Will DL have a DMQM promo before the end of 2012?

I know, just speculation, but all 3 other legacies have now had some sort of DEQM promo this year

AA: beginning of the year (tied with their bankruptcy announcement)
UA: targeted 50% PQM bonus for select flyers earlier this month
US: DPQM for new itineraries purchased after today with the US Airways Mastercard until end of 2012

I hope not. Those promotions are the reason Skymiles is in the shape that it is in.

Rollover MQM is enough.

I'm actually holding short of where I am now. But a DMQM promotion could change that.

Just curious ... besides Rollover, what has inflated the ranks?

2 years ago in 2010, they had the AMEX MQM bonus, but anyone who earned status in 2010 and didn't re-earn it in 2011 lost it earlier this year ...

If they do I hope they start before my next TPAC.

side note to self: if you get DMQM for your TPAC you'll be diamond again next year.... do you really want that?
*thinks real hard*

No, no, please no. Let's restore some sanity to the program, at least on the MQM side.

The Amex Plat/Resrv cards have helped inflate as well.

Since I am estimating 1,000 miles short for DM I hope so. But if not I will just do a cheap out and back LOL! (I would rather stay home!)

Why would they do that when they can just sell MQMs in Q4 like they did last year?
