Delta Rewards My Loyalty, Again


I don’t enjoy flying, and not because I’m afraid to fly.  It’s just that with the hassles of going through security lines, checking bags, fees for everything it seems except using the restrooms on planes (please don’t get any ideas, airlines), rushing to make connections, yadda yadda yadda, I keep telling everyone we need to spend more our tax dollars on truly high-speed rail for any trip under a 1,000 miles.

That’s why I was delighted to get this email below from Delta this morning. After barely missing my Silver Medallion status last year, and because of flight cancellations, no less, with my current trip to Michigan, I just made it for next year, AND it is effective immediately.  Thanks, Delta!
