FOR PRICELINE RESERVATIONS WITH BOOKING FAILURE
Call Priceline 1800-259-2091 dial 3 and then 1 and ask for the contract receipt.
Then fax the contract to Delta with your name, email and phone number to 1801-575-3000
UPDATE: It is no longer necessary to fax in anything to Delta. Just call Delta direct, with the priceline conf number, ask for a supervisor, and they are honoring all tickets! ;D

I went but it was packed and not enjoyable. Literally every day was taken. I think a flight was delayed for several hours and they let everyone in.
Looked nice though. Nothing like jfk
+1 was very disappointing compared to JFK.

Not only was I disappointed by the thin kosher offering in the sky club, but they would not let us bring in the coffee bean food we purchased a few minutes earlier since they only allow outside beverages not food. They took our bag and held it by the front desk. What is the logic for that policy? Aren't they offering a room of respite in excess of what is offered by the main gates? We even bought this food right downstairs in the airport

Well they don't have to. According to their rules at least.

Food and alcoholic beverages may not be brought into any Delta Sky Club.
You may not hold me responsible for any actions taken that was recommended from my account or username.

I had no problem bringing in food
If you see something that is 50% off but don't need it, walk away and save yourself 100%

I had no problem bringing in food
I did it once, and after I ate, they walked around looking for outside food

It was so crowded when I was there that it was basically a free for all

The glitch is the gift that keeps giving.
We just returned. After magically getting some fairy goshmother in Delta to switch out return from HNL-SLC-EWR to HNL-LAX-JFK (HUGE if youre from 5T) we returned Business class on LAX-JFK leg. The kosher meal they served us was Kosher for Passover. Nothing like 5 month old frozen matzah and shehakol cake. The flight attendant felt bad and got us snack boxes that they sell in coach and gave us $50 vouchers.
After I wrote to Delta explaining that no person wants to be eating KFP food unless it's Passover. Not wanting to be a chaazer, I clearly told them that I am not demanding any sort of compensation, as I did not pay full price for this ticket. Just that I am giving them a helpful tip and that if they don't want upset passengers that pay for Biz class, then they should offer up-to-date-food.

They just sent my wife and I $50 Amazon GC and another one for the ticket we bought for our daughter just in case we brought her, which we didn't.
3 tickets for $292
-$150 in Amazon GC
-$100 in Delta vouchers
If we accepted their offer to be bumped on HNL-LAX, we really could have raked it in, big time.

...and giving!

Just noticed that Delta credited both my Alaska and Delta accounts for the flights. Between the two of us we earned over 60k miles...

Considering a minimum value of 1.4cpm, each ticket ended up costing $-237 ;D

Should've booked more trips :)

Just checked my accounts and it looks like they did it for my glitch tickets as well as my not glitch Delta tickets. I didn't set up Delta accounts for my kids since I figured their points were going to Alaska anyways.

Not sure I understand how it went to both since I had my Alaska FF# attached to the reservation. I did have the Delta number there originally so it would show up in my profile but then I changed it before the flight.

I would try submitting a claim for the flights and see if Delta will give me the points but I would have to has them take away the Alaska miles and give me Skymiles instead.

From the Mileage Request Credit page "Retroactive credit will be given for flights taken no more than 30 days prior to enrollment into the SkyMiles program."

Oh well. For anyone with the 30 days make sure to set up the account. For those who haven't traveled yet make sure to open a Skymiles account. Maybe try using your Skymiles, Alaska and Flying Blue at some point before the flight. Maybe they will credit more than two  ;D
