For what it''s worth,
I just received an email from Delta describing changes to the Skymiles Program effective January 1. They will no longer count segments toward the attainment of Medallion levels. The formula is more revenue based.
For someone like me who takes short flights I think it stinks, but I may be in the minority. Although it does reward high fare passengers, it does give 100% on some discount fares as well. I used to make it on segments, so I remain dubious. Here''s the link for any who are interested.
Unfortunately I think this is just the beginning.
