Refreshed AMEX Platinum in the future? Or Titanium?

Now that there is widespread uncertainty on how cardholders will shop, travel and work, I'm wondering what is being discussed behind closed doors at AMEX...

To start, I think they will lower the AF back to 450, switch back to plastic (contactless) versions of the card, get rid of the Uber benefits and increase point transfer ratios to airlines/hotels (vs category bonuses such as 5x airlines). Basically going back to the card before the CSR hit the market.

Either that or introduce a re-purposed Titanium card that Plat cardholders can downgrade to. A new card that fits between Plat and Gold by bonusing streaming, groceries, gas etc and offering Amazon Prime. What are your thoughts?

Just to note, there's already a thread speculating about a product bridging Plat and Centurion: SPECULATION: new USA card priced between Centurion & Platinum?

In the absence of actual news, perhaps the existing Plat general thread is better for further Plat discussion: American Express personal Platinum (USA) metal card
