Special Welcome To Consumerist Readers!

Consumerist.com is a great website/blog filled with pro-consumer tips and stories. After they ran a story on Thursday about Delta’s retroactive baggage fee I let them know that according to Delta’s contract of carriage you have the right to demand a refund due to the rule change.

Their current top headline is “Delta’s Retroactive Baggage Fee Entitles Travelers To A Full Refund,” with a link back to the 2nd checked bag fee roundup that I wrote back on April 23rd.

So I’d like to give a special welcome to any consumerist.com readers who have found their way over to DansDeals.com!

Along with practical advice, credit card tips, mileage promotion scoops, and travel information you’ll find some of the best deals, free stuff, and price mistakes available on the web right here at DansDeals.com.

Ask any question that you may have (well, almost any question!) and either I or one of the many helpful commenters will try to help you out.

Speaking of Continental, 2 thumbs way way up for having the courage to tell United to go take their sorry airline and find a different partner! (Have I mentioned yet how much I love Continental? Full disclosure: Continental gave me complimentary transcontinental upgrades into first both ways on my recent $98+ RT flight.)

Here’s hoping that CO will now hop on over to OneWorld and spurn DeltaNorthworst’s Skyteam…(I’ve got over 2.4 million reasons for rooting for this development!)

2nd Checked Bag Fee Roundup…

Update: AA has joined the party and United has extended the elite exemption to anyone traveling with an elite member.

Originally posted on 04/23:

Here is my shot at providing some sanity to the new baggage fee. While most airlines have adopted it, they don’t share the same exemptions. The airlines are still tinkering with these new fees, so thay are all subject to change. While I hope these are all accurate, mistakes happen, so please feel free to comment if you think you’ve found one.

Here’s where it gets interesting. According to the contract of carriage of nearly every airline, if they change policies after you buy the ticket and don’t grandfather the old rules you have the right to demand a refund of your ticket. As of the time of this posting Airtran and Delta are not planning on offering a free 2nd bag to people who bought tickets before they announced their respective rule changes, and therefore should have to give out full refunds to people affected if they demand it…

On The Road…

I’m on the road for Pesach.

Updates will be sporadic until 04/29.

I’d also like to take this time to congratulate O.T. on his “Dansdeals inspired wedding.” What’s that supposed to mean? Well, here’s the email he sent me in the end of March that just made my day. I’m not going to use his full name in case he doesn’t want it to be published…

“Dan,

I hope you’re well. I stumbled upon your blog a long time ago when I was searching for information about the Starwood Amex card. I bookmarked your site and I’ve been checking it daily ever since.

About 6 or 7 months ago you blogged about a 1 dollar fare sale from Spirit Airline. I live in Los Angeles, so I figured out that I could fly to Guatemala for a dollar each way ($80 r/t after tax). The only catch was that I would have to fly in on a Wed and out 32 hours later on a Thur. It sounded crazy but fun. I called my (girlfriend) while at work, laughing on the phone, and she said, why not, let’s do it. Long story short, I hired a tour guide and private car for the day and we saw all of Guatemala City and Antigua within the span of 10 hours. (Just a little background info: My girlfriend and I had been talking about getting married in the months leading up to our trip and the thought of another cookie-cutter L.A. wedding really wasn’t something we were excited about.) When we were in La Antigua (45 min outside of Guatemala City) our tour guide told us we had to see a hotel there that was beautiful. We told him we weren’t interested and wanted to see more of the culture and not the hotel. He insisted. We gave in. As we were walking around this hotel (Casa Santo Domingo) we were enthralled and found it to be beautiful. At a certain point I looked at my girlfriend and said “this would be the perfect place to get married.” She was thinking the same thing. The light bulbs went off for both of us. That was 5 months ago. In less than 3 weeks we’re getting married in that hotel in La Antigua with over 100 of our family and friends.

Anyway, thought you might be interested to know what a post on your website can lead to!

Best regards,

O.T.”

That is one “Smoking Hot” deal indeed! Thanks for sharing your unique story and once again, congratulations!!!

United Raises Change Fee To $150, Adds Saturday Night Stay Requirement, Matches Double Elite Qualifying Miles Promo.

United will now charge a shocking $150 (plus fare difference) to change a non-refundable domestic ticket. In addition in order to get the cheapest fares they now require a Saturday night stay for all markets in which they don’t compete with a LCC (low-cost carrier).

Now we play the waiting game to see if the other majors match…
United sparked the industry to move from 2 to 1 free checked domestic bag back in February. Over the past few months US Airways, Delta, Northwest, and Continental (in that order) have all matched that policy.

United has also added their own double elite miles promotion.

A Simple Churning Strategy…

You guys let me off easy with this one, some of those other articles would’ve required way more time and effort!


After being denied a signup bonus from United/Chase, I went right back and reapplied for the card but just left the mileage plus number blank.

United/Chase automatically generated a new mileage plus number for me and deposited my bonus into that account. Then United had no problem merging the account into my existing mileage plus account…

Good luck!

Delta And Northwest Come To Terms On $17.7B Buyout Agreement…

www.newglobalairline.com

In what will be looked back upon as the beginning of the end for true US airline competition, Delta and Northwest have agreed to be the first in what is sure to be a wave of merger activity.

They are currently the nation’s 3rd and 5th largest carriers respectively by passenger enplanements, but if the DoJ approves the merger the new Delta will be the world’s largest airline.

Continental, the nation’s 4th largest carrier, is now finally free to buy back its golden share from NWA and find its own merger partner. It will undoubtedly leave the Skyteam alliance, from which it was for all intents and purposes snubbed from just last week.

I’d be extremely (and quite pleasantly) surprised if Continental and United don’t announce their own merger plans by the end of this month. I would venture to say that Continental and its more adept management team would be the one acquiring the much larger United, but will move to the Star Alliance and probably keep the United branding as well.

The funniest thing (well, besides for the idea that Delta and Northwest could possibly become America’s “premier carrier”) about the Delta/NWA merger press release is the notion that all hubs for both carriers will continue to be hubs under the new Delta Airlines.

I don’t think that there’s ever been a major merger in the history of aviation in which all exiting hubs survived.

Sure some hubs may remain as so-called focus cities, but that’s not much to brag about. Just ask Pittsburgh what happened when America West bought USAirways.

There’s simply no way that 2 carriers that are merging in order to have improve their operational efficiencies would operate 7 domestic hubs. Memphis and Atlanta? Cincinnati and Detroit? No way that’s happening.

At any rate, I predict that the next month will hold some very interesting M&A activity in the domestic aviation industry…
