I have received a bunch of positive feedback on my series covering my flight crossing the million mile mark lifetime with Delta Air Lines and the next part in the series will be the actual 747 that brought me across that line. But that is for later on.
Right now there seems to be a bug on Delta.com that has a bunch of folks rather annoyed. As expected, there is even a long thread about this ongoing bug on FlyerTalk. I have not personally been affected by this bug and as you can see looking at my total above Delta.com is correctly displaying my number. But now look at my wife’s progress toward becoming a million miler:
Ruh roo! BLANK. What happened to her totals? Now in the grand scheme of things for most folks this is not a big deal at all as it can take many many years of constant flying to reach 1 million miles but I can understand many like to track their progress on their MY DELTA page that has SkyMiles information.
So what are your options to check up on your totals until this bug is squished and fixed? Well you can always reach out to Delta on twitter via @Delta (that was @DeltaAssist before). But there is a much faster option. Simply do this:
1) Log in to Delta.com
2) Click on THIS link
What you are going to see is a bunch of what looks like gibberish but if you carefully look in the middle of the page you will see your “lifetimeMQM” followed by your total number of MQMs.
There happens to be a bunch more fun raw data to check out as well including things like:
- AMEX spend totals across all cards
- Million Miler Member Tier i.e. 1MM, 2MM etc.
- If you are an International Customer i.e. MQD exempt
- Lots of other bits
Maybe it is just me as a Tech Geek but I find all this vs the pretty graphical representations on Delta.com (when working) to be fascinating and I look forward to visiting this link in January to see if it updates faster than the home page when I am working on again meeting my MQD exempt spend in a few weeks next year.
This Medallion raw data link reminds me of the previous hidden raw data link that many blogs, and FlyerTalk, talked about regarding your value as a customer and other background data that can be found via THIS link. We all know Delta loves data and data about us.
Anyway, I am sure Delta will fix this one day soon but until then we have other means to keep up to date on our million mile balances as well as other information. Have you found any other raw data links like the ones above that work to display your personal Delta info and facts? – René
