I would have laughed in your face had you told me before Monday the 8th that Delta will have a complete computer meltdown that would last for most of a week and strand thousands. And then the 8th happened. The scary part is will it happen again or to what airline next? What a month. But more than this one HUGE event went on. Like what? Well we end the month with a 12% jump in LEVEL 1 awards to Europe on SkyMiles but look what else happened:
