  1. I say you finally ditch Delta the way they ditched many loyal customers and turn this blog into one where we former Delta fliers can discover a new FF program together!

    • @D.Sue – I am a Delta Diamond for 2+ years. I will attempt to affect change before I move to another airline. However, that is not to say I will not FLY another airline and collect their points. I have almost 1MM with AA now 🙂
