And Here’s The Short Version of the Changes to Delta’s Skymiles Program

My brother received Delta’s email yesterday outlining the changes to the Skymiles program, then wrote to me and asked this question:

“What the hell does this mean?”

I know every travel blog has written about this already, but I thought my answer to him was succinct enough to reprint here for those of you who didn’t want to read thousands of words:

To get elite status on delta going forward u will need to spend a certain amount on tickets ($2,500/$5,000/$7,500/$12,500 for silver/gold/platinum/diamond) AND fly a certain amount. Previously there was no spend requirement. If you have their credit card and spend $25k a year on it, they’ll waive the minimum ticket spend requirement.

That’s pretty much it. Carry on.
