Factually Incorrect Article

    You wrote a factually incorrect article that needs to be revised.

    https://onemileatatime.boardingarea.com/2018/03/09/delta-million-miler-status/#comment-3895353

    In this article, you claim that someone can earn Million Miler status on Delta by applying for a Delta Platinum AMEX credit card. Wrong. Million Miler miles only reflect actual miles flown through the air. I called and confirmed it with Delta today, April 14, 2018.

    So you're misleading readers in a big way and it needs to be fixed.

    Hi Tom,

    Thanks for the comment, but the article is correct. If you read the details, Ben notes that the Medallion Qualifying Miles offered by the Delta Platinum card (which are different than the general Redeemable Miles earned by spending on the card) are what would push his dad over the threshold.

    MQMs do indeed count towards Million Miler (and all other Delta status).
