We need to let Delta know we are their loyal customers. Not only those with more cash!
Can Delta at least make this decision a little more equitable?
Can we have lower mileage awards, if you are devaluaing our Skymiles?
Some notes and information:
•Do you want Delta to cater only to those who can afford to buy First Class or Business tickets?
•Do you want your Frequent Flyer miles to be worthless?
•Do you want to accrue less for higher priced tickets?
Then read and watch the attached video and PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION.
From the Huffington Post:
•The move by an airline the size of Delta, with its international routes and important corporate customers, adds to a more fundamental trend in air travel — luring big-bucks travelers with better seats, fancier meals in first class, and VIP treatment at the airport.
•"If you're a corporate traveler, the IBM guy, this is good for you," Randy Petersen, editor of InsideFlyer magazine, which tracks the airline-loyalty business, said of Delta's move. "The infrequent traveler clearly is the loser here. Frequent-flier programs are no longer for them at all."
•If United and American follow Delta's lead, "there's not much a consumer can do," Petersen said. "Where are you going to go?"
From the Guardian:
•“The introduction of a new model for earning miles will increase rewards for those who spend more as well as differentiate the SkyMiles Frequent flyer program for our premium traveler.”
•By “premium traveler”, Robertson is referring to those who are willing to pay more – for both short- and long-distance trips – by purchasing business or first-class tickets.
