsibility when its system rejected the reservations that were legitimately booked at the mistake fare, after Delta proclaimed they were honoring the mistake fare. Now of course there's the question as to whether Delta and or Orbitz/Priceline is in violation of DOT price increase/cancellation rules.

You definitely can cancel individual tickets without losing the whole itinerary. I didn't realize it allows you to select specific tickets online, so I did it over the phone, but if it provides you with that option (as alpicone said it did) you'll be fine doing it online.

I got so nervous that in what I thought was great foresight (booking for the kids on the tiny chance we'd want to go with them) was going to make me lose the whole itinerary. Thank goodness that wasn't the case. On the other hand, in retrospect I could have done a much better job choosing the dates and the cabin class. I searched through skiplagged.com which had me book through Delta and there was no way to change cabin class. Might have been been better off that way though because having booked through Delta themselves there was no way I was getting canceled or anything like that.

You can always go to coach and auction off your seats. Maybe someone on the plane will be willing to pay you to trade...

Delta was rebooking Orbitz I know.  You have data point about them rebooking Priceline 15 minute itinerary thing?

I don't believe Delta "rebooked" anyone who was cancelled by Orbitz, unless you had ticket numbers already. Then again Orbitz would not have cancelled after they issued ticket numbers.
I've taken this up exhaustively with multiple people at Delta and they've all told me they would never ticket Ortbitz's itinerary, unless you can show them a cancelled ticket number.

My wife once flew with her grandmother, my wife was in economy and her grandmother in first, they changed seats mid flight until a flight attendant realized it and they forced to change back,

You definitely can cancel individual tickets without losing the whole itinerary. I didn't realize it allows you to select specific tickets online, so I did it over the phone, but if it provides you with that option (as alpicone said it did) you'll be fine doing it online.

I had to cancel I itinerary that I booked and through Priceline I had to click on which tickets I needed to cancel. Seemed like you might be able to cancel individual tickets. I did all though so I can't confirm

Go to Delta's website find your reservation and click cancel, you'll have the option to choose which tickets you want to cancel. I just did it and it worked.


Thanks everyone. Will do.

Someone up thread was successful in getting Delta to rebook them after putting up a fight...

I believe that success was different, because they actually got a confirm email and that they canceled.
I actually got economy tickets then I tried to book additional tickets when I realized that it worked on first, and it rejected it because it said I already had the same itinerary on coach. So I rebooked switching first and last names and then I got the standard  Price Line number but then it got blocked.

Air France is best to credit? Even if you don't have any?
You can always transfer MR to KLM/AF. Of course AF is not always the best where to credit, it all depends what your planes are. So if someone ddoes not have any specific planes, KLM would be a good choice. But please don't credit them to Delta.

So i understand that you CAN change the return date for free, am i right?
If so can you please detail how to do it?

ETA: it's charging me $200 for each passenger

Were your tickets booked in C? If they were (or are fully flexible fares), play around with some dates. Delta's systems may still be messed up (and for all we know, there may be some residual cheap fares out there), but I was able to quote several date changes for around 5 cents.

3) I flew a few flights in the last 2 months in Delta and credited to Delta.  Can I get those miles credited now into Alaskan?

Thanks Dan for the great deal.

One of those tickets is for my 2 year old.
I saw someone mentioned children cannot sit in business?
From the Delta website, it seems the 2yo was given a seat.

Also, should I call Delta and add an infant (under 2), or just show up at the airport?
I seem to remember priceline asking if will bring an infant, but there is no mention of it on my ticket on Delta.com

By the way, I have not received any emails from priceline, even the reset your password so I can login and see how they dealt with this booking. (it's not in my spam either)

I got 'booking error' for my priceline ticket. I filed a complaint about it with the dept of transportation last night. They just replied that one of their considerations is how many complaints they get. So I advise anyone who got canceled to file a complaint. Just google 'how do I file a complaint against an airline' and it is quite intuitive. Of course, they did ask if i got ticketed and if i was charged. The answer of course, is no to both, which lessens our chances. But, there is power in numbers. So for all those who got in under the wire, time wise, which is my argument, if you file a complaint, we may have a chance.

I can't imagine even numbers will help you if you weren't ticketed or charged. What's your case why they should honor your reservation? You "got in under the wire, time wise?"

Hate to be harsh, but IMO complaints like this to the DOT are what might reduce the consumer protection regulations on airline tickets in the future and end the "game" for everyone. With full disclosure, I got 4 tickets out of this deal, and I'm the first to jump on a bargain, but I think you're going overboard telling people who got  booking errors (and were not ticketed) to file official complaints with the DOT.

http://www.alaskaair.com/content/mileage-plan/benefits/elite-levels-and-benefits.aspx (http://www.alaskaair.com/content/mileage-plan/benefits/elite-levels-and-benefits.aspx)

If you go to wwww.milecalc.com (http://wwww.milecalc.com) and type in your routings it should give you an idea of how many miles you got. If you have a flight in Business, add 25% bonus.
If you already credited a flight, you can´t usually recredit it.

Rough calculation, you should get some 18-20,000 miles on 4 RT to the westcoast depending on what city you transit in DTW, CVG, ATL, etc.  ;D

With Delta now you need to spend 2500 to get the lowest status besides flying 25,000 (unless you spend $25,000 on their credit cards), so it might make more sense to credit to Alaska. Also if you ever fly American Airlines, you can also credit the flights to Alaska, so it´s a great place to credit "orphan" miles...  ;D

A few hours later, I got an e-mail from Orbitz saying that my tix were going to be cancelled due to lack of availability(?!).

I explained to her that even though I wasn't ticketed, according to the D.O.T. a confirmation e-mail should be enough, and being that Delta came out with a public statement that they were honoring these tix, I shouldn't be different.

I was lucky to have to separate reservations confirmed on priceline. On one of them I messed up the dates. I needed Feb 1 and booked feb 8. I called Delta Friday in hopes of a miracle. The rep said that my ticket is basically worthless unless used day of. I was persistent but to no avail. Today I received an email that my reservation was changed or canceled. I figured she canceled it because I didn't need it. I was ready to put up a fight until I checked y reservation..... SHE CHANGED IT!! Morale of the story it never hurts to try!

Alaksa Airlines
http://www.alaskaair.com/content/mileage-plan/benefits/elite-levels-and-benefits.aspx (http://www.alaskaair.com/content/mileage-plan/benefits/elite-levels-and-benefits.aspx)

If you go to wwww.milecalc.com (http://wwww.milecalc.com) and type in your routings it should give you an idea of how many miles you got. If you have a flight in Business, add 25% bonus.
If you already credited a flight, you can´t usually recredit it.

Rough calculation, you should get some 18-20,000 miles on 4 RT to the westcoast depending on what city you transit in DTW, CVG, ATL, etc.  ;D

With Delta now you need to spend 2500 to get the lowest status besides flying 25,000 (unless you spend $25,000 on their credit cards), so it might make more sense to credit to Alaska. Also if you ever fly American Airlines, you can also credit the flights to Alaska, so it´s a great place to credit "orphan" miles...  ;D

I´m not Jewish (came to this site from FlyerTalk, same username there) but have a great Shabbos...  :)
Thanks for posting.

We booked  3 tickets with priceline from JFK to LAX for 25$each got a confirmation number but no itinerary number from Delta and no email so we called up Delta and we gave them the confirmation number from Priceline and they emailed us the itinerary so you should definitely give it a try
Title: Re: Delta Price Mistake
Post by: milechazzer on December 28, 2013, 09:35:55 PM
no.

Delta has clearly changed their tune and they're honoring the Orbitz fares if you can show your confirmation/itinerary from Orbitz. The problem with Priceline is they have no point of reference for your fare and itinerary unless you can show them documentation from Priceline confirming your Priceline "reservation" and showing the flights and fare.
Regardless ... you should HUCA

Friend just got his priceline itinerary honored after lots of hucas. They said they can't take any screenshots by email. So he just told them what he booked and how much it was, they said they can't match the exact price so just rounded it up a bit.
He said he book first class (think he actually only tried economy) ended up getting 2 first class tickets to LA!!
Took a lot of hucas and spoke to a supervisor!

I got this reply from Priceline via email: We apologize that we were unable to book your airline reservation for a
trip to Honolulu. You have not been charged for your request.

Our booking system is linked to our travel partners' booking system,
just as any other Internet travel service or travel agency. Regrettably,
there are occasional time lags, which impact true reservation
availability. What this means is that listed reservations may not
actually be available because they have not refreshed their reservation
system database at the time we access it. This time lag is common
throughout the travel industry and is not unique to us. While it is rare
that this happens, it appears that due to changing inventory the
reservation we offered was no longer available at the time we attempted
to book it. You can review the list of remaining itineraries and try
again.

We once again apologize for any inconvenience.

Sincerely,

Ashesh A.
Customer Service Specialist

Title: priceline delta glitch/issue
Post by: yoshi on December 29, 2013, 01:14:04 AM
Basically here's the story. It seems that a lot of people who booked with priceline got screwed. I booked my ticket at 11:59 (an hour before delta shut down their system) and it wasn't booked. Priceline claims they tried to issue it but the system didn't let. Priceline seems to be sending emails upon request with the booking page which you booked from and on top it has the time the ticket was initialled. Unlike Orbitz which booked it but delta didn't want to ticket the actual ticket. So as of now it seems like the issue was with priceline because no other agency had this issue. I think it would be a good idea if everyone filed a complaint against priceline to the same place. Either the priceline executive or to DOT. If someone were to create a wiki with where to complain that would be the best. That way all complaints are going to the same place.

That may be true but like I said before priceline for some reason wasn't able to book the tickets. I had booked over an hour before the glitch died and they told me they tried processing it twice.

Orbitz died much earlier than PL.

I don't know exactly what died when, but I'm consoling myself that it's okay that some of the details of my tix aren't perfect (too many segments, dates/times are good not great, mostly very low fare classes) because it's likely I wouldn't have gotten anything at all had I tried to book with Priceline or Orbitz at the time that I found out about it. Instead I used the skiplagged link from the OP and booked directly on Delta.

Totally hit or miss. My return flight shows 0 charge to change but if I try changing whole ticket big charge LOL

Also only specific dates worked not any date... Don't think it is worth calling just play with it online and if you get even luckier and your able to change be extra happy :)

Does anyone know how to set up a change online to eliminate a stopover? I have JFK-MSP-SFO-HNL, but I'd love to find something more like JFK-SFO/LAX-HNL, or better yet, final destination of OGG or LIH. But I can't figure out how to set up the flights on the 'change' screen so that I can see whether or not a more direct option is available for no charge.

first of all,if you are the type to book a glitch fare than usually you would do your utmost to get the ticket honored,more importantly for delta to have the audacity to say thier honoring them when fares like mine which was booked thru orbitz were canceled hurts.

He is saying that if I booked a ticket under my name and do not end up needing to use it, I should give it to you. In order to use it, you then also purchase a FULLY REFUNDABLE ticket and check in at the airport....and pass through security with your refundable ticket. Then once through security, you will use the ticket I gave you at the gate. Then you cancel the refundable ticket and get a full refund.....

I don't see how this would really work, unless people have done it before and obviously you would need two one way tickets to make it work.

i personally know ppl that did it
Title: Re: Delta Price Mistake
Post by: cooljoe613 on December 29, 2013, 07:29:45 PM
Using this method, I've had gate agents look at my ticket and say, "Have a safe flight, Mr. LA2NYC."  If I'm trying to give my ticket to a female and I have a very masculine name (John, Robert, Henry, etc), is anyone worried the gate agent will see that and call the female (person I gave the ticket to) out?

you can change male or female online with no issue

Priceline seemed to have this down pat in procedure, claiming they could only give us our contract details with the timestamp, passengers and price.

One of the Delta reps (had to HUCA once) had handled three calls prior to mine, in each case telling us to fax the Priceline contract over to a Salt Lake City Customer Experience Supervisor.

FYI for anyone hoping to get a human from Priceline try this method:

Call price line at the end of there first message press 1 that you don’t have a itinerary number then put in your phone number when they say they have a record push 2 for wrong itinerary then they will transfer you to a human

I had faxed my Priceline contract to Delta on Saturday night, still no response. I called them today to get a status update and they said that I should get a call by this Friday. Apparently they are overwhelmed with faxes but they are sorting through them all. I have high hopes for this one! I will say that so far Delta's customer service has been really patient and understanding. I expected to fight but they've been pretty nice about this.

I'm having a similar issue - trying to change the date on the return (sep. itin.), and they want $50 + price diff ($3k+) p/p. Flight is a mix of first and biz.

I figure I'll wait a month or two, maybe even longer, to start HUCA. Hopefully by then things will have settled down.

My priceline contract set me up for bussnies class. (Even though I chose economy.) It automatically placed me in bussnies class for the round trip.

I faxed in the contract. And am now waiting for a call back from delta.

You think they will honour the bussnies class as well? Or try and dump me down to economy

I was thinking of that, although officially (https://www.delta.com/components/popups/change_flights_conditions_txt.jsp) you can't do a date change that way. However, I'd be able to take a later flight out, and 4 more hours in Hawaii and one less stopover ain't nothing to sneeze at.

Just got my tickets confirmed! 8) 3 tix to Maui in august for $266. I just called Delta,asked to speak to a supervisor, He asked me for my priceline conf number, looked it up confirmed passengers,dates, and sent me my tix! The whole process including wait time took 30 minutes. The only drawback is that my first leg was supposed to be in biz, but i got ticketed in economy. I will call tom and ask to change it.

what 2 day shabbat ?

From the Kauai wiki (http://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=1643.0):

Quote
What about Shabbos?
Some authorities hold that there's a dateline issue with Shabbos.
The local communities keep shabbos on Saturday.
Definitely ask your LOR before you go - some hold simply that Shabbos is on Saturday, some hold that you have to keep Shabbos on both Friday and Saturday, and some hold that you have to keep D'oreisas on Friday and full Shabbos on Saturday.

If you must keep 2 days, remember that there are many questions that could come up (such as when to light Shabbos candles, how to warm up food, etc.), so make sure to discuss it all with your LOR.

There have been books written about the Chabad opinion of keeping shabbos only on Saturday. Rabbi Aharon Dovid Gancz gives an absolutely fascinating pilpul on the topic, if you get a chance to attend one please record it (with permission) and upload the video online.

Amazes me the amount of people here complaining with almost nobody complimenting Delta on the "gift" they are giving.

Wonder if the same people sending DOT complaints are emailing Delta thank you letters after they get their Priceline itineraries confirmed (which Delta had no reason to do)
I didn't send a complaint but I took your advice and sent them a thank you note.

Thanks for the idea.

in all honesty i wasent asking to bash, just curious because there are few opinions, I read about it years ago in shmirat shabbat k'hilchasa, but I think its covered here http://www.star-k.org/kashrus/kk-trav-dateline.htm

Oh, no, I didn't take it that way at all. No worries.

My point was simply that there are many opinions, so everyone follow their rav and don't take a psak off an internet forum :D.

Basically my rav's reasoning is that since this is a safek d'oreisa (in his opinion; he's one of the best known poskim in the US), I should keep shabbos on Saturday and keep d'oireisas on Friday. Rav Wosner in Shevet Halevi also paskens like that.

I booked these tickets to LA and am very excited for my trip. I am flying with my infant who at the time of takeoff will not be 2 yet but will be turning 2 during the trip and will be 2 at the time of my return flight. Will I have any issue being that I did not book a ticket for the child? Will every airline treat this differently?

I got through after 1:45 on hold. The Supervisor was obviously very irritated about this whole thing and was really rude on the phone.

I had "technical difficulties" on my end and got disconnected. I will probably wait some time before calling back about the tickets.

I had two confirmed and the third with Priceline that wasn't. I just wanted to make sure I got the third so I wouldn't have to book it with miles. I'd say you would be ok if you wait but personally I like to know it's taken care of.

My flights in 6 months. Issue is they may just get fed up and find excuses not to honor. Better get in early. I was on hold for 20 min. Rep said hell call me back when he gets supervisor. They called back an hour later and supervisor told me to call back after 12. Pretty stupid of them to tell everyone the same thing. Itll be so much worse after 12.

From Delta's rules:

Ticket Required
You'll need to purchase a ticket for your child when you:

-Have a child that turns age two during a trip — a reserved seat and ticket are required for the entire journey.

I called the SkyMiles number 1-800-323-2323 and was connected to a supervisor within 10 minutes.

Created my reservation and moved the return one day earlier for me.

She mentioned that the Priceline tickets will not accrue any miles. Not sure if that is correct or not but not going to argue that right now. Agent has been very helpful and pleasant.

Only thing is she booked me in economy instead of business. On hold now while she looks into it.

Total time on the phone so far 32 minutes.

Booked successfully for wife and myself on thursday, but was unsuccessful 2 times after that (before 1pm) to book again with my child (all 3 of us). I have those Priceline itinerary #'s.

Im on hold now for supervisor. The rep that collected all the info is telling me that what will happen is that the sup will reinstate the Priceline ticket, and then afterwards delta will see a duplicate ticket and will automatically cancel one of them. (Hopefully the right one). However i will be charged for both bookings.

Is this true that if Delta cancels one ticket i will be charged? Will i be able to dispute it with Priceline or the CC?

And our Priceline tickets were just honored by Delta's supervisor.

Hold time ~15 mins.
5 mins with entry-level customer service.
~2 min hold time for supervisor
~10 mins while supervisor took care of the problem.

Don't bother talking to the peons - they don't have access to the Priceline spreadsheet with all the contract numbers.  Just ask for the supervisors, and ignore the listed wait time (I was told 60-80 minute average wait time for supervisor).

I have a ticket that I booked directly with Delta. I've been playing around online trying to get either a more direct flight or one terminating in one of the other islands instead of HNL. Some combinations result in an error message, while some go to the booking page with exorbitant total costs to change. Has anyone had any luck online? And if it doesn't work online, is it any more likely that I'll have success over the phone?

Just got my tickets booked from the Priceline fiasco, total time was about 35 minutes.  The first line rep seemed annoyed and said the supervisor queue was over an hour wait.  I got through to the supervisor about 45 seconds.  Extremely nice lady.

Initial hold = 13 minutes
Transfer hold = 1 minute
Ticket booking & payment verification = 20 minutes

Thanks to DDF/OP I'm flying CLE-MSP-SAN with my fiancee for a total of $110.  It's economy, but I'm not going to complain about a late Christmas gift from Delta.

She mentioned that the Priceline tickets will not accrue any miles. Not sure if that is correct or not but not going to argue that right now. Agent has been very helpful and pleasant.

Can anyone tell if the fare details say anything about earning miles or not?

Did anyone try to change a trip to a "cheaper"one? In other words, I have PL tickets from NY to Hawaii but I really can't go on these dates. Do you think if I offer to switch the trip to the much cheaper jfk to Florida, would they be willing to change the dates for me? If there's no chance of that happening I don't want to hold on the phone for hours.

PRICELINE PRICING ISSUES Delta is aware of issues with customers who booked reservations via  www.Priceline.com during the morning of Thursday, Dec. 26, 2013. Delta is working with Priceline to ensure tickets are booked for those customers who received Priceline contract numbers, but did not receive a confirmed ticket number.   Impacted customers should email Delta Reservations at PricingIssue.Res@delta.com with a Priceline contract number and their contact information.

Hey everyone!

Does anyone know what will happen if there are no seats left in business on my selected flight? Will they allow a date change due to that?

I really cannot fly on my booked dates and it would be amazing if I can get a date change.
YMMV, someone reported this worked for them.

success! was on hold with delta for 1.5 hours, took the supervisor a total of 30 minutes to verify, confirm and book the tickets. best part: my parents were only supposed to be in business class from lax-jfk. the lady booked them round trip in business class :). the supervisor mentioned that a ffn couldn't be added, but if you take the confirmation number and go through delta.com you can add the ffn there and kosher food.

I have a more complicated story, I re-booked on the same flight just in business class, my economy tickets went through on Thursday but not the business class ones, (I was going to cancel the first set as soon as the second set was ticketed, within 24 hours), I got my price-line contract for the second set.
Any chance that delta will cancel the first set and honor the second set?

Is the best way to go about it to fax it and then wait for them to call me?

Well, They said they will honour my BC tickets but they won't refund my econ tickets. so I already paid $70 for my flight, I can now pay additional $75 to fly BC.

Not worth it for a 2 hour flight NYC-DTW

The first rep that picked up the phone asked me what price I had, I said $25, he said you'rree good...... The sup said right away that she has to verify it with price line, hold for 5 minutes, then came back that she found it and rebooked it

I want to give the coach tickets way to my cousin(different last names) and they can use the 4 tickets as children tickets for their kids (and buy 1 reg ticket to go with as an adult) THey don't ask for ID with kids but is it too risky because they will have 6 passengers in business and 6 in coach all with the same first and last names???

If you have an itinerary # from PL you should be good.

i selected flights, checked out, was logged in so it had my info, last page it had billing etc but i clicked to book i kept getting error that i need to enter email but there was no box for my email unlike prior 2 bookings, i figured it was bc i made account or priceline removed it to stop bookings ?

i went to chat with them few days later and the rep when she heard what i was saying cut me off mid chat and chat ended and the option to chat a rep disappeared!!

If it was 31K, assuming a good portion were 1st class and business, Delta lost 500 a ticket (conservative guess). Thats around $15.5m in "giveaways."

You can also just go online to look for your itinerary by using this Link (https://www.priceline.com/myprofile/checkRequest.do?session_key=354A050A364A050A201401021405530344f0167668&plf=pcln&INIT_SESSION=true).

Check the box that says "I don't have my Trip Number " and then you can either use your phone number or credit card to find your itinerary.

So my original ticket from Priceline was one way in biz and one way in economy. When I got the confirmation from Delta it showed both in Economy. I called back this morning and they were able to get me the biz seat again, but they had to change me to a later flight since my original flight didn't have any availability in biz. They were glad to do it and gave me no issues at all.

so they are in the business of flying empty seats?!? yes, if the seat was empty now its filled but with  booking so far in advance its doubtful that most of these seats would've been empty "anyway".

When the sup calls u, make a big deal about the time change, and because of the return change you don't have enough time at your destination, so you need to change the outgoing..

https://www.starwoodhotels.com/preferredguest/account/benefits/delta/confirm.html

it already started last march, but according to this you would not earn spg points.

If you are registered for Crossover Rewards, are a SPG Platinum or Gold elite member, and you book a Delta marketed (e.g., has a DL flight number) flight (excluding bookings made through online travel agencies (e.g., priceline.com, expedia.com, booking.com, orbitz.com, elong.com)), then in addition to the miles you already earn, you will also earn:

• one Starpoint for every one U.S. dollar or its foreign equivalent spent on Delta fares (excluding taxes and fees);

or

• 500 Starpoints for special Delta fares, often referred to as unpublished fares, including but not limited to consolidator fares, tour, groups, merchant marine and cruise packages.

I got the price line delta tickets in coach then they honored my pricline same tickets in Buisness (via delta). How in the world can I cancel those priceline coach tickets? Delta tells me to call price line, priceline said to call delta.

I have 5 tickets for coach and 5 tickets for business all with the same names on the same flight!
If I can't cancel is there a way to at least get the miles for both???
I had the same issue, Delta said that they will honor the business tickets but they won't refund the econ tickets, maybe pricline would. Priceline said I can use the $140 (2 RT to DTW) for another trip but would have to pay $230 change fee, (and she was crazy enough to think I would do it).

I ended up flying the 2 hour flight (+3 hour de-icing) in economy. :-(

From alaskaair.com
"Business Elite (Business Class) Cabin: Earn actual flight miles* flown in J, C, D, I or Z classes of service, plus 25% Bonus Miles."

So my understanding is for business you get more miles with delta or airfrance?

So what is better 150% delta miles earned from jfk to lax or 125% Alaska?

Both of your tickets will be cancelled since they will be seen as a duplicate booking.

When someone books 2 tickets for himself because of obesity they don't put the same name on both tickets.

I asked then if they could change it, they said no. I called a 2nd time with the confirmation number... again no. On the 3rd time they let a change. I only asked for a change by one day, Rep was pretty nice.

I was once upgraded to biz class MIA-JFK and we made a little bed out of the pillows and blankets on the floor in front of us (we had the bulkhead) for our baby. But anytime the fasten seatbelts sign went on, they made us pick him up and hold him (not just takeoff and landing).

Either way, I'd imagine you can only take the car seat to your seats if there's an extra seat.

Regular Priceline flights do.
IINM Priceline "Name your own price" does not earn miles.

For JFK-LAX, I got Z class. Since Flying Blue gives 125% and delta gives 150% would it be better to credit to delta? I know its skypesos but how much less valuable is it?

For JFK-LAX-HNL, I have C for the legs to and from LAX (150% on both delta and flying blue) and X for the legs to and from HNL (25% flying blue, 100% delta). I assume I can credit each leg to different programs, correct?

If you didn't get the priceline ticket confirmed yet, and the Delta flight passed already, then Delta will rebook your ticket for any other time that matches the following criteria:
Same week days (Thursday - Sunday original needs to be Thursday - Sunday for your new itinerary.)
Same travelers flying. No name changes allowed.

It could be your fare class is sold out (i.e. Fare class C, etc.).  I would call when it is time to check in for your flight.

Title: Re: Delta Price Mistake
Post by: Something Fishy on January 15, 2014, 09:23:10 AM
JFK-LAX - C
LAX-LIH - B
OGG-HNL - A
HNL-SEA - A
SEA-JFK - C

DL - A,B,C=150%, so 15345 miles.
AS - A=150%, B=125%, C=100%, so 12792 miles.
FB - A,C=150%, B=100%, so 14067 miles.

I have no AS or FB at the moment, and two DL accounts with 5.5k orphaned miles in each.

Any advice who to credit to?

Skymiles never expire, so if you don't plan on flying in the near future and you don't anticipate earining non flown miles with skyteam members you may be best off with DL.

You can do a same day change for $50. Just need to have availability in the same fare class.

I could've either figured out travel plans or worked with BAHayman to keep the DD servers running. 
Personally I have the miles to do this kind of trip anytime, but that's probably not the case for most of untold thousands of others.

So far it seems the new DD servers can handle massive amounts of traffic, though we'll have to wait for the next really big glitch to find out for sure.

There was probably 0 referred traffic directly from DansDeals to Delta. As Moshe123 mentioned, maybe Orbitz and Priceline would have some data, but even then that's only for people who used referral enabled links.

Personally, I booked with Delta via the original skiplagged link, which wouldn't show up in anyone's stats (at least not as coming from DD).

Just a couple of questions regarding flying with delta.
Im flying econ JFK-LAX and Biz LAX-NYC I have a amex plat but no delta gold

1. is there any way that I can get free luggage on both legs? Although dan mentioned in another post that you "should" be able to, is that a case of YMMV? did anyone have experience with that?
2. Will my amex plat give me priority boarding with delta on my econ flight
3. Dan metioned that he was able to reserve kosher food for the lounge in advance... how exactly do I go about doing that?
4. when requesting kosher meals for the trip the delta rep told me that on domestic flights you cant reserve kosher meals even in biz - is that true?


Thanks!

Also most people had their PL tickets honored by DL, which doesn't track through.
Either way DL doesn't have PL data from where it came from.

But yes, I still make some shekels.  Like I said BAHyaman and Proisrael are the ones to really thank.

Oviously, hence
I'm sure Dan has plenty of data about how many people booked through his priceline (the ones that actually went through automatically) and Orbitz links

Just a couple of questions regarding flying with delta.
Im flying econ JFK-LAX and Biz LAX-NYC I have a amex plat but no delta gold

1. is there any way that I can get free luggage on both legs? Although dan mentioned in another post that you "should" be able to, is that a case of YMMV? did anyone have experience with that?
2. Will my amex plat give me priority boarding with delta on my econ flight
3. Dan metioned that he was able to reserve kosher food for the lounge in advance... how exactly do I go about doing that?
4. when requesting kosher meals for the trip the delta rep told me that on domestic flights you cant reserve kosher meals even in biz - is that true?


Thanks!

I have a great itinerary for BOS-SLC-HNL next month, but the return is multi stop red eye, HNL-SEA-MSP-BOS with 2 tight connections... any chance I could switch to the HNL-ATL-BOS? Online it shows a $3,300 price difference :D. It would be worth a $150 fee to me if I could confirm it, as first on the HNL-ATL would be on the A330 instead of 757

I am going feb 16-23. I will try confirmed standby on the return (feb 23), and will post what happens. Would be thrilled for $50 to save 5 hours of my life and get a chance to sit in the A330 1st class! I called Delta and the CSR did not know about the glitch and was amazed at the deal I got, and congratulated me haha. She spoke with her supervisor and they could not change me without paying fare difference. The red eye HNL-SEA-MSP-BOS trek will be less terrible in 1st class so I can't complain too much.

I personally think that babies can be brought into Business class. Just because its not usually done, thats because people don't spend that kind of money on a baby but the idea makes total sense if a guy can afford it there's no reason he shouldn't be able to.

I felt like I should have carried a banner saying 'Thank you Dans Deals'. But your influence goes even further... Tierra Sur is booked solid.

I flew LAX-JFK yesterday and my 11:30pm flight got delayed a half hour. Delta called to notify me, while on the phone with them I checked and saw empty seats on the 9:30 flight and had the agent switch me for free.
I understand that this is being proactive for possible bad weather so obviously different then my experience, but you should definitely try a few HUCA's and see where you get.

I am very worried about my JFK-LAS flight tomorrow.  Supposed to take off at 3:35 pm but weather is supposed to be bad after 12 noon.  I see on Delta.com that there is a weather alert and that they should be accepting flight changes without a fee.  However, I cant find a flight earlier than mine that is after 7:45 am.  I wouldnt be able to make a flight before 12 noon.  Anyone have advice on this or can help me find a flight that Delta would be willing to put me on?
anyone?
would they let me fly out of a different ny airport?

Well delta has certainly been helpful here.  The rep put me on an 11:25 flight through MSP with an hour stop.  Once she was changing my first flight she changed my return with no charge to the red eye the night before my flight.  I had been trying to change that flight since the day after the glitch to no avail but now they did it.

Hey everyone, I originally booked two tickets during my spring break but just realized that I'd be flying on Purim during one leg :/ . Has anyone managed to change the date on these tickets?

Delta just informed me that the return leg of this trip (the one I'd like to change) has been delayed by 1hr. What's the best way to make sure that I can change this ticket to times I want? Also, is changing from airports from HNL to OGG a possibility?

Thanks!

This is really killing the chill...JFK- LAX, they put me on a flight now with 2 stopovers. I told them no way. They said they can refund the purchase price of the ticket, but that doesnt help me, as I paid almost nothing for them!
I want compensation!!

Even if they don't agree to give you anything, at least you get extra mileage for flying the longer routes.

In light of Dan's post here and his posting on the main site, I am very torn on where to credit my flights I got through the glitch. I have tons of UR and Starwood points so I am not very concerned about earning points on Alaska or Korean. What I really want is elite status. I looked at Alaska and Korean's elite program and it seems that you have to fly a nice amount of miles on their airlines to achieve elite status through them. Further Alaska's elite status wont do anything for me if I want to take advantage of benefits while flying on partners (excluding Delta - at least that's what I understand). So is it worth it for me to just credit to Delta to get elite status and be able to take advantage of it on many more airlines? Any thoughts?

Managed to get Delta to switch times on my booking, but maybe because I had a weird situation...

DH booked early on Glitch Day and got confirmed immediately, but the hours kind of sucked (Memorial Day weekend Departing JFK 12 Friday, Arriving LAX 3 pm, and then Departing LAX 4 pm Monday, Arriving 9 pm) and would essentially only leave us 3 days in LA over Shabbat. I was booking at the same time, but due to overlapping dates the system cancelled my ticket automatically as a dup.

I tried calling a few times to have the times of the confirmed ticket changed but each time was told that there were absolutely no changes allowed. I also wanted to cancel my toddler's ticket since we decided not to take her but they would not refund it. So I took a diff route. I told them about the duplicate booking and they said if I managed to get the contract number from Priceline they would honor the second booking and cancel the first. This was awesome for us not only because of the better times (D 7 am, A 10 am, and D 11 pm, A 7;45 am) but also because I had not booked  DD on my booking.

After staying on hold with Delta for eternity while they verified a bunch of inconsistent information with Priceline, they actually switched the times of the confirmed booking and refunded DD's ticket.

As an aside, Delta had changed the times on the return flight after my booking, so the Priceline itinerary actually showed different times than what Delta was seeing on their end. They refused to change us to a different flight that had the original times.

I guess my long-winded point is, if you have a strange situation it still doesn't hurt to try!

How much flying do you plan on doing within the year? You need a fair amount of flying for status. Also, Delta has a spending requirement (ie even if you earn the 25k MQM's necessary for Silver, you still need to have spent $2500 on tickets to qualify).

I fly somewhat often for business and I already have close to a thousand MQDs because of that and I spent a few hundred on a short Aearolineas Argentinas which I can tack on as well so I think I can at least reach silver this year. My question really is, is Alaska and/or Korean's elite program any good? Because if it isn't I'd go for Delta's. Unless there's another airline in Skyteam that's worthwhile (I dont want to do FB due to requirement of flying on a paid ticket - dont wanna risk losing miles).

Alaska miles are worth way more than Delta miles, add in the fact that upgrades as a Silver on Delta are pretty low and the spending requierment.. makes much more sense to stick to Alaska...

But what benefits to I get from alaska elite status that would make it worthwhile? If hypothetically, I dont care about the miles at all and only care about status, wouldnt Delta make more sense?

I also booked a set of unconfirmed tickets that I got a contract number from priceline for jfk-lax (16-22).  Those lax tickets are now past and I would like to get Delta to honor those.  THey tried calling me and emailing me and I called them back and asked if they could change the date unsuccessfully then and now I would like to get the date changed to later in the year.  When I tried calling tonight they said you cant be two places in the same place at the same time. 

If anyone had luck in a similar situation please let me know how you did it.

"This Flight Is Delayed Due To...Dozens Of Strollers And Carseats"

Not an announcement I've ever heard. But that's what the pilot on Delta 427 told the passengers tonight.  And for the next hour ramp workers were seen loading strollers and carseats into the baggage hold.

I keep been hearing how JFK-LAX flights have been full of Orthodox Jews the past couple weeks. I featured Los Angeles and Honolulu as 2 of the sample cities in the original Delta glitch post. (http://www.dansdeals.com/archives/38771)  When Seth  (http://blog.wandr.me/2014/01/just-how-big-was-deltas-boxing-day-sale/)wondered aloud, "It is not entirely clear why the JFK-LAX route was, by more than 3x the most popular search" I chuckled. The majority of the 1,000 people at the DansDeals seminars earlier this month raised their hands when asked if they had landed Delta glitch tickets.

On the social media post (http://dansdeals.com/archives/39698) someone commented that business class had so many Orthodox Jews that they heard the flight attendant ask one of the lone non-jews "Did you order the non-kosher meal?"

But tonight's flight apparently was greater than 90% Orthodox and our community has a famously high birth rate. Several DDF members are reporting from the flight and DDF user Smurf says perhaps only slightly tongue-in-cheek, "Average age on this flight is probably 6 yrs old."

Pictures via social media from tonight's flight:

But tonight's flight apparently was 90% Dan's Deals readers with children who were only able to travel because of this deal. Several DDF members are reporting from the flight and DDF user Smurf says perhaps only slightly tongue-in-cheek, "Average age on this flight is probably 6 yrs old."

Pictures via social media from tonight's flight:

On the kiddush hashem side, I got numerous compliments on my kids behaviour so I think a kiddush hashem was made.

Thank you Dan even more for giving me the opportunity to make multiple kiddush hashems

Dan, Please don't post. This is is not about the holocaust or הלכה בידוע . It's simply human nature that people get irritated by others who are different, especially if they feel jealous over the great deal. Many people that were on a flight for business purposes to San Francisco for example that was filled with Asians (for example) with lots and lots of kids and babies taking over the whole flight, delaying the flight by over an hour, and then finding out that all these people paid under $50 a ticket, many people would get annoyed and feel animosity. No reason to fan those flames.

You're not paying attention. Dan posted here first specifically because he felt unsure of whether it would be appropriate, expecially as originally written. The overwhelming opinion has been that posting it would not be a good idea. No one is criticizing Dan. He asked for feedback on the piece for a reason.

There are so many other reasons why many people have "10 hours" a day to spend on DDF other then unemployment or stealing from  employers that it could possibly have its own thread.

If you have such a strong negative opinion about this (or any other somewhat controversial topic for that matter) why don't you just try either filtering what you say before you post it on a public forum or just think it but don't say it at all? It would save you the trouble of feeling like you want to go OTD so to speak because your being called/labeled a troll etc and it would take into account all the other people on this forum who you elicit such strong (many times verbal) reactions from.

wow, i made a mistake by not reading 104 pages of a thread  :o
some people i guess can spend 10hrs a day reading ddf, u must either be unemployed or stealing from ur employers.
either way, the way the people just criticized u guys would be kicked out of my shul  :P
No one asked you to read 104 pages but at least before saying shut the hell up it would be nice to follow up on what was going on for a bit before that. You're attitude sucks and you make the topics you're on very unpleasant. Please get a hold of yourself and start being more civil and thought out when you post. TIA.

how many times do we have to discuss the same quote?
if u would follow up u would see that this was already mentioned, and explained, and so forth by other ddf
i guess u decided to read only the even pages  ???

first u should try delta, give them the exact flights that u were supposed to be on.
they might have it on record. if its not on record there.
then u will have to do it through priceline, they should still have it on record.
good luck

Back on subject, getting ready to board the MD-88 to ATL and then on a domestic 763 to LAX. I tried to standby on the 76W but no go since I was booked in C and they couldn't book in P. Anyway tomorrow morning, flying back on the 77L , looking forward to trying it out!  ;D :D

Dan,
How about a post on proper etiquette for flying ? I know stam most people SHOULD be mentchlich, but often frum ppl forget that flying to LA is not Ave J.

If you paid 50-100$ on a glitch fare, have some hakaras hatov, I saw some really nasty facebook posts to delta from ppl who were initially cancelled.. I can go on and on and on.. its a shame really.

To me a glitch fare is a gift horse, I embrace it and go with the flow.

To quote the el al pilot erev rosh hashana same 9 years ago as we landed in tel aviv "Zetz zich avek!"

I dont remember what the exact flights were all I have is the itinerary number page that said that the confirmation would be coming in 15 minutes

Is anyone willing to pm me their reservation number that was in a case similar to mine (the reservation was honored for later dates as it was not able to be made in time) so that way I can use that as ammo vs delta.

thanks

Ive been trying to get an unconfirmed reservation done through priceline for 1/20-1/23 confirmed by Delta
I call PL but they said that my itinerary had been purged from the system (too far from the date I made it) so they couldnt find my Contract ID or Info
I called Delta and the supervisor said that shes never seen or heard of anyone getting a confirmation for a later date on a flight that was in the past
Any Advice?
Thanks
