Mike Huckabee explains this status to the New York Times.
Are you prepared to deal with Delta reservations agents, whom you describe in your book as robotic and unreasonable? You’d think they’d be nice to ex-governors.
What does give me cachet is not that, but the number of miles that I fly a year. There’s a new designation that Delta is cranking up in January called Diamond, and it’s for people who are so far above the Platinum status that they are going to put in a unique category. I qualify for that!
I’m glad you’ve achieved supreme status in at least one realm of life.
You know, if you can’t be president, by gosh, get to the highest level of frequent-flier rewards.
Of course, if Huckabee doesn’t like dealing with Delta res agents, I have some outsourced call center agents from United that he could talk to, to see whether he’d like a Hertz rental car or if they’ve met his travel needs…
There is, it seems, something about Republican governors and Delta. Mark Sanford cashed in Delta miles for his fateful trip to Buenos Aires. More likely, perhaps, is just folks in the South being forced to connect through Atlanta wherever they’re going..
