In Dallas they could give miles for each game Ezekiel Elliot is suspended.
In Cleveland they could give miles for each game the Browns lose.
And they could show some love to ATL: a mile for every point of the lead the Falcons blow.

How about miles for every first quarter time out Marvin Lewis takes. Or every field goal kicked on 4th and short in the red zone.

Because then every member of WHO-DEY nation would be flying around the world in business class, even at Delta's ridiculous mileage redemption rates.

Just a heads up that if you were registered last year, it apparently doesn't carry over to this season.

Had to register again, with a new (more complicated) password.

Does this program start with regular season? Or does it include preseason?

Starts with game #1 of the regular season. 158 miles should have posted yesterday from the green bay game. You need to re-sign up this year in order to receive miles.

Anyone else get invited to the Delta Seahawks Christmas party at CenturyLink field?

Check your email again. I think the first invite was broken. I got another one and it worked.

Thanks for the tip but After trying several times and noting that I received 2 separate emails I am convinced it is in fact Full.

I received an email around 5 pm and another around 7 pm. Both emails took me to pages that said the event was full. Mrs. ATOBTTR had the same result - she did choose to “waitlist”. Something tells me a waitlisted GUC on LAX-SYD has a better chance of clearing though.

Yup, I tried registering within 2-3 minutes of receiving both e-mails and got nothing; neither did any of my other colleagues with status.

Notably, the message was sent to the e-mail address I used for 12Status, not the address Delta has on file generally for me. That indicates this was likely a general invitation to everyone in the 12Status program blasted all at once (possibly with an incorrect link at first; I got two different messages "This form is closed" and "You have been added to the wait list" when I first tried to register, but when I clicked the link in the second e-mail I got a link to a Google Docs waitlist instead.)

I get that would fulfill the goal of attracting new customers who don't already consider Delta, but it would have been nice if Medallions got an early crack at a small reserved subset of slots for an event that was likely to fill up within seconds of registration opening

I got the 2nd invite at 6:12PM and successfully went to the RSPV site a couple of hours later (got the confirmation at 8:32).

Not sure it makes a difference but my Delta email is the one they used for the invite.

It is just wrapping up now. It was a pretty cool event. Free food and drinks (including beer and wine) and they gave away 2 round trip too every 12 mins (4 for the last 3 winners). KJ Wright served his wife's favorite dessert and Tyler Lockett wrapped presents in Seahawk 16 wrapping paper.

It is amazing that DL is trying so hard to make SEA their new ATL.

If I was SEA based I would be flying Alaska on every flight over DL. Great RDM on Alaska, and I flew Alaska out in the morning from SEA this year and back on DL later that day. The service differences were night and day.

And before everyone says if you like Alaska so much go fly them bye felicia etc. I am ATL based, I am hub captive. and no I wont connect in SEA for all my flights either

Trust me, as a SEA based elite playing both sides of the aisle, the AS grass isnt greener. Upgrades are more scarce, and the new Premium class nonsense makes it hard to get a decent seat in Y on a discount ticket even as MVP Gold. They’re losing all their partners, making it harder to qualify and fly them internationally. They tend to have the crappiest terminal, counter and gate assignments at outstations - BOS is a particular offender with a miserable little dongle off of the JetBlue terminal that doesn’t even have PreCheck, but RDU wasn’t much better. The lounges are crap compared to Delta - once upon a time, soup was innovative, but now it’s barely table stakes. The onboard catering is pathetically bad, especially in F, to the point where they finally formalized the option to skip the F meal in favor of the coach cheese plate - and it was cheered by the elites (!). The N gates in SEA are currently under heavy renovation, and woe be unto you if you get stuck at N12A. The Virgin integration is a mess, and the frequent flier program strongly disincentivizes ever booking a VX operated flight right now (while being very favorable to VX elites flying on AS metal - it’s really unbalanced.). There’s no priority baggage - their claim that “all baggage is priority” is about as bogus as the claim that “every seat is first class” on a QX Q400. The AS flight attendants tend to be less engaged and available; lots more loud galley conversation, or instances where only one FA is abandoned to deal with the F meal service even once coach is finished, and drink refills are often scarce. On that note, they don’t do proper predeparture beverages in F - hope you like water. On AS, it never gets better than a 737; there’s nothing with more space or comfort to choose for transcons. Nothing has real IFE, and the Dig-E-Players they sell have a tiny, lousy subset of content. Horizon operated flights have been an operational mess this year and will continue to be that way until their figure out their pilot staffing failures.

Basically, AS was once innovative but has been frozen in amber for the last few years while Delta has “kept climbing”. I made the status match switch to AS a few years ago when Delta briefly introduced the horrible no-companions-in-C+-at-booking policy for elites, but once DL reversed that I’ve migrated back. I’ve managed to maaintain MVPG by flying partners, but with only one exception al the partners I flew (AM, AF) are gone now... so I don’t see myself maintaining the status in 2018 unless a miracle occurs.

I will say AS is better for a no status flyer, marginally, than Delta due to the lack of basic economy. They also have very generous change and cancellation policies that get even more generous for elites, which accounts for most of my remaining bookings on Alaska. Basically, all my west coast flying goes to Delta if I’m sure of the travel date, and if there’s uncertainty I choose AS for the flexibility...
