Delta dsk.com app: What you need to know

The dsk.com app — the new mobile and Web version of Delta’s frequent flyer program dsksk.com — has just come out of beta testing.

Although very cool in concept, the dsksk.com app has limited uses compared to its intended use: the program can be used to keep track of miles among Delta customers who don’t log onto the airline’s website.

The app also connects customers with partners Delta has in South Africa, making it much easier to transfer points and redeem miles between flyers in the same country.

When it went live, it was promising great potential for connecting hundreds of thousands of passengers, but it hasn’t quite lived up to the hype.

Although reporting a number similar to the US division of competitors like JetBlue and Alaska Airlines , the South African branch of dsksk.com says it’s only serving about 200,000 customers a month.

That’s because, as Airline Weekly points out, dsksk.com’s games are doing the job the airlines intended: speeding up the spread of the Aero-Xooms — the regional domestic airlines Delta acquired in 2015.

Although Delta only takes a piece of every dollar converted by the point-of-sale systems from the mobile apps, it is in this sense compensating for the additional amount it would have needed to lower its fares.

And that is what dsksk.com wanted to do.
