Delta and Northwest management (I’m blaming this on Delta for the most part, since changes seem to be coming from them) are doing a lot to piss off their loyal customers, as evident in the Delta and Northwest forums on FlyerTalk.
As if reducing the Platinum and Silver bonuses and charging Platinums for award redeposit fees wasn’t bad enough, they’re probably making the dumbest change I’ve ever heard of. Starting March 1, Y and B fares (typically full fare) will only earn 100% EQM’s, as opposed to 150%. What moron made that decision? While I’ve never bought a full fare ticket in my life, I’m all for high revenue passengers getting more EQM’s. It’s only logical.
Gotta love how Delta throws miles at people for everything except flying….
