Members Can Now Easily Upgrade Their Seat With Miles Using The Fly Delta App

In December, we announced that Members could upgrade their seat with miles on after they’ve purchased a ticket, and now they can do it on-the-go using the Fly Delta app.

Here’s how to upgrade with miles on a flight you’ve already booked:

  1. Find your reservation in My Trips at or the Fly Delta app (make sure you’ve downloaded the latest version of the Fly Delta app)*
  2. If an upgrade with miles is available for your flight, you’ll see a banner showing the price to upgrade
  3. Select the button next to the price in miles
  4. Click ‘Select Seats’ to be taken to the seat map and confirm your upgrade

Learn more about different ways to upgrade your next trip.

*Available to all Apple users in the App Store now. The newest version of the Fly Delta app will roll out to Android users in the Google Play store over the next 7 days and be available to all Android users by February 13, 2019.

With the kick-off of the 2019 Medallion Year, we’ve made some exciting changes to welcome kits:

  • Based on Member feedback about materials, Diamond Medallion bag tags will be made of a premium metal and luggage connector loops will be made out of a more durable rubber.
  • Members who reach Million Miler Status will now receive additional premium bag tags featuring your highest-achieved Million Miler level. With this change, Million Miler Status will no longer be included on Medallion bag tags.
  • We’ve gone digital! With your membership card at your fingertips 24/7 in the Fly Delta app, Diamond and Platinum welcome kits will no longer include a physical membership card. In addition to the Fly Delta app, you can also print a card from My Wallet at anytime.

And coming soon:

  • Members who reach Gold or Silver Medallion Status for the 2020 Medallion Year (earned between January 1, 2019 and December 31, 2019) will receive bag tags so you can show off your Medallion Status with pride.

When you re-qualify for your Medallion Tier, or reach a higher Tier, you can expect to receive a welcome kit in the mail within a few weeks, so make sure your delivery address is up to date now. To make changes to your mailing address, visit My Profile.

These bag tags help celebrate just how far you’ve come. We’ll keep doing everything possible so that you experience the Medallion difference every time you travel.

Through January 31, 2020, Medallion Members can save up to $300 per booking with Delta Vacations, even when booking with miles. Delta Vacations allows you to customize your vacation with endless choices of destinations, accommodations, activities and more.
