Delta's iphone App review
I'm at the airport about once a month, sometimes more. I live away from my family and a lot of my very dear friends. I've often joked that I need to have a direct deposit to Delta for $250 each month. I also travel pretty often for work. Not as much by plane these days, but every now and then.
With all of this travel, I would easily consider myself an expert traveler. I'm quick in the security lines. I know my way around airports. I never check a bag - I can pack anything into my carry on bag! The only thing I need is upgrade status. I'm not there yet... close, but not there.
One thing that has made my life even easier is the Delta Airlines iphone app. I only fly Delta. My grandpa worked for Delta for 40 years so the airline is in my blood. Also, living in Atlanta, it's just easiest to fly Delta. The app is AMAZING. It's everything I wanted it to be and more.
With the app you sign in with your skymiles number and it automatically pulls up all of your itineraries. You can even book flights from the app, I haven't done that just yet. You can set up push notifications from the app and it alerts you when you can check in, and change seats, and it continues to update you with your flight's gate and any gate or departure changes.
The best part is the boarding pass. I don't have to get it in my email or have it texted to me anymore, it's right here in my app. And it saves expired boarding passes, helpful I can imagine if you have to do expense reports, etc.
It's SO EASY. I've moved the app to my front screen on my iphone even though I don't fly every day. It makes me happy to see it.
I'm off to the airport today to head to LAS VEGAS with 3 of my very best friends, Jen, Jenn and Lindsay.
