I downloaded Delta’s latest update for its smartphone app yesterday. In my case, we’re talking iPhone, but do check out the Android app as well if that’s what you use.

In any event, the update included a fix to an issue that has annoyed me for years. Basically, if anything happened to your flight…delays, etc, the link to view the upgrade list almost always disappeared in my experience. Delta has heard our cries.

We now have a separate “button” that should allow us to take a look at the upgrade list, no matter what. Yay!

Other Fixes

In addition to the upgrade list feature, Delta pushed an update to the “Track My Bags” feature to provide a quick summary of baggage status with access to more detailed information. The update also repaired an alignment issue with the shopping calendar.

I’ve found Delta’s smartphone app to be a cut above other offerings, and it’s good to see continued improvements. Now if we could just get a fix that pushes updated seat assignments and gate changes to Apple Wallet boarding passes. Come on Delta, you can do this!
