A few weeks ago, I posted about a rumor that Delta was about to make changes to their Same Day Confirmed Policy that included:
- The desired flight must have availability in the originally ticketed fare bucket, not just the same cabin of service.
- Fee waiver for Gold Medallion/Platinum Medallion/Diamond Medallion only applies if the desired new flight is within 3 hours (before/after) the ticketed flight. Otherwise, $50 fee applies.
- The Same Day Confirm request must be made before the departure time and on the same day as the ticketed flight. (You don’t have to wait until 3 hours before the desired flight.) With redeye flights, it can be on the same day or the prior day.
Big changes are coming
