Delta Airlines recently made significant changes to its lounge-access rules and loyalty program, sparking humorous and critical reactions on Black Twitter. The changes include limiting lounge access for certain American Express Platinum cardholders and basing loyalty points on dollars spent with the airline instead of miles flown.
