In the best news to hit frequent flyers in years, Delta has eliminated many of the harsh rules it implemented 2 years ago. Specifically:
–Cheap fares now qualify for 100% Medallion Qualification Miles (hear that, Continental?)
–Change fees are now reduced from $100 to $50.
–Platinum status now only requires 75,000 miles (instead of 100,000).
On the negative side, short flights now only earn 500 points instead of 750. But that’s a small price to pay for the other changes. Well done.
