delta news

February, for being a short month, has been packed after January’s news update! The new “goodies” in the Skyclubs have been well recieved by those who have tested them so far; I look forward to a sample myself soon too. I am done with my MQD exempt spending (ahead of my goal btw) now and can turn to focus on building up my MQMs and maybe a mileage run or two soon – gotta build up my totals for 2016 now 😉 But what has caught my eye this month with our Delta and aviation in general? Let’s take a look.

  • A pilot shortage is on the horizon is here and also here

March will start the “official” 2014 medallion year. I think it will be interesting to see if many who “said” they will leave Delta have and what the upgrade lists look like then. The no upgrades for JFK-SEA/SFO/LAX will begin sadly and that impact will be interesting to say the least. Just buckle your seat belt and enjoy the bumpy ride kids – René

  1. Now if LGA could somehow wrangle a high-speed rail into Manhattan in addition to the new terminal, that would be progress. I assume the taxi union would rather die than even allow that speculation.
