As a discount Y flyer for both personal and business, I am getting hit by at least 50% on my RDM earning, and another 40% on the back end when I redeem.

That's a 70% devaluation for a LT Gold who actually flies the airline regularly and likes the occasional F trip as a reward. Even if I want to take my wife for a long weekend in Hong Kong in J class, I'm getting dinged for an extra 60,000 miles RT. If I was EXP, then my biggest benefit just got devalued 50% (only 4 SWUs).

It seems to me that the <redacted> either can't do math or they just plan on churning Citi cards even faster.
