SkyMiles is constantly listening to Member feedback and making changes to improve our program. Important updates will be announced here.

January 7, 2019

Complimentary Upgrades to Delta Comfort+® on Specific Routes Must be Selected in the Seat Map

Due to technology updates that will temporarily impact specific Delta aircraft, Medallion Members that book a Main Cabin ticket on the below routes will need to manually select their Complimentary Upgrade to Delta Comfort+ (if available) in the seat map during their normal clearance window.

Medallion Members flying on routes to or from:

  • ATL-NRT, MSP-HND, ATL-CDG & MSP-CDG beginning March 1, 2019
  • MSP-ICN beginning April 1, 2019
  • LAX-SYD beginning April 5, 2019
  • CDG-LAX beginning May 24, 2019 (LAX-CDG beginning May 25, 2019)

This temporary change will not impact Complimentary Upgrade availability; Complimentary Upgrades to Delta Comfort+ for these flights are expected to once again be automatic in 2019.

2018 Rollover Medallion Qualification Miles (MQMs) will begin posting on January 7, 2019. Please allow 1-2 weeks for Rollover MQMs to post to your SkyMiles account. Learn more about Rollover MQMs.

Starting today, Medallion Members who have already purchased a ticket on a Delta-marketed, Aeromexico-operated flight will be able to select their complimentary preferred seats on or in the Fly Delta app and no longer need to call Aeromexico to receive the seats for free. Preferred seats on Aeromexico include window or aisle main cabin seats closer to the front of the plane and all exit rows. Don’t forget, as a Medallion Member you are also eligible for Complimentary Upgrades on Aeromexico-operated flights, giving you different ways to enjoy comfortable seats during your trips with Aeromexico.

Reminder: a Delta-marketed, Aeromexico-operated flight means that the flight will have “DL” as the airline code in the flight number (for example DL2368) but will be on an Aeromexico aircraft.
