I have no idea what is going on. Some may say this is a stupid post to put up but there is already a 5 page thread on FlyerTalk and Delta monitors that mega board so don’t for a minute think they don’t know about this bug / issue / whatever it is.
If nothing has happened to you – ignore this post and come back tomorrow.
However, if you have not checked, you may have:
- 10,000 or 15,000 (or 2x that) bonus MQMs from yesterday or today
- You may now be a higher Medallion level
- You may have had your rollover MQMs changed
- Something else MQM related
The bottom line is I have a query in to Delta SkyMiles folks but don’t expect a response for a while. So now the hard stuff during this “who knows” time period until we get word:
Will I get to keep the MQMs? Maybe. My guess is Delta will suck them back. Time will tell.
I am now PM or DM all of a sudden. Can I get Choice Benefits? I am sure it will work but they may get sucked back.
I am now DM can I get free CLEAR? Yes, but again, they may suck it back, but maybe not.
I lost my rollover MQMs, can I get them back? My guess is if you did not want the MQMs they will remove them for you if you ask and restore your rollover MQMs.
I am now Million Miler due to this, can I claim my gift? Again, like all these above, yes but they may suck the points back.
I could go on and on all day long with this. My guess is Delta will fix this bug and suck the points back this coming week as well as any bits you now can claim due to higher status etc. So I would not choose them. However, if Delta lets them stand as a gift due to the IT bug then congrats and enjoy and I wish I had got the bonus some of you have. – Rene
PS – I will update this post if I get any word from Delta about what is going on.
