    My first Delta purchase since the 2011 program started, with its notorious typo about 150% MQM bonus for all fares, and was delighted to see the 5172 MQMs I usually get for JFK-SFO turn into 7758!

    "Medallion Qualification Miles are subject to change." I bet!

    This is just as much of an error as what went out in the 2011 qualification packets.

    samonnyc, did this post to your SM account at 150% for those discounted fares?

    I am SURE that your account may now be 'reviewed' good to post details of an IT screwup on a public forum :rolleyes:

    This was on my booking confirmation for a trip in July. I'm sure it's an IT glitch and won't be honored. Just thought it was funny coming so soon after the typo in the Medallion packets went out.

    To bad, I'm looking to boost my MQMs to get to gold ASAP. My "normal" flight route isn't so bad to get upgrades once Gold. Sadly, it will be into May before that upgrade comes through, without a bonus that is.

    This is just the long-standing bug in showing the class of service bonus on discounted fares during the booking process.

    I need to work on making my sarcasm more obvious. Thought I was an adept at this point in life.

    You'd better call the airline, real or not, and have them explain it to you ;-)

    Is the airline real? They have done a good job of making up their mistakes to us, IME. The 2010 Diamond/Platinum December requalification issues is a case in point.

    Probably a carry-over from the bonus miles and bouble MQMs from the four city groups. :(
