I guess I should not be surprised. I am really stunned how many said even Delta DIAMOND status is no longer worth going after. It is in fact fitting that today’s winner, Gino, said:
“No. Having Delta status is nice in an IROPS situation, but I’ve gotten great treatment and upgrades both with and without it.”
And you know Gino, first congrats, but next you make a huge point for me. If you can just go buy 1st class or even coach and get good treatment at any airline why shoot for any kind of loyalty?
I guess I am just so upset and really down right MAD over Mr. Ham Sandwich himself, the new Delta president, Glen Hauenstein who tells Bloomberg the days of even getting an award ticket on Delta are numbered. Why even try anymore folks. Can this bean counter not count to two or three as if a SkyRuble is only worth 1 cent, there are MUCH better choices than Delta and the Delta AMEX card. I think I need a drink! 🙁 – René
OH, yes, Gino, I will email you and get your prize on the way soon! 🙂
