In early 2016 a Delta flight had to make an unscheduled landing due to a fight between two flight attendants.

A year and a half later a Delta flight was delayed due to “a dispute between an allegedly racist Delta airlines pilot and a younger flight attendant”, according to Gothamist. Continue reading Delta Flight Delayed Due To Fight Between Pilot & Flight Attendant

Back to school shopping is going strong with bonuses offers from many of the airline shopping portals.

Now another airline is joining in the fun with an offer to earn up to 1,000 bonus miles through Delta SkyMiles Shopping. Continue reading Earn Up To 1,000 Bonus Miles with Delta SkyMiles Shopping

North End Grill To Be Served on Delta Flights

North End Grill

A couple of years back I wrote about how Blue Smoke was going to be served in business class on more Delta flights. I also wrote about Delta’s Blue Smoke menu along with my picks.

For those of you unfamiliar with Blue Smoke, here is some info. Blue Smoke is part of  Union Square Hospitality Group which was founded by Danny Meyer (the guy that created Shake Shack).

It turns out that Delta really must like the food from Danny Meyer’s restaurants. Starting this fall, food from another Meyer restaurant, North End Grill will be served on the new Delta One menu. Continue reading North End Grill To Be Served on Delta Flights

Amex Offers: Spend $1000 on Delta, Get $200 Back

Amex Offers

It’s been a while since one of the Amex Offers really caught my eye.

Back in November 2015, there was an offer to get $50 off $100 with Airbnb. With this offer I bought Airbnb gift cards at 50% off! There’s also been other lucrative offers in the past. Another that stands out was from June 2015. With this offer Amex gave $75 statement credits when making a purchase of $250 or more at select stores. Thanks to this offer I got $375 in free money!

I just received a new offer from Amex Offers which can potentially save me $200 on a future flight! Continue reading Amex Offers: Spend $1000 on Delta, Get $200 Back

American Express Card Lost, Can You Get Replacement Card Number for Immediate Use?

American Express Card

In late June I was approved for the American Express Delta Gold Business card. I’ve been working towards hitting the minimum spend required to earn the 50,000 mile bonus.

Over the weekend I was looking for my card. I didn’t bring it along on my trip to Mexico so I wanted to start using it again to complete the minimum spend.

I looked in all of the places I would store the card but it was nowhere to be found! Continue reading American Express Card Lost, Can You Get Replacement Card Number for Immediate Use?

During a Delta flight flying from Atlanta to Phoenix, a medical emergency took place and many passengers got involved to help the man out.

One of those passengers who pitched in was former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow.

(The last time that I heard a story about an athlete helping out during a flight was when former Mets pitcher LaTroy Hawkins helped subdue an unruly passenger.) Continue reading Tim Tebow Pitches In During Medical Emergency During Flight

Just about every sports teams has an official airline

Last year I wrote about American Airlines becoming the official airline of the Chicago Cubs. American Airlines also became the official airline of the NBA’s Los Angeles Clippers last year. JetBlue is the official airline of the New England Patriots and the Boston Celtics.

Now MLB’s Washington Nationals have a new official airline. Continue reading Delta, Official Airline of the Washington Nationals
