Delta has quietly increased the fee for a same day flight changes to $75 from $50, effective March 15.
The key is, it’s effective for tickets purchased on or after March 15.
Any ticket you’ve already purchased before then still qualifies for the old $50 same day standby rate.
And for Diamond, Platinum, and Gold Medallion members, the fee is still completely waived, which is good news.
Silver Medallions used to pay the same $50 non-Medallion members paid, and now they’ll pay the $75 non-Medallion members paid.
Same day flight change is an incredibly useful benefit, because it lets you change plans easily without getting socked with $200 fees, and as a top Medallion member it can save hundreds of dollars a year, and precious hours of time. While the fee increase is never a good thing to see, the saving grace is the valuable benefit for top Medallions remains untouched, and Delta’s extra generous policy of letting First Class tickets switch to any flight with a seat open got away unscathed as well.
