Will Delta Follow United's FF Program

I found the following statement in a Joe Brancatelli article at Biztravel. Comments?


"And speaking of United's frequent-flyer program, the airline has been forced to lower its requirements for 2001 elite status. Premier status for 2001 is available for 21,000 miles or 27 segments (instead of 25,000 miles or 30 segments); Premier Executive status for 42,000 miles or 54 segments (instead of 50,000 miles or 60 segments); and 1K Status for 84,000 miles or 90 segments."
(instead of 100,000 miles or 100 segments).

I doubt it, besides, check out the UA board, not only will new 1K's not get SWU's if they qualify this way, but UA is now possible making the three lowest fare classes not upgradable.
