Delta Airlines makes ticekting more difficult!

Delta has made things even more complicated for fliers with Monday’s announcement that the airline will have  five new levels of service. Now, instead of economy, premium economy, and business class, you’ll have Basic Economy, Main Cabin, Delta Comfort+, DeltaOne, and First Class.

And to make matters more interesting the carrier will divide the economy and premium economy into sub categories. 

Often there are 5 or sub fare levels in each class. This results in thousands of fare combinations.

Boy I’m really glad that I got out of the airline ticketing business!
