Lost Status. What's the quickest way back?
I was a longtime NW PE member. After the Delta takeover I jumped to Continental. I didn't like that and they pulled the United stuff. I had PE status on Delta until the end of Feb. so i started flying them again. not enough miles last year to make any status or rollover. I've flown approx. 13k this year so far. I've only had one flight since my status has expired. Whew...I really miss the perks of status. That plus the fact that I only need about 150k to make MM....well I've decided to mileage run it out. What would you guys think would be the way to get my status back the quickest?
Programs: Delta DM, SPG Plat, Hyatt Diamond, MTA Rust, Hertz Five Star something or other
You could also ask a Platinum or Diamond medallion to gift you status. Or you could challenge on another airline and then have Delta match that status- all options I outlined in my blog post about coping with the loss of elite status.
