    Thanks for posting this mc.

    DL flyers with their Amex branded card will be interested in this info from the article:

    American’s Express’ 2010 annual report reveals just how significant is its business with airlines. For instance, the company revealed that its co-branded Delta SkyMiles credit card accounted for about 5 per cent of its billed business of USD 713.3 billion worldwide. “That’s more than USD 35 billion of actual Amex card activity…which happens to exceed the annual revenue of the airline,” said American Express.

    It was my belief that AMEX is what has kept Delta in business for all these years.

    The author interviews Randy, but gets a few of the details wrong:
