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.
