Delta Air Lines (Atlanta) is one of the U.S. airlines leading the stampede to find new revenue sources to “enhance the travel experience”.
According to the airline, Delta will begin offering a new travel option for SkyMiles customers which provides access to some of the airline’s most popular enhanced travel extras such as checked bags, priority boarding and seat selection for $199. The new package, called Smart Travel Pack, introduces a practical and affordable way for customers to add a suite of extra services and additional comfort for their upcoming business or personal travel.
An eligible SkyMiles member who purchases the Smart Travel Pack will receive:
Free first checked bag for each passenger traveling in the same reservation
Priority Boarding to give the entire party more time to get onboard and get settled in their seats with carry-on baggage stowed
Access to Preferred Seats to allow selection of bulkhead or exit row seats or access aisle or window seat toward the front of the plane at no additional charge
Discounted Economy Comfort which gives customers the option to upgrade to Economy Comfort for 50 percent less on domestic flights and 25 percent less on international flights
20 percent more bonus miles for the SkyMiles member who purchases the Smart Travel Pack to get them to their next Award Ticket faster
Package features are valid for the SkyMiles member who purchases the Smart Travel Pack during the promotion period and up to eight friends or family members traveling with them with the exception of bonus miles which are only awarded to the primary purchaser’s SkyMiles account.
