    Last week I SDC'd to an earlier flight on BOS-ATL eventually going to BDA. I was standby and got the last seat on the 6am departure, it was a middle seat. In the past when I have done this I often get a 500 mile post (non-MQM) on my account for having to sit in a middle seat in economy. This time no such post. Is this just a random occurrence or has this been discontinued.

    I thought they only gave the 500 mile bonus if your flight is on a Monday.

    You are correct.

    I sure miss NWA's policy of PM or higher got 1,000 miles every time they were not upgraded. DL was quick to chop that benefit!

  6. Recently, I received a 500-mile bonus from a sharp FA who noticed that I was a GM member sitting in a coach seat and whose entertainment system was malfunctioning.
     

  7. I agree - the good old days when Northworst (in comparison to Delta) actually cared.

    This was a nice thing about the NW program. I believe UA had this at one time as well.

  9. Aha, so that's what it is! I've noticed this mysterious bonus too.

    they really think 500 miles will make your day better by having a middle seat on a monday?!? bump it to at least 750 and give us at least 250 EVERY other day!

    Better yet, go back to the NW system that gave 1000 miles when a PE was not upgraded on a domestic flight with FC.

    That's crazy talk now! Easy to use miles, on a website that works? Such advanced technology exists?

    Heck yeah. And when it said you could book partners online, using your ill-gotten middle-seat bonus miles, well, gosh, so you could...
