Beginning this January, boarding groups for Delta flights worldwide will be renamed to reflect the fare purchased. Medallion Members will continue to board in the same groups they do today and will see the new group names reflected on their boarding passes and at the gate.

  • Diamond Medallion Members will receive highest priority boarding in Delta One®/ First Class & Diamond, formerly "Premium"
  • Platinum and Gold Medallion Members will still board with Sky Priority®
  • Silver Medallion Members will still board with Priority Boarding in Main Cabin 1, formerly Zone 1

Delta Comfort+® will now be its own boarding group and will board before Sky Priority. This means that Platinum and Gold Medallion Members seated in the Main Cabin will now board after Delta Comfort+. Medallion Members will continue to receive Unlimited Complimentary Upgrades as a benefit, so if they purchase a Main Cabin fare and are upgraded to different cabin or purchase an upgraded fare, they will board accordingly with that zone.

It’s here! You can now use miles to upgrade your seat at after booking a flight, making it easier than ever before to treat yourself to that upgrade without having to call Reservations. 

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

  1. Find your reservation in My Trips at
  2. If an upgrade with miles is available for your flight, you’ll see a banner above your flight information 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 

Be on the lookout for more new ways to use your miles coming in 2019, including being able to upgrade your seat with miles in the Fly Delta app.
