Some DL loyalists/apologists/corporate stooges over at FT are making noises. Fearing the nuclear backlash, knowing how this will be perceived. But whatever, the Jeffster is in the driving seat. He's proving harder to stop than most DL loyalists expected. No doubt the FUBAR IT architecture is almost in place. It's happening. And soon. Watch for sneak previews during redemption attempts as the interns patch the wrong software pipe in place, as usual....oh, but wait, we've already seen it... that's not $6350 from PHL to FCO, not all of which is in J, no, that's 635k DL SM! Muaahaha! Except, there won't be any more 100k BE awards available. One thing I do predict: this new IT architecture will function more effectively than the current award tool or any other customer-related function currently provided by DL.COM I think 1st Jan 2014 is perfect...MQD in place, now time to whack almost all remaining benefits.... !ay caramba! Es mejor en su clase indeed.
