1.5 SkyMiles for every $10 spent for Platinum Medallions.
2 SkyMiles for every $10 spent for Diamond Medallions.

The kicker, however, would have to be that they can be spent on any Delta flight and on any fare which is for sale for that flight. Moreover, a flight for which these SkyMiles are used would earn the same number of MQMs as they would if cash had been spent.
That could be something they associate with the Amex card. The UA card allows you to to use miles at the standard rate for any flight you can buy tickets for. I'm not sure I have the details right, but if you really want to go somewhere and have the miles to burn, you can get a seat.

As far as DL announcing their plans, who's to say they've finalized any changes?
