HEY AWA !!! Delta Airlines 2003 Elite Rule Makes sense

I like Delta's new elite rule..it would save a lot of exception letters, calls, etc.
Delta Airlines Elites will not decrease status by more than one level in 2004 from their 2003 level

I think you are the only person on the planet that like their new changes. I am not up to date on every change, but they made their program far inferior than America West's.

Delta's new policy is asinine and self-defeating.

The plain fact of the matter is that we are in the worst economy since the oil-shock mid-seventies. Companies and individuals need to look for cost savings. I am quite sure that Delta is cutting costs wherever possible and squeezing suppliers. Why should they be so flabbergasted that their customers would do the same.

The only thing that they have accomplished is driving away many of their best customers who--when they are ready to start purchasing full-fare tickets again--will have moved on to another airline. Just look at the numerous posts from DL elites on the various boards asking for advice on getting their status comped.

As a DL Platinum Medallion and an HP Silver, I can tell you that referencing ANYONE saying Delta made a good move is a big mistake.

If you wander over to the Delta board, you will see THOUSANDS of anti-Delta posts about these changes.

If Centurion holds an American Express Centurion (black) card, the changes are great for him! Centurion members receive Delta Gold Medallion status and don't have to worry about requalification.

Um - As a DL Platinum, I can tell you that you are missing the point. The point is not what the qualifications are but *what* you get when you do qualify for the various levels i.e. the benefits are all gone for DL elites as of 2004 - for more info go to any one of the threads on the DL forum and you can see for yourself why folks are up in arms over the changes to the program
