Delta emailed us yesterday with two significant changes to our itinerary. We had booked outbound and inbound on different dates so we have two one way tickets. The outbound on 10/24 that was direct now connects in ATL departing at 6 am out of JFK. The inbound was changed yesterday twice. The first time it remained a direct but at 11:59 pm we received another email that our 11/7 flight was changed to connecting. Both flights are Saturday to Saturday (2 weeks). The inbound has a 3 hour plus layover and we get arrive at JFK at midnight.

What do you think the chances are that the flights would return to non stop? I'm asking because IF Delta refunds us and not issues a credit voucher for future travel we are considering switching to JetBlue who is offering direct.

Louise--Delta is REQUIRED to give you your money back if they significantly change your flight and obviously switching to a connecting flight is a significant change. So, that part of the equation is a given, if you decide you want to bail on the flight. As to whether the nonstop will be reinstated, that takes a crystal ball that none of us has, at this point. Best wishes, hope you are able to take your trip. (Oh, and just for good measure, there's no guarantee that Jet Blue wouldn't change their flight to connecting.. Although they do have a much longer relationship with the flight from NY, versus Ft. Lauderdale.)

And what does all that change do to the 72 hours covid test viability?

This happened to us in the past. Common delta flight is JFK to Atlanta. Unlikely to change back in my opinion. They will refund your money since it changes times significantly enough.

Yes they did refund our tickets and comfort upgrade price. I booked us on JetBlue direct from JFK for 10/24-11/7

Thanks, Carol. We aren't that big of a group this year but still another 3 couples are waiting with fingers crossed to see what happens.
