Yeah no kidding. Originally a single level with lots of restrictions, then two levels with second higher level with less restrictions, but the lower level was still the "Standard." For what three-fours years now three levels with the low still being the "Standard". Now the new "Standard" just doubled.

I guess we should be happy that it was not presented with the preamble of "In order to bring Delta mileage redemption in line with the industry"

I prefer to think in terms of late 1990 early 2000s Turkish Lira. Back when a million was worth few hundred.
