Kiss my Big Booty Delta

Thanks a whole bunch for screwing your best customer. No more upgrades at time of purchase for any fare under "M"???? Well tell me exactly why I just won't buy a FC ticket non stop instead of connecting with you losers? It would only cost a little less, and earn more perks. And thanks, also for making the earning of upgrade points at a pace where I can only earn enough to upgrade 25% of my flights... EVEN if I pay the stupid "M" fare. For a 200+ segment guy like myself... I say KISS MY BOOTY, DELTA!

I would really love to join you. However, living in Cincinnati, we are held hostage by DL!

Hostage?? Only if you're a slave to non-stop flights. Otherwise, you're better off connecting on another carrier in a "fortress hub"... Besides, you have a great lowfare airport 90 minutes to the Southwest (pun!)!

Amendment,
KISS MY BOOTY (as of jan 1 2004)


Turns out I have a year grace period. Perhaps the LCC folly will turn over management before then and they will restore my benefits...

My, my. What an ego.... how much arrogance can one man have, even if he smells of day old smoke?

Delta has screwed their best customers!

Who the Hell do you think supported the leisure flyers all the years?

Who the Hell created this situation by getting greedy and charging us a fortune so that Ma and Pa Kettle could get off the farm once a year or 2 and visit the big city?

It started several years ago and keeps getting worse. Can't wait to see when the other shoe drops.

We have to make a lot of noise, write a lot of letters and change our flying habits to get Dr Evils attention.

It kinda worked with USAir. Maybe we can cause a retraction with DL.

Well, it's now a good time to shop for a new Airline. I'm sure that most will match status, especially since they are all desperate for customers. What really pisses me off is how they spin the "L" upgrade at the gate. With the constantly diminishing inventory, what are the chances of a LUser upgrade at the gate? Who are they kidding, does Uncle Leo think we are that Stupid??

Goodbye Delta..
Hello Jet Blue.

Jimpop... want to compare money spent on Delta? I would be stunned if I'm not one of the top 1% in individual spending. My annual airfare bill is six figures. But, then again, I did graduate from Norcross High... so the bad education thing might be causing the visions of grandure.

On another note, now is the time to buy Platinum segment upgrades on AA. They are going up on Jan 16th from $31.25 for 8-32 to $40-$50 each no matter what quantity. Oh, they also spinned this as a new benefit. I suspect that there are about two or three idiots that run ALL the so called major airlines.

Hmmmmm.... Given the technological advances of the past decades, if you pay six figures per year in airfare... Get my drift?

I for one completely understand that it isn't size that matters.

Oh Lord, my kids are in the new Norcross High right now. Are you what I have to look forward to?
