I had a post before about how to enter in your “Known Traveler” number you got as part of GOES that you can have rebated back when you get the Platinum Membership Rewards card ($100 good for 5 years) and also gets you TSA Pre as well.(not to mention $200 per year in incidental fees credited back to you and Skyclub access and other lounges as well).
For a while now, if your Skymiles “name” did not match your Secure Flight Passenger name with Delta is was no big deal. That is now changing and you may be getting emails from Delta to align the two. This is being mandated by the government to Delta to have these two the same.
So let’s say that you have ONLY your middle initial on your Skymiles account but full middle name on your passport, then you need to update. Now this must be fixed and you should first try calling Delta online support to do this at 888-750-3284.
But for me, having a European name, I have a space in my last name. In the past Delta would NOT allow this and put my last name all as one word. But, on my passport, it has a space. If you find yourself in the same situation, you will have to FAX a copy of your passport to Delta to 404-715-9220. It would be a good idea to include your CORRECT name and Skymiles number on the page you are faxing to Delta as well.
The other big issue is that you may have to have a bunch of your current reservations reissued. Be alert as you may or may not get correct Skymiles and MQM credit for them as well. Either way, NOW would be a good time to jump on this and make sure all is correct.
The big perk is we should get many more “3 beeps” at TSA checkpoints when all is done right! – René
