Did you miss the April Newsletter (cuz I sure did)?! Opppessee. Will try not to make that mistake again but I was finishing my last AeroMexcio run and qualified for Delta Diamond Medallion until 1FEB2020. It took me 4 months this year vs 1 month last year due to the bat loco crazy Delta change to Amex MQD exemption to 1/4 million dollars that I just did not want to go for this year (but I may just do it next year). So what else happened in Delta land? Let’s take a look:
