Consider this fact: DL has this double/triple Medallion Miles promotion between Apr - Jun. Tickets must be purchased after Mar 23, I am told.
Consider this too: I am based near SFO. Despite SFO being a United hub and the schedule/cost choices that UA has to offer, I jump through hoops to bring my business to DL/NW (because I earned my first ever 'status' with them). I have chosen them for almost every one of my flights, in excess of 100K the past 2 years, and well on course this year too. My peeve is that had I known of this promotion, I would have booked my tickets within the dates that they're running this promotion. I am flying them from SFO-NRT tomorrow, which is within the dates for the promotion, but bought the ticket on Mar 20, which is outside the range.
I am quite willing to let this go, considering that they have strict policies and procedures.
I am also wondering if they might consider cutting me some slack considering my terrific loyalty towards them.
What is your opinion? Thanks!
