How do you get Skysaver seats when there are no Skysaver seats?

You wait for a schedule change

Delta has some major schedule changes effective October 1.

Our original JFK-LAX flight was cancelled and we were automatically rebooked on a JFK-LAX departure about an hour later.

I called the Delta Partner Award desk and asked to be reaccomodated via ATL even though there's no Skysaver availability on either the AMS-ATL or ATL-LAX flights I wanted, and they had no problems making Skysaver seats available in order to rebook us.

The agent took care of everything immediately and it was the quickest DL award reissue I've ever experienced!

So I've gone from AMS-YVR-LAX to AMS-JFK-LAX and now AMS-ATL-LAX on this award booking which is what I was hoping for in the first place. Well, actually what I really want is KL601, but that ain't likely to happen unless KL has unsold seats within 48 hours of departure, so I'm pretty happy with what I've got.

Check your DL itineraries!

We have tickets to New Orleans in September (as poor Patty probably remembers from my past whining about not being able to get Skysaver seats for a while) and they just changed today also. Lucky for both of us - they are better flights than our originals, too!

That is interesting. I wonder if it works on other airlines.
