OK, it isn’t really that sad, but March 1 is the day those of us who are losing status in a favorite frequent flyer program descend to dirt status.  Dirt status is no fun, and does not come with complimentary space-available upgrades.  Dirt status comes with Zone 96 stamped on your boarding pass, and I do not like it.

Yes, I am now Delta Dirt, and I do not care for it.  But I will rise again!  Delta, if you read this and want to have a little sympathy on someone…. I can be reached at the “contact me” link to your right.
