That's still about $200/hour for a flight when you're probably mostly sleeping. I'd rather have the money.

Sure, that's a great solution, but most people have no idea that buying a ticket through Delta makes you a second-class citizen! I certainly didn't know -- and still wouldn't know if not for this...

I agree with rylan. No matter how high you are on Delta's "HVC" hierarchy, someone else is always higher (except for Delta's version of Tom Stuker, United's 20-million-mile man). If you want Delta to...

Yes, I basically agree, but airlines could limit the "combining" of credits to people living at the same address. They do have ways to curb abuses.
