Same-day Travel Benefits


Same-day Confirmed

As a Diamond, Platinum or Gold MedallionĀ® member, you may request a same-day change to your itinerary and be confirmed at no extra charge, except when flying on a Basic Economy (E) fare. To make a same-day confirmed change when booked in Main Cabin your original fare class must be available. To make a same-day confirmed change when booked in our premium cabins -- including Delta Oneā„¢, First and Business Class -- you may make a same-day confirmed change as long as a seat is available in the premium cabin. Your request can be made up to 24 hours prior to your original departure time. Your new departure time must still be on the same day as your originally scheduled departure.

Same-day Standby

If you are unable to secure flights with the same-day confirmed option, we offer the option to stand by free of charge to Diamond, Platinum and Gold Medallion members at the kiosk, ticket counter or through reservations, except when flying on a Basic Economy (E) fare. Silver Medallion members have the option to stand by for an earlier flight, and will be charged $50 if confirmed.

See Same-day Travel Changes for more information and complete terms and conditions.

Basic Economy (E) fares are not eligible to make same-day confirmed or same-day standby travel changes, regardless of Medallion or other elite status.
