A Mildly Amusing Email from Delta

I know that Delta Skymiles gets a bad rap because people think it’s nearly impossible to use miles for tickets on Delta (pretty much true, at least at the lowest redemption level). I received an email today from Delta Skymiles that, perhaps, suggests they know this:

Subject Line: You’ve Earned Enough Miles for an Award Ticket

Email: You’ve earned those miles, why not use them? Your current mileage balance is: 378196.

Even they know it’s going to require about 378,000 miles before I can redeem for a free ticket.
