Complain about it. If you are lucky you might get beaten up and get upgraded to try to keep you quiet 😉

And you are # ___?

Was #1 of 84 the other day. Didn't get it. Hehe.

Been 1K for about 12 years now & so have lifetime status. Used to get upgrades some 90% of the time, probably down to about 10-15% now. Route rationalization & airline mergers killed it. At least our FT program now allows me business class >3 hours, though I'm fairly careful how I use that.

Yeah a fast way to get urself on a bad list is to buy F tickets even if expense policy permits it

How do you get on the bad list when it is firm policy? Had no problems here in the last few years..

Lost sense of maximizing points/mileage value for int’l flights. Why is Detla redeeming so much more for some routes than Chase UR and even other partner airlines? E.g. non-stop economy btw Detroit-Seoul // Delta redeeming 160k on its own route while Chase UR 123k & Korean Air 80k for same route (code share)... I get it all depends on timing but still weird directly using Delta Skymiles on its own Delta route is more expensive than going through other methods....
