Complimentary Upgrades are not available on flights that are serviced with our BusinessElite® product including travel between New York/JFK and Los Angeles, San Francisco or Seattle. Taxes (and if applicable, fees) for Award Travel are the responsibility of the passenger and must be paid at the time the ticket is booked.

Economy Comfort™ Seats

Economy Comfort seating is offered on Delta's two-cabin aircraft, subject to availability. Features differ slightly according to flight type/destination. Domestic flights offer up to 3 more inches of legroom and international flights offer up to 4 more inches than the standard coach seat. Seats purchased while onboard are not valid for Medallion® or partner airline discounts regardless of status or fare class. Complimentary beer, wine, and spirits are offered in Economy Comfort on international flights operating between the US to/ from Canada, Mexico, Central America, the Caribbean and flights operating between JFK to/ from LAX, SEA, and SFO; in addition, complimentary beer, wine, and spirits are offered in the Economy cabin on all long-haul international flights. Increased recline is offered on most long-haul international flights and flights operating between JFK to/ from LAX, SEA, and SFO. Economy Comfort fees are charged per customer per segment. Except with respect to Basic Economy fares, SkyMiles Medallions and select partner airline elite members and up to eight companions traveling on the same reservation may be eligible for discounts on Economy Comfort seating fees based on their status at time of purchase. See Economy Comfort Comparison Chart for details. SkyMiles members can earn Medallion Qualification Dollars (MQDs) for purchases of Economy Comfort seats only when purchased through a Delta channel including delta.com, Fly Delta mobile app, Delta Reservations, Delta kiosks and select Delta airport locations. If an Economy Comfort seat is purchased at the airport in Amsterdam (AMS), Mumbai (BOM) or Paris (CDG) for a Delta operated flight, the member will not earn MQDs. MQDs will not be awarded for complimentary access to Economy Comfort. MQDs may only be earned by the member traveling whose name and SkyMiles number is included in the reservation. We reserve the right to assign or reassign an Economy Comfort seat at any time, even after boarding of the aircraft, for operational, safety or security reasons. The final decision resides with the ground staff and operating crew on the day of the flight. Refunds will be issued to any reassigned customer if the customer is not moved to a comparable or better seat and no MQDs will be awarded. If a customer voluntarily changes his/her flight or seat selection once purchased, a refund for the original seat purchase will not be provided and no MQDs will be awarded.

Complimentary Preferred Seats

Preferred Seating is offered on Delta and Delta Connection® flights, subject to availability. Except with respect to Basic Economy fares, Preferred Seats are complimentary for Medallion® members, SkyTeam® Elite and SkyTeam® Elite Plus members, Virgin Atlantic Flying Club Gold members, and Alaska Airlines MVP® and MVP® Gold members and their companions when they are booked in the same reservation. Preferred seats are also complimentary for customers that have purchased full Y, B and M fares. Preferred Seats in select markets will be available for sale 24 hours prior to departure through the check-in window to non-Preferred Seat eligible customers. Fees will be charged per customer per segment. SkyMiles members can earn Medallion Qualification Dollars (MQDs) for purchases of Preferred Seats only when purchased through a Delta channel including delta.com, Fly Delta mobile app, Delta Reservations, Delta kiosks and select Delta airport locations. If a Preferred Seat is purchased at the airport in Amsterdam (AMS), Mumbai (BOM) or Paris (CDG) for a Delta operated flight, the member will not earn MQDs. MQDs will not be awarded for complimentary access to Preferred Seats. MQDs may only be earned by the member traveling whose name and SkyMiles number is included in the reservation. Customers seated in the bulkhead row may be reassigned to accommodate passengers with disabilities. We reserve the right to assign or reassign a Preferred Seat at any time, even after boarding of the aircraft, for operational, safety or security reasons; the final decision resides with ground staff and operating crew on the day of the flight.  Refunds will be issued to any reassigned customer if the customer is not moved to a comparable or better seat and no MQDs will be awarded. If a customer voluntarily changes his/her flight or seat selection once purchased, a refund for the original seat purchase will not be provided and no MQDs will be awarded.

Fee Waivers

Baggage fee waiver applies to up to 9 people traveling in the eligible member's reservation. Excess, oversize, and/or overweight baggage fees may apply.

Mileage and Accrual

In order to receive the Medallion mileage bonus, a member must earn Medallion status through either the required Medallion Qualification Miles (MQMs) or Medallion Qualification Segments (MQSs) and Medallion Qualification Dollars (MQDs - U.S.-based members only).  Members who receive complimentary Medallion status waive the Medallion mileage bonus for the complimentary Medallion year (excludes members who receive complimentary annual Medallion status through the Million Miler™ program or Choice Benefits gifted Medallion status).

Rollover Medallion Qualification Miles

Rollover benefit means Medallion Qualification Miles earned in 2014 above a member’s earned Medallion threshold level will roll over to 2015 and count toward 2016 Medallion status qualification. Members who receive complimentary or gifted Medallion status are ineligible for rollover MQMs unless they earn more MQMs and Medallion Qualification Dollars (MQDs - U.S.-based members only) than the gifted status requirement. For example, if a member is gifted Silver Medallion status in 2014 and also earns 30,000 MQMs and $3,000 MQDs in 2014, s/he will be able to roll over 5,000 MQMs since the Silver Medallion requirement is 25,000 MQMs and $2,500 MQDs.
