Delta Has Now Expanded Basic Economy To Award Tickets
Delta was the first major carrier to introduce basic economy tickets back in 2012. These tickets don’t have advance seat assignment and you can’t make ticket changes. Previously these basic economy fares were restricted to revenue tickets, but Delta is now offering basic economy fares on some award tickets. Delta is claiming that this is a test and loyalty members have requested more flexibility on more types of Delta products. To that I say Delta is lying, I’d be very surprised if Delta doesn’t roll this out across all flights and then starts to release less normal award fares than before all in the name of more “flexibility”. My level of trust in Delta is precisely 0%.
