End of the year roll call

Well, with the AMEX DM waiver gone I decided to switch all of my travel to OneWorld last year.

Most of my travel is international and 100% leisure, always finding fun places to MR as I don't have to work a regular work schedule.

It's been a good run with DL but I am stuck at 800,000 Lifetime Miles, so I won't make MM any time soon.

Although I credit all of my OW flying to AA I don't actually fly AA too often--its usually BA due to the amazing discounts with AARP & the BA Chase CC we get.

Not sure what I will do if they take away the awesome partner earnings.

So, I shall bid DM a farewell.....


Post up your numbers!

And the purpose of you post is to?? Nobody really cares. I hope everyone does not start doing this. It will be worse than the "I am 3/4 of a mile from being Gold, how can i get there without spending
any money"? Geez!

LoL....such hostility.

Guess folks are a bit different over here in DL.

Not that anyone cares but I will set a new personal segments record this year: 181. Yuck.

People are grumpy and having a bad day because of today's announcement by DL of the biggest devaluation in benefits ever. A handful of passengers will board the aircraft 30 seconds later next year. Lot of people will be losing a lot of sleep over this change

How’d you do that??

You got 60,000 more MQM than I did but spent $600 less (and flew one fewer segment).

I'm done flying for the year. Less segments but more long flights than last year. I had to buy F to hit the MQDs for DM on my very last flight (YVR-SEA-IAD). Cost me an extra $300 but was well worth it for the GUCs, as well as the fact that F appeared to be sold out on SEA-IAD several weeks before the flight. It was nice to have the larger seat on a redeye, actually managed 4 hours sleep.

Looks like I’m going to miss FO yet again this year. Any ideas on how I can make it?

I imagine FO is doable however KM is likely out of reach.

I did the least amount flying this year than I've done in years. I'll end up at about 155K MQMs, $16K MQDs, and about 70 segments. I typically average 100 segments/year...mostly all direct flights.

I envy those who can fly direct. Unfortunately, based out of HSV/BHM, it adds two micro-segments (under 30 minutes) for every trip. That “artificially” inflates my MQS considerably. I’ll finish with right at 100 MQS, but I really only have ~20-25 trips.

It’s been a good year, Delta! Last trip of the year today, but it’s on AF on a V fare, so won’t pad my bottom line too much more.
