Especially because I think that mileage Running may in some ways have morphed into bumpertunity running with Delta!
They gave 6 of us volunteers 1000 vouchers each but 2 people they simply forced off the flight.
Have you had the chance to accept gift cards for a Delta bump yet?
His flight was delayed over five hours for mechanical reasonsin thirty-minute increments, no less, which made him even more miserable in the airport.Another drawback is you can not combine more than one of these per ticket ( you could in the past ).The Bumpertunity Alert immediately starts to sound!I think in the future I should only share these stories with Rene when I get gift card bonanzas like this one (what in the world was I thinking).But no email came, so I pulled up the Delta website and complained, keeping my comments short but to the point and filling out all the necessary info like flight and ticket numbers.As mentioned cash is always a better choice because, while a travel voucher does spend like cash when buying a Delta ticket (and does earn you full points like cash you are clearly limited to Delta.Reader BOB, who we all know and love, was kind enough to show not just a photo of the amex gift cards he got for a bump, but share what happened to him.This is all but cash and cash I like very much.But for us the downside of these Delta vouchers is that, officially, only you or someone flying with you can redeem them.I was once on a CRJ200 flight where, due to a number of issues, they had to get 8 people off the flight.Well: They can only be used by YOU (or those with you on same PNR).They had very interesting stories which made the long boarding process wait time bearable.
Your browser is not supported.Clearly, to me, there is only one choice of cards and that is the amex gift card even with the 6 month expiration date.The last downside for us is they are for the most part only good on tickets.I have had this happen once and I just loved it (will tell you why in a bit).This is such good, and amazing, news.But the gate agent promised to take care of her and said she would see a 200 voucher in her account by the time she landed.
