We switched to WN from DL over two years ago and enjoyed the simple rewards program and efficiency of the flights. I liked the idea that we all had a shot at getting an A pass if we took the time to check in 24 hours in advance and didn't have the whole "elite" thing going on to put up with. Now, we'll be lucky to get a #59 or 60 since we fly less than 32 paid segments a year.
We have a flight coming up soon on WN and we'll see how it goes, but I've already applied for a new Amex Skymiles card and rejoined Delta's Crown Room Club. I'm figuring Delta has more non-stops (saves time), assigned seats so I don't have to play the get on the computer first game, real first class seats, comfortable lounges and we'll be able to use their FF system to fly international.
The changes to WN help the business traveller, but no one else. What happened to your egalitarian mantra?
Oh well. Changes happen and it looks like we're going back to flying Delta. Take care. It was fun while it lasted.
