This is the message I sent to Delta Complaint link on their website: You have GOT to be kidding!!!! 100,000 miles to fly from ATL to LAX???
450,000 miles to fly from ATL to GIG!!! I suppose next year or so, it will be half a million miles to go to Los Angeles! This program is becoming a JOKE! And don't give me "peak travel periods" bull crap!
I checked throughout the year, using miles have increased 200% or more from the previous year! Delta really knows how to *** off their customer base; how many complaints have you received about these ridicules rate increases? When I first started this program, miles rates were REASONABLE, but now it is a complete consumer ripoff! Think of it this way: If you were to buy miles from Delta; 16,000 miles cost $560!
450,000/16000=28.125x$560=$15,750 to fly (COACH) from Atlanta to Rio, Brazil! DOES THAT SOUND LIKE A GOOD DEAL???
NO, its a consumer ripoff!! YES, I'm pissed about it!
