This could inflate # of elites but that will probs happen either way if they just do a blanket extension

Delta extended. They will all follow... and go bankrupt. All this is a moot point

Eh even through bankruptcy the statuses will still be there. When continental and united merged both programs kept status so I really don’t think this is moot, more so wishful thinking bc I was 1/3 of the way to 1k in 2.5 months with the new program

United is extending status through 2021

Looks like I got my wish. Instant platinum and 3k away from 1k noice
