Delta might have worst looking membership cards among Skyteam

So, as I was exploring Skyteam website, in hopes of maybe finding some info about Continental joining the team, I found the list of members and the pictures of their frequent flyer program cards.

In my opinion, DL has the most boring and plain cards among the team. What do you all think?

Check it out for yourself.

Does it matter? Do you ever take it out of your wallet?

Are you trying to tell me at the Song ticket counter you don't whip out your Platinum Medallion card and say, "DO YOU KNOW WHO I AM??? I AM A PM!!!!!"

Yeah, the DL medalion card is pretty boring and ugly. The Korean Air ones are just boring.

Ok, now I've had enough - How do I comp to American? I can put up with:
  • MQMs
  • Elimination of PMUs
  • Reduction in upgrades
  • No food on flights
But an ugly SkyMiles card?! No way! This is an outrage! Leo, Vicky and the rest of the gang have lost me forever

Just kidding. To be honest, I really don't care WHAT my SkyMiles card looks like, as long as the kiosks can read it. Actually, I just wish Delta could combine our SkyMiles cards with our Delta American Express cards so that we had one less piece of plastic to lug around.

I'm just surprised that everyone here hasn't taken those ugly membership cards and gotten a free lifetime Elite match from AirTran before they make it annual instead of lifetime.

On our Song flights last weekend my wife and I were listed on the passenger manifest with other PM's, GM's and FO's. Trust me, we didn't receive any special attention from the FA's.

Card? What card? It is now September and I still haven't seen my new card for 2003. Not that it matters, but it would have been fun to see what you guys are talking about. Or is it so that the MM card now doubles for SM?
