    This might kill me from SkyBonus, Delta loyalists but a very small company. A shame, I've enjoyed participating in it. Guess I'll have to burn all my points this year.

    My understand that SkyBonus Elite is a "Higher" tier as opposed to SkyBonus.

    However, 5 unique employees travel within a year is also required of the SkyBonus ("Basic") starting from 2016. The auto de-enrolment and points forfeit does sounds harsh.

    Some of the targeted "small businesses" may not have five employees or five that get W-2 forms.

    I could see this aspect changing.

    Yes indeed. A lot of SMEs starts off small or may be small but that does not makes them bad business.
    A lot of these SMEs are small in size but big on revenues and "snubbing" them just pushes them to look for other business "partners" where travel is concerned.

    As I wrote on TOBB, they are sticking to the announced program at this point. My contact did note that they are receiving a lot of negative comments.
