Another Knife in the back from Delta

I don't really need a lot of convincing to move my air miles earning to another airline. In fact I am already doing just that. I have switched my primary earning over to United. Today Delta made a move that really seals the deal for me: No cancels or changes to award tickets within 72 hours of departure.

This normally is not a big deal for me. I check back often to get the award I want for the number of miles that I want. The problem is with the already dismal low level award availability most of the "low" seats come out within 72 hours of the flight. If plans were to change I am out of luck. Either stick with what I have or I lose the miles.

Just another way Delta has devalued their miles. They still have some uses (which is good since I am forced to fly them almost all the time) but this restricts my options a good bit. I sent in a complaint letting them know how I feel about it and also made my opinion public on Twitter. Greed wins and the frequent flyer loses...
