  • Delta Diamond and Platinum Medallion Members traveling in the Main Cabin of the Virgin Atlantic-operated flight between Manchester (MAN) and Atlanta (ATL) will no longer receive complimentary access to the Escape Lounge at Manchester Airport. Customers traveling in the Upper Class cabin will continue to receive complimentary access to the Escape Lounge.

Effective December 20, 2017, SkyMiles Members can use miles to upgrade from a purchased ticket on Delta-marketed flights operated by Aeromexico for travel between the United States and Mexico through Mileage Upgrade Awards. Members can upgrade from a purchased Delta-marketed/Aeromexico-operated Main Cabin ticket to Aeromexico Clase Premier.

To check prices and availability or book an upgrade, contact a SkyMiles representative by calling 1-800-323-2323. If you are a Medallion Member, check the Contact Us section in the Fly Delta app for your dedicated phone line.

Mileage Upgrade Awards are available on Delta’s published fares in Y, B, M, H, Q, K, L, U or T class. Upgrades are based on availability and must be completed at least 24 hours before scheduled departure. For more information, please visit Mileage Upgrade Awards.

1 How do I know if a flight is marketed, operated, or ticketed by Delta or a partner?

  • The marketing carrier is determined by the two letter airline code in the flight number. For example, DL2368 is marketed by Delta and AM18 is marketed by Aeromexico.
  • A Delta-ticketed flight features a ticket number that begins with “006”. Any flight purchased through delta.com is ticketed by Delta. Other airlines have their own unique ticket numbers – for example, Aeromexico-ticked flights feature ticket numbers that begin 139.
  • The operating carrier for a flight indicates which airline owns the plane. For example, an Aeromexico-operated flight means the flight will be on an Aeromexico aircraft.

 

How Elevate Your Status works:

  • Members should know their 2017 MQM, MQS and MQD balance before purchasing a bundle. If you need to check your balance, go to My SkyMiles. Then click "View Prior Year Details" to see your 2017 earn towards 2018 Status. Take note of how many MQMs, MQSs and MQDs you need to reach the next Tier of 2018 Medallion Status.
  • Eligible Members can visit delta.com/elevateyourstatus and log in to participate.
  • Click “Purchase Now” to go through the easy steps to complete your transaction.
  • Once you’ve completed your transaction, the MQMs, MQSs and MQDs will be added to your 2017 balance and apply towards your 2018 Medallion Status within 24 hours. Please be sure to select a bundle that gives you enough MQMs, MQSs and MQDs to reach the next Tier of Status.
  • Members can purchase a minimum of 1,000 MQMs and 3 MQSs or up to a maximum of 10,000 MQMs and 15 MQSs. The dollar amount spent on MQMs and MQSs will be credited to your MQDs balance.

Who is eligible:

  • All Platinum, Gold and Silver Medallion Members are eligible for Elevate Your Status, unless they received complimentary Status for a Tier above the Tier they earned Status for. For example, if a Member is given complimentary Gold Medallion Status, but earned Silver Medallion Status through the published requirements, he or she is ineligible for Elevate Your Status.
  • General SkyMiles Members must be within range to reach Silver Medallion Status by purchasing the maximum bundle of MQMs, MQSs and MQDs, in order to be eligible to participate. For example, if a Member only has 14,000 MQMs, he or she will not be eligible because the maximum amount of MQMs that can be earned through Elevate Your Status is 10,000 and the MQMs requirement for Silver Medallion Status is 25,000.
  • As a reminder, Diamond Medallion Members are ineligible for Elevate Your Status because Diamond Medallion Members have already reached the highest Tier of Medallion Status.

Have questions about Elevate Your Status? Visit our Elevate Your Status FAQs page to learn more.

Recent Medallion Member Updates


Medallion Members receive complimentary preferred seats on Aeromexico-operated flights. Previously, after a ticket had already been purchased, preferred seats were listed as unavailable in the seat map on delta.com or the Fly Delta app, and selecting a preferred seat required calling Aeromexico.

Starting today, if a customer has already purchased a ticket on a Delta-marketed, Aeromexico-operated flight, preferred seats will be available for purchase in the seat map on delta.com. However, all customers, including Medallion Members, will be charged for preferred seats if they’re selected through Delta channels (delta.com, Fly Delta app). Medallion Members should continue to call Aeromexico (1-800-237-6639) to receive complimentary preferred seats on Aeromexico-operated flights.

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 Aeromexico aircraft.

There are now more ways to use more your miles than ever before when you shop in the all-new SkyMiles Marketplace. Medallion Members and Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card Members can redeem their miles toward a wider variety of merchandise, gift cards, hotel stays, car rentals, in addition to the new option to book activities and cruises. Also, all SkyMiles Members are able to use their miles to Give the Gift of GoTM with a Delta Gift Card.

Check out the new SkyMiles Marketplaceopens in a new window, which is now mobile-friendly—making it easy to shop on-the-go.

As a Medallion Member, you can now receive Complimentary Upgrades before your departure date on Aeromexico-operated* flights, similar to how Complimentary Upgrades work on Delta flights today. And, your friend or family member can get upgraded too, with one travel companion now being eligible for upgrades.

Learn everything there is to know about Complimentary Upgrades with Aeromexico.

*The operating carrier for a flight indicates which airline operates the aircraft. For example, an Aeromexico-operated flight means the flight will be on Aeromexico aircraft.

  • $100 on vacations of $2,500-$3,999
  • $200 on vacations of $4,000-$5,999
  • $300 on vacations of $6,000 or more

After a vacation has been selected, the savings will be applied prior to choosing to pay with money or miles.

This exclusive offer is in appreciation of our Members’ loyalty. As a reminder, SkyMiles Members can earn up to 7,500 bonus miles per person with a Delta Vacations flight and hotel package.

Visit the offer homepage to learn more or book your next vacation.

Some resorts, ski, and dive vacations are excluded from this offer. Additional restrictions may apply.

Medallion Members now have even more ways to be upgraded. As of April 1, 2018, Members can receive day-of-departure Complimentary Upgrades to Delta One® on all flights within the U.S. 50 – including flights to Hawaii.

As a reminder, Medallion Members will be eligible for Complimentary Upgrades to:

From February 1st through January 31st, 2019, Diamond Medallion Members can receive select complimentary spa services at the Asanda Spa Lounges in the Atlanta E, JFK T4 and Seattle A Delta Sky Club® locations. This benefit is in recognition of Diamond Medallion Members’ loyalty.

Complimentary services for Diamond Medallion Members include Dream Weaver, a light and sound experience designed to help achieve the benefits of meditation instantly, or Audio Guided Relaxation Experiences, where you can listen to noise cancelling headphones while being reclined in a Living Earth Zero Gravity Chair or Wave Lounger. Both experiences are designed by Deepak Chopra MD, world renowned wellness expert and mind body health pioneer, so you can relax during your travels. Asanda Spa Lounges also offer massages, facials, and popular hair, skin and body products.

Members must show their Diamond Medallion credentials to the Asanda representative to enjoy the complimentary services. Appointments are recommended and can be made through Asanda’s online booking toolopens in a new windowopens in a new window or by calling 844-588-2448.

Starting January 22, 2018, Upgrade Certificates, which are available exclusively for Diamond and Platinum Medallion Members as a Choice Benefit, may now be used to upgrade on Pay with Miles tickets and SkyMiles Companion Certificates in addition to regular retail tickets.

Additionally, Certificate owners can now use an Upgrade Certificate on a companion without having to use one for themselves. So when two SkyMiles Members (one of which has Upgrade Certificates in their account) are traveling together on the same flight—whether in the same reservation or a linked reservation—an Upgrade Certificate can now be used for just one Member*. For example:

  • Previously, if a Member was flying to Europe for business in Delta One, and had a companion traveling on the same flight, he/she would not have been able to use an Upgrade Certificate to upgrade the companion to Delta One.
  • Now, in the same scenario, the Member will be able to use one Upgrade Certificate to upgrade his/her companion to Delta One as long as the companion is a SkyMiles Member.

Visit Upgrade Certificates to learn more.

* When upgrading on SkyMiles Companion Certificates, two Upgrade Certificates will be required to upgrade as the primary ticket holder and the companion must always travel in the same cabin.

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 Please note, this links to an external site separate from delta.com, which may not follow the same accessibility or privacy policies.opens in a new windowopens in a new window on any Delta-marketed, Aeromexico-operated1 flight. With Clase Premier, Medallion Members will receive:

  • Complimentary pre-flight access to Aeromexico Salon Premier clubs
  • An elevated in-flight experience, including flat-bed seats, culinary delights from world famous Mexican chef Enrique Olvera, and more

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.

1How do I know if a flight is marketed, operated, or ticketed by Delta or a partner?

  • The marketing carrier is determined by the two letter airline code in the flight number. For example, DL2368 is marketed by Delta and AM18 is marketed by Aeromexico.
  • Delta-ticketed flights feature ticket numbers that begin with 006. Any flight purchased through delta.com is ticketed by Delta. Other airlines have their own unique ticket numbers. For example, Aeromexico-ticketed flights feature ticket numbers that begin with 139.
  • The operating carrier for a flight indicates which airline flies the plane. For example, an Aeromexico-operated flight means the flight will be on Aeromexico aircraft.

2Short-haul flights operated by Aeromexico include intra-Mexico flights, and flights between Mexico and the United States, Canada, Central America, Caribbean, Colombia, Ecuador and Venezuela.

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.

To learn more about how to earn Medallion Status, visit How to Get Medallion Status.

Frequently Asked Questions

 

Today, the MQDs requirement for the qualification year is waived if you make $25,000 or more in eligible purchases during the calendar year with Delta SkyMiles Credit Card from American Express. This benefit is for Basic Card Members only (additional Card Members are not eligible). The qualification year is from January 1 to December 31 of a given year. The close of the qualification year is December 31, without regard to the time of the year that the credit card account is opened. This means that for the first year of Card Membership, the Card Member's Eligible Purchase period may be less than twelve months.

Delta SkyMiles Credit Card, Gold Delta SkyMiles Credit Card, Platinum Delta SkyMiles, Delta Reserve Credit Card, Delta SkyMiles Business Credit Card, Gold Delta SkyMiles Business Credit Card, Platinum Delta SkyMiles Business Credit Card, Delta Reserve for Business Credit Card from American Express, Blue Delta SkyMiles Credit Card (through December 31, 2017*). *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.

Eligible Purchases are purchases for goods and services minus returns and other credits. Eligible Purchases do NOT include fees, interest charges, balance transfers, cash advances, purchases of travelers' checks, purchases or reloading of prepaid cards, or purchases of other cash equivalents. Eligible Purchases made by Additional Card Members on the Basic Card Member's Eligible Card will count toward the Eligible Purchase threshold. Eligible Purchases will be combined across multiple Eligible Cards of the Basic Card Member if those Card accounts are linked to the same SkyMiles number

The MQD Waiver increase to $250,000 in a calendar year to qualify for Diamond Medallion Status has no impact on any of your other card benefits.

In this instance, you would remain a Platinum Medallion Member through January 31, 2020 by reaching the Platinum Medallion requirements for 2019 Status. In order to get to Diamond Medallion Status, you would have to earn $15,000 MQDs or reach the $250,000 Diamond MQD Waiver by December 31, 2018 to reach Diamond Medallion Status for 2019 and keep Diamond Medallion Status through January 31, 2020.

2018 Medallion Status is earned through flight and spending activity from January 1, 2017 to December 31, 2017. From now until December 31, 2017, you have the opportunity to reach Diamond Medallion Status for 2018 through the current $25,000 MQD Waiver. In order to reach Diamond Medallion Status for 2019, which is earned through flight and spending activity from January 1, 2018 through December 31, 2018, you will need to meet the MQMs/MQSs requirement, and earn the required MQDs or reach the $250,000 Diamond MQD Waiver.

 

JUNE 30, 2017

Summer is Better with Recent Medallion Program Improvements

Summer is here, and traveling as a Medallion Member is more valuable than ever before with recent program improvements we’ve made based on your feedback. Here’s a reminder of the great things you can now enjoy:

GET THE UPGRADES YOU WANT

  • Enjoy more flexibility with two new ways to manage your upgrades through the seat map:
    • Opt in and get your Complimentary Upgrades automatically with the ability to change your seat through the seat map afterward, or
    • Opt out and select your upgrades yourself, giving you the ability to only upgrade if your exact desired seat is available
  • If you aren’t opted in for automatic Delta Comfort+ upgrades, you can now request a Delta Comfort+ upgrade to any available seat or just a window/aisle seat when checking in for a flight.
  • Upgrades now clear at the gate ten minutes earlier than before, which gives you more of an opportunity to secure an upgraded seat before you board. And, through coordination between our gate agents and flight attendants, if you are the next Medallion Member on the upgrade list, we’ll do our best to upgrade you when an upgrade becomes available before takeoff, even if you’ve already boarded.
  • Companions traveling with Medallion Members are now eligible for Complimentary Upgrades on Award Tickets, Miles + Cash tickets, and Pay with Miles tickets, in addition to paid tickets. And, companions are also eligible for Complimentary Upgrades when traveling with a Delta SkyMiles Member on a SkyMiles Companion Certificate.

PERSONALIZE YOUR REWARDS WITH CHOICE BENEFITS

  • Only Delta offers Choice Benefits, giving you the power to customize your travel experience exactly how you want. 2018 Diamond Medallion Members receive three Choice Benefits instead of two, with flexibility to enjoy the Delta Sky Club membership option that’s right for you, including the new Delta Sky Club Guest Pass.

We know as a Medallion Member, you look forward to Complimentary Upgrades when you travel. That is why we have improved our policy for clearing upgrades at the gate prior to each flight’s departure to ensure that more Medallion Members are getting the upgrades they deserve.

We’ll start clearing upgrades at the gate ten minutes earlier than before, to allow more opportunity to secure an upgraded seat before you board. Plus, through the coordination of our gate agents and flight attendants, if the next Medallion Member on the list has already boarded when an upgrade becomes available, we will do our very best to upgrade them before takeoff, when possible.

To learn more about the upgrade clearance process, visit Complimentary Upgrades.

In addition to taking more control of your Complimentary Upgrades through the seat map, starting June 15, 2017, Medallion Members who are not opted in to receive automatic Delta Comfort+ upgrades will now have the ability to request an upgrade with seat type preferences when checking in for a flight. Upon check-in, Medallion Members can request a Delta Comfort+ upgrade to any available seat or only a window/aisle seat, giving you more options and control for your trip.

How it works:

  • You will only be able to select your Delta Comfort+ upgrade seat preference at check-in if you are traveling alone AND have set your preferences to opt-out of automatic Complimentary Delta Comfort+ Upgrades.
  • Once you have selected your seat preference at check-in, your upgrade request will be added to the Airport Standby list. Upgrades will clear based on availability and clearance priority.
  • Medallion Members who chose to opt-in to Complimentary Upgrades prior to check-in will still receive top priority within their eligibility window.

To learn more about your options, visit Complimentary Upgrades.

Starting June 1, 2017, Platinum Medallion Members plus one guest who are traveling in Delta Main Cabin, Virgin Atlantic Premium Economy or Virgin Atlantic Economy cabin are able to access the Virgin Atlantic Clubhouse located in Terminal 3 in London-Heathrow. As a reminder, Diamond Medallion Members began receiving the same level of Virgin Atlantic Clubhouse access on February 16, 2017.

Starting May 24, 2017, Medallion Complimentary Upgrades will begin clearing on an hourly basis instead of a daily basis. This means that upgrade clearances prior to day of departure will now align closely with the hour of flight departure time. This does not change your Medallion clearance window for your Medallion Tier.

As a reminder:

  • Diamond Medallion Members: eligible for Complimentary Upgrades to Delta Comfort+ shortly after ticketing and First Class beginning 120 hours (5 days) prior to departure with priority
  • Platinum Medallion Members: eligible for Complimentary Upgrades to Delta Comfort+ shortly after ticketing and First Class beginning 120 hours (5 days) prior to departure

Starting May 24, 2017, Medallion Members will enjoy more flexibility around Complimentary Upgrades with two new ways to manage upgrades through the seat map.

Opt in and get your upgrades automatically:

  • Medallion Members who have already received a Complimentary Upgrade will now have the ability to select an available* seat in a different class of service through the seat map** at delta.com. So, for example, if you receive an upgrade to a Delta Comfort+ window seat, but you prefer an exit row aisle, you can revert back to Main Cabin via the seat map, if available.

Opt out and select your upgrades yourself:

  • Medallion Members who opt out of Complimentary Upgrades will now be able to self-select an available* First Class or Delta Comfort+ seat through the seat map by using the Fly Delta app or going to delta.com, if within their upgrade eligibility window.

Medallion Members who are opted in to Complimentary Upgrades will still receive first priority for Complimentary Upgrades over Medallion Members who choose to opt out.

Learn more about Complimentary Upgrades and how to change your opt in/opt out preferences.

*When using the seat map, Medallion Members may see upgrades available for purchase within their eligibility window and can choose to purchase the upgrade or wait for their Complimentary Upgrade to clear, if these seats go unsold.

Diamond, Platinum, and Gold Medallion Members traveling on Delta flights can continue to enjoy access to TIAT Lounge and TIAT Lounge Annex at Haneda Airport (HND) for themselves plus one guest, regardless of the cabin of service they are traveling in, until October 31, 2017. Just show your Delta same-day boarding pass* to enter both lounges.

Delta Sky Club® members can also continue to enjoy lounge access during this time, even when traveling on non-Delta flights. Members with an Executive Membership can enjoy access for themselves and up to two guests per visit. Just show your Delta Sky Club membership card and same-day boarding pass to enter both lounges.

*To gain entry, boarding pass must display SkyMiles number. 

Now traveling with your companion is even better. Starting April 6, 2017, companions traveling with Medallion Members will be eligible for Complimentary Upgrades not only on paid tickets but Award Tickets, Miles + Cash tickets, and Pay with Miles tickets. Companions traveling with a Delta SkyMiles Credit Card Member on a SkyMiles Companion Certificate will also be eligible for Complimentary Upgrades.

Here’s what Medallion Members need to know:

A Medallion Member and a traveling companion may both enjoy a Complimentary Upgrade to First Class, Business Class or Delta Comfort+® when traveling on Delta and Delta Connection carriers, as long as that companion is a General SkyMiles Member or a Medallion Member in the same reservation.

Complimentary Companion Upgrades must be requested at delta.com during the booking process, afterwards in My Trips, or during check-in prior to departure.
