One wonders how many people will look at the card and initially think the 68 million miles is how many miles the holder flew.

I managed to get a larger piece from N666US before it was recycled. I wonder how many credit cards could be made from it

A few - just using the outside skins without rivet holes. If you process any of the internal structural elements made out of aluminum, probably millions.

I just called the number on the back of my Reserve card and answered about 10 prompts and done. No live person, app or website required. Arriving to my billing address by 6/24.

Forgot to mention, got a referral from a FTer and was approved today for the Reserve card. Selected the 747 version.

Estimated date of arrival: 20 June 2022.

It's a .......ized version of the Google interview question about how many golf balls you can fit inside a 747.

It would have been amazing to get one directly printed from the skin but I get how the paint wouldn't react well to flattening. That said, if they recycle internal components too - then probably several million.

Another data point here, requested replacement card for new design yesterday, estimated delivery June 24th. Now the only question is what to do with it. Like many of us I'm sure, I mostly use this card for DL purchases so I very rarely swipe it. Fancy wallet candy I guess.

I already have a Delta Amex Platinum card.

If I applied for the Delta Reserve, would I qualify for the 100K miles intro offer?
