Effective September 28, 2017, Diamond and Platinum Medallion Members can use their Global and Regional Upgrade Certificates for access to Aeromexico Clase Premieropens in a new window on any Delta-marketed, Aeromexico-operated1 flight. With Clase Premier, Medallion Members will receive:
Global Upgrade Certificates can be used on Delta-marketed, Aeromexico-operated flights when the Diamond Medallion Member also has an international Delta flight included in the same itinerary. Regional Upgrade Certificates can be used on Aeromexico flights traveling between the United States and Mexico, or for any Delta-marketed, Aeromexico-operated short-haul2 flight. Upgrade Certificates are eligible for all fare classes, except for Basic Economy (E-class).
Medallion Members must contact Delta reservations directly to apply Upgrade Certificates, and upgrades will be subject to availability on Aeromexico. Miles will be earned based on the price of the original ticket before an upgrade is applied.
Delta and Aeromexico share the largest combined network between the United States and Mexico, with more than 1,000 weekly trans-border non-stops.

We are always looking for ways to improve the Medallion experience by listening to your feedback. Because we want to ensure our most well-traveled Members can take full advantage of all the benefits of Diamond Medallion Status, a change is being made to how Members qualify for 2019 Diamond Medallion Status.
Starting January 1, 2018, the Medallion Qualification Dollar (MQD) Waiver for Diamond Medallion Status is increasing. The MQD Waiver for Diamond Medallion Status is currently earned by spending $25,000 in eligible purchases in a calendar year on a SkyMiles Credit Card from American Express. It is being adjusted to $250,000 in a calendar year.
This qualification change will allow us to deliver on expectations for Diamond Medallion Status so Members can maximize elite benefits like Complimentary Upgrades and Delta Sky Club® access. This update will not change how Members earn 2018 Diamond Medallion Status.
We understand this is a significant increase, but keep in mind that the MQD Waiver to qualify for all of the best-in-class benefits of Platinum, Gold and Silver Medallion Status will remain at $25,000 and you can still reach Diamond Medallion Status by earning 125,000 Medallion Qualification Miles (MQMs) or 140 Medallion Qualification Segments (MQSs) and $15,000 MQDs.

What is the MQD Waiver and how does it work today?
What cards are eligible for the MQD Waiver?
*Effective January 1, 2018, the Blue Delta SkyMiles Credit Card will no longer be eligible for the MQD Waiver. However, if you have another Delta SkyMiles Credit Card with the MQD Waiver benefit in addition to your Delta Blue SkyMiles Credit Card, Eligible Purchases made on the Blue Delta SkyMiles Credit Card will continue to count towards the MQD Waiver.
What purchases count toward the MQD Waiver?
Does this qualification change have an impact to my Card benefits?
If I’m a Platinum Medallion Member, and halfway through 2018 I have earned enough MQMs/MQSs for Diamond Medallion Status, but have not earned enough MQDs for Diamond Medallion Status and have not reached the $250,000 MQD Waiver for Diamond Medallion Status, what happens?
If I’m a new SkyMiles Member who has no previous Medallion Status, can I earn Diamond Medallion Status in 2018 through the current $25,000 MQD Waiver?
