I wonder if Internet personality Deviant Ollam will have some trouble entering Delta Sky Clubs from now on.
The Delta Diamond Medallion recorded a video inside the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA) Central Terminal’s Sky Club detailing his disgust with Delta’s SkyMiles 2025 changes. He also announces which airline has the first crack at his loyalty.
At one point, he references Delta Air Lines CEO Ed Bastian’s comments that Delta will modify some of the changes — but nothing has yet been announced. He likens that move to an abusive relationship. (By the way, this is hardly the first time I’ve heard someone either use the term “abusive relationship” or intimate it when discussing their loyalty to Delta.)
As anyone knows in any…relationship, if you had an intimate partner who, like, raised their hand in anger and even if they didn’t hit you and even if later you start packing your stuff to leave, and they’re, like, “Oh, baby, you know I would never have actually hit you! I wasn’t going to do it! It’s just been a real hard time at work…”
The time to leave is then. You don’t you don’t wait for them to actually hit you in the face. All you need is the sign that they wanted to.
And that’s what all of us at Delta in the customer base have determined. You know, like, just because they say “Oh we’re…going to delay those implementations and we’re going to maybe moderate it down,” that just means they’re going to nickel and dime us for the next however many years until they go where they want to go. And where they want to go is to make their tiers of status unavailable to anyone but the uber-rich.
He also shows how he stood outside and inside an Alaska Lounge, holding a sign detailing how he’s upset with Delta — and wants customer input about Alaska.
Finally, he name-checks several Delta employees he’s going to miss seeing on a regular basis.
The video is embedded below and here’s a link to it. Be aware there is some language some viewers may find NSFW.
