No more Million Miler status?

I finally saw the change in my SM status occur on delta.com. I fell from platinum to gold. I also noted that my Million Miler status, which used to appear under my name also disappeared. Has this happened to anybody/everybody else? Is MM going the way of the Flying Colonel?

As an aside, I checked in online today and my boarding pass still reflected my old Platinum status. It was good for one free last trip to the Crown Room!

I just double-checked and my account still lists Million Miler™, which BTW I note DL has trademarked, Platinum Medallion, Flying Colonel and Crown Room Club Member. So no changes in my account.

My Million Miler status still shows, but not my Crown Room Club member. My membership expires in 2006, according to my card. Strange.

Did those who dropped status change over on March 1?

I hit MM over two years ago.

Just as an epilog: On one of my flights this evening, I asked the FA to check the manifest to see what status it showed for me. It was accurate and showed both my GM and MM status. I guess the problem is with whatever feeds the website.

I wonder if the MM status is missing on your printed boarding pass, or under your account history on delta.com?

Mine still shows on-line, and it is indeed trade-marked!

There's definitely an issue then. That was when DL still awarded lifetime status. Under the current program, using the "annual silver medallion status", it has been my position all along that DL will grant that status for a year-or-so, or until they feel like it. Anyone who flies a million-butt-in-seat miles deserves the "lifetime" moniker.

As long as the program remains relatively similar as it is now (Silver/Gold/Plat), Delta's not going to stop comping Silver to Million Milers.

As of the end of 2002 when the major changes were announced, the verbiage says you receive "annual silver medallion status" for achieving MM status. It says nothing about a promise to continue to do it for life, nor a promise to continue it for more than one year. Unfortunately, based on other actions by Delta, I can't agree with your statement since it is not substantiated with fact.
