Just when I thought Delta didn’t love me anymore, they prove me wrong. How you ask? By upgrading me on this morning’s flight? I was # 3 for 3 seats, and my upgrade cleared, but that’s not it. By meeting me at my gate and driving me to the main terminal in a Porsche? They may never love me enough to do that! Here’s how!


They greeted me with birthday wishes this morning when I signed into the FlyDelta app for iPad. Awwww. 🙂

But there’s more. You may be aware that the annual fee for the Platinum Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card from American Express is rising from $150 per year to $195 on May 1, 2014. But today there was good news. As of May 1, all of the Delta Amex cards will no longer charge a foreign transaction fee. Further, on the same day, each of the cards will begin offering EMV Chip technology. Just call the number on the back of your card to request a chip enabled card after May 1. This is good news. I would think it had to happen as most of the other big airline card products have been waiving foreign transaction fees for quite a while now. (HT: VFTW)

All in all, a good Delta day.
