What’s the scoop with Delta?
Delta Air Lines is helping stranded Amtrak passengers whose tickets were canceled because of Tuesday’s train crash in Philadelphia by offering them re-booking options – some for free.
If you have an existing ticket for the previously scheduled Amtrak service in the Northeast Corridor, you can fly for free between New York (LGA) and either Boston (BOS) or Washington (DCA) on Delta’s shuttle service.
The offer was effective on May 15th and is in place through May 19th, 2015.
Delta’s kind offer / marketing ploy for its northeast shuttle service has led them to increase seat capacity on affected shuttle markets with a larger aircraft type to offer travelers the following service:
- Existing Amtrak tickets are being honored for travel between New York and Washington or Boston
- Change fees for travel on shuttle flights booked between DCA, BOS and LGA are waived
- One-way fares at or below $315 for new shuttle tickets booked between DCA, BOS and LGA are also offered
The Delta exception policy states that for the dates of impacted travel May 15th through May 19th, 2015, you can re-book as long as the new travel originates on, is booked no later than and the ticket is reissued on or before May 22nd, 2015.
How do I get the Delta offer?
Amtrak customers with an existing ticket can contact Delta Reservations to be booked and ticketed.
