Pleasing letter received from CO

Yesterday I got a nice letter from CO apologizing for the difficulties I had on last week's RDU trip. (flight left an hour late and I missed my connection at IAH)

Quote:

Did you complain, or was this automatic?

Pretty neat, either way. Would be great to have the understanding that they're committed to you being on-time, or an apology and compensation is in order.

I haven't received anything like this lately, but I haven't had a flight delayed for non-weather reasons in maybe a year or two (and I've flown almost a couple hundred segments in that time).

I wonder if it's just to Platinums, or Elites, or what the deal is.

No, I didn't complain at all. It was my homeward-bound trip and missing my IAH->AUS flight was no big deal since they run them pretty much hourly this time of year. It was an annoyance, but certainly not enough of one to have complained.
