Hi all,

Bought a ticket from Delta instead of Expedia (expedia's ticket was over $100 less.) Immediately completed Claim Form and included all of Expedia's ticket info quoted to me.

What a scam!!!! I took a chance on Delta's honesty and lost, not the biggest deal in the world... but...What a scam!!!!

Here is communications from Delta:

Thank you for contacting Delta Air Lines.

Here is 2nd letter I got back after pointing out the proof of my lower fare which was contained in original Claim Form:

Thank you for your e-mail to Delta Air Lines.

They do NOT honor their best far guarantee - I filed the same day, and had made a screen shot as proof.But hours later when they checked they said they could not find the lower fare and denied my claim.

And then delta lowered their flight on their website AFTER I made my claim, but to get the fare that was lower than what I had booked at the day before ON DELTA I had to cancel one flight and rebook.

Not even a "best fare guarantee" on their own website.

I used to be a happy Delta customer - no more.


I have spent numerous frustrating hours in attempting even a credit for future travel -- let alone a refund on 10 tickets I purchased for my family to celebrate my 50th birthday this January.I received a fare notification today and found that Bing.travel listed the EXACT same flights I purchased on Expedia for about $400 each a5 $265.48.

I tried the Customer Service number and internet help. Customer Service was adamant in denying my request for at least a credit for future travel and the internet help department was adamant that the fare was not on their website. I offered to provide the URL of the screen I was looking at, but was told not to because it would prove to be an old fare (or only 1 ticket -- not 10). I tried to book tickets for 10 online and the fare was good and there were 10 seats -- TOGETHER!!!

They insist that the tickets must be re-issued for $150 each -- EVEN THOUGH THE FLIGHTS ARE IDENTICAL!!!! The "supervisors" won't even give courtesy travel vouchers for the credits. I have always been happy with Delta, but so disappointed.

I have wasted hours and emotion and lost well over $1,000 for booking early.Disheartening when Orbitz AUTMATICALLY refunds differences until travel (NOT JUST 24 HRS.)
