As a Medallion Member, you spend a lot of time with Delta employees, and we want to recognize the employees that go above and beyond to make your travel experience exceptional.

Email your stories to MedallionThanks@delta.com with as much detail as possible so we can identify the employee who helped make your day. If you know their name that is really helpful, but also who were they? A gate agent at the JFK airport? A flight attendant on your trip from LAX to ATL? A phone representative? The more information you can share, the better.

If you have stories from the past, we’re eager to hear those too. Please send us any of the details you can remember.

Besides helping recognize employees, some of the best stories might be featured in Delta marketing! Before anything you’ve shared with us is made public, we’ll be sure to contact you via email for your permission.

And so you’re aware, MedallionThanks@delta.com is not being monitored for customer servicing issues. Please share those at delta.com/comment to ensure issues can be addressed as quickly as possible.
