Now I’m not a big follower of either US or DL, but it doesn’t take an expert to figure out what Delta is trying to do. I’m not sure if they’re having some kind of a back and forth battle, but it’ll be interesting to see if US offers some bonus miles to ATL and CVG. Don’t get me wrong, bonus miles are always a good thing for us, but I really wonder if they make sense for the airlines, at least in cases like this…
