Frustration with Delta.com’s website : many

The trip has started off with fun and games.  We tried to check in this morning and received a cryptic “There’s something wrong, please don’t ask us why.” message received from both the website and the mobile app.

The booking is ticketed and we have all our advanced passenger information in that so this can only mean one thing.  The TSA does not like mileage runners.  I can see why a 20 hour flight to nowhere in particular might seem like a security risk but in this case we’re only burning dead dinosaurs to secure our places in the high society echelon known as top tier status whores.

Our mileage run is simply by some standard, complicated by others.  We expect to net approximately 14000 miles each.  We also get 12 more tier points but we don’t really care for those as we already ended up with more of those that we need.
