  1. Sadly, Delta will read this article and say, “Boy, we need to get that revenue based model up and running quickly so squash this bad publicity.”

    That how clueless this airline is even though they continue to be my airline of choice largely as a route captive. (I will jump to United and put up with ORD transiting (I LOVE MSP) it they make the change.)

  2. Frequent flyers generally don’t like the mainstream media picking up on the topics discussed on flyertalk and milepoint, but Delta’s insanely bad availability is an issue that would benefit from greater publicity. They really need to be shamed into offering more plausible award inventory. It’s obvious that nothing else will work.
