    DL's new system is to award MQDs on partners based on a distance formula.

    This makes the system even more complex: some tix get actual dollars others get a complex mile to dollar ratio.

    Why not use use MQMs?

    AA's EQM and EQP system, while more complex than the pre-MQD era at DL is much simpler (you qualify for elite by either EQMs or EQPs, whichever are higher, and not both) and at this point AA should sit back and watch DL and UA FF programs continue their implosion.
