I don't

I don't. I have the DL branded plat which will give me 30.000 MQMs and about 150,000 regular miles this year (I use it for expenses that my employer reimburses ;-)).

MM help

Without providing a new tier, I think that having MQMs over the 75K threshold count double toward Million Miler status would be a nice benefit that would keep Plats flying delta.

AF likes toddlers FAR better than Delta does

Apart from the stroller issue (I have a 1 year old and a two year old), which might not be related to AF but more likely ADP (CDG). AF is one of the greatest company to flight with infants (along...

Lightbulb I like CDG!!!

I'm sorry to disagree but I like CDG!

I usually have less than one hour connection and never missed a single flight in 5 years at 3 roundtrip ATL-CDG-MRS a year. Neither did my wife nor my kids.
