You be able to enjoy your Medallion Status through Jan. 31, 2023, in addition to other extensions designed to give the airline’s most loyal customers more flexibility as travel resumes.
As Canada reopens its borders to fully vaccinated U.S. travelers for the first time in over a year Aug. 9, Delta is ready to welcome them back on board with more flight and seat choices.
You will need a total of 6 million miles to become Lifetime Diamond Medallion. If you’ve previously earned this level, your account has been updated automatically with no action needed from you.
The airline is offering Medallion Status Accelerators, it has confirmed the return of snack and beverage service, tickets and credits ill be extended, and middle seats will soon be bookable.
The new snack and beverage service will include coffee, tea and water plus sweet and savory snacks in all cabins on domestic flights and the debut of new products.
Delta has announced new quarantine-free flights from JFK airport in New York, to Milan in Italy. These flights to Malpensa airport will start on April 2, 2021, a day after it launches to Rome Fiumicino.
There’s no indication what might have caused these shutdowns, but we would have to assume it is related to some kind of abuse. These are only a couple of cases, so we do not know if this is a widespread issue. If you have Delta SkyMiles, take a look at your accounts and see if there’s anything unusual going on, of if you’re not able to log in.
Delta Air Lines will take a tougher stance on unruly flyers. The airline will permanently ban passengers who disrespect fellow customers or crew from now on.
This rule was introduced years ago as a way to curb speculative bookings. If you booked a flight using Delta SkyMiles, you would forfeit your miles if made changes or canceled your booking within 72 hours of the flight.
Delta Air Lines has already waived domestic change fees amid the coronavirus pandemic. Now the Atlanta-based airline has introduced a new policy that waives change fees on international flights as well, as it struggle to attract customers.
Delta is making it easier to plan and book your next trip by bringing detailed travel requirement information and a seamless connection to booking into a single easy-to-use tool on Delta.com.
During the COVID-19 pandemic we saw United Airlines make several devaluations to its MileagePlus program by increasing redemptions for partner awards. Now it’s Delta’s turn with a big devaluation of its SkyMiles program.
For a limited time, if you have status on Alaska Airlines, American Airlines, jetBlue, Southwest Airlines or United Airlines, you may be eligible to enroll in our elevated Status Match challenge between October 19 and October 31, 2020.
Delta is extending benefits for some Delta SkyMiles American Express Card Members, Delta Sky Club Memberships and more. SkyMiles Members can now enjoy more choice and control over their travel plans as Delta is again extending loyalty benefits and adding more flexibility.
Clubs in Chicago O’Hare (E Concourse), Denver, Miami, Nashville, Orlando, Phoenix and San Francisco will join Clubs that are already operating as they reopen throughout July, with additional Clubs reopening as travel increases over the coming months.
The airline will block the selection of middle seats and cap seating in every cabin. It was reported last month the airline would keep planes to no more than 60% full through at least July. To do so, Delta would add more flights to its schedule than demand would usually justify.
Delta Air Lines has made changes to boarding procedures to encourage social distancing for customers. Delta’s new system-wide boarding procedure lets passengers in the back rows of the aircraft to board first.
Delta SkyMiles Medallion Members will enjoy the same loyalty benefits throughout 2021 as they have in 2020. The 12-month Status extension is part of Delta’s work to offer greater flexibility as coronavirus impacts travel plans.
