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

ok heres the story. i bought glitch tix for my wife and i for april 13-30 JFK-LAX. my wife is actually in L.A. right now and staying till after pesach. im going back and forth till then... ive tried calling Delta numerous times to get my ticket changed, and seeing as my wife is not going to use the outbound ticket anyways it would be a giant waste of our first class tickets if she cant make the outound flight! HUCA has not been helping and i dont wanna lose out on these tickets especially since we would like to use the return flight on the 30th! does anybody have any suggestions on how i can at least keep the return half of the ticket? normally Delta has a "Use it or Lose it" policy for these things....
Not aware of any airline that allows you to fly a different leg if you missed the first one.

Did u ask them to just cancell the first leg ? I've done that with other airlines in the past.

Yes, I got the same message. I called them and they told me the estimated time of arrival changed by a few minutes and you will get that message. No chance they will allow you to change your flight for it though.

I got the same message too, called once and HUCA. changed my ticket from NYC-CVG-LAX  to Non-stop a day later. called back today and changed it to the lie-flat flight.

I booked a Delta "mistake" fare from LGA-MSY (through Orbitz) for a trip in July. It was initially cancelled, and then Delta graciously rebooked the itinerary for me in "X" fare.  However, for whatever reason,  myh itinerary has a connection in Cincinnati both ways. I know Delta also has nonstop flights from LGA-MSY, so I was wondering if there is any way I might be able fly nonstop, without paying their exorbitant change fees.  Would appreciate any ideas/suggestions.

thx

People have had mixed reviews. I personally could not get any changes, but others have reported success, especially within 24 hours.

What's the "angle" within 24 hours?

I got a flight to HNL on this glitch, through LAX, and now my flight is delayed 40 minutes. I booked a flight on HA to the BI about an hour and a half after I was supposed to land and now Im scared I wont make that flight. I called delta, theyre willing to change my flight but have nothing the morning I want to go and only a flight through LAS the night before but I have Business/First for the first leg with lie flat seating and it doesnt look like theres real business/first on the flight to LAS. Anyone have any suggestions?

maybe see if you can move your HA-BI flight back?

Try this. If you are both scheduled to fly out together, somehow get her boarding pass scanned on the outbound flight. Maybe have hers scanned by mistake. Just make sure that you can prove somehow that you were on the flight as well, otherwise you will lose the return flight. Or find a child to use it one way. Maybe something from a carpool. ;)

I booked it through United and they want to charge me a $75 change fee.

I don't understand. Why can't she go the airport, scan her boarding pass, and right before she gets on the plane, have to leave for an "emergency". Make a fake phone call, or claim she forgot her purse. Use your imagination. What are they going to do, force you to board?
