Mileage Upgrade Awards

Because Sometimes
You Need an Upgrade 


It's nice to treat yourself, from time to time. And Mileage Upgrade Awards allow you to do just that. Use miles to upgrade from Economy to First Class or BusinessElite®. A few extra miles go a long way when you want the comfort and amenities of flying in front.

MILEAGE UPGRADE AWARD RULES

You can use your miles for a one-class upgrade on most Delta-operated flights. Mileage Upgrade Awards do not apply on all fares. All Awards are subject to availability, and additional taxes and fees may apply. To check availabilty or book an upgrade, contact a SkyMiles representative or call the number on the back of your SkyMiles card. See Award Travel Rules & Conditions for details.
