My dreams of a soft landing from Delta Diamond status have been shattered. Along with roll over MQM’s Delta has posted future membership levels that will change at the end of February and things don’t look good for me.
In 2010, I went out of my way to fly over 125,000 miles on Delta metal and achieved Delta Diamond status. In 2011, I only flew about 56k miles.
Delta has posted their roll over MQMs and future membership levels and I will be downgraded from Diamond to Gold status next year. I’m a big boy, I can handle the downgrade.
The thing that really gets to me is that many people were sent a targeted promotion to earn Platinum status after only 3 flights, in coach. While others received a targeted promotion to earn Gold status after only 2 flights, in coach.
When I tried to register for either promotion this is what I got since I was so loyal to Delta. A big goose egg for the fast track offers and a hard landing from Delta Diamond to Delta Gold.
Does anyone (AAdvantageGeek or any readers) know of status challenge or match opportunities to American?
Maybe if I fly Delta less I’ll be targeted for one of their ridiculous status offers.
