GET TO KNOW MEDALLION STATUS

Benefits at Each Tier


As a Medallion Member, you’ll enjoy the best elite travel experience whenever you fly. Get the most out of your Status with exclusive benefits at each Medallion Tier, including benefits only Delta offers.

Rollover MQMs (A Delta-Exclusive) and Earn More Miles at Each Tier


We know that it’s more important than ever to enjoy and experience the travel and benefits you know and love. As travel continues to increase, special for another year, all MQMs in your account at the end of 2021 will roll over to 2022 giving you an even bigger jumpstart on earning towards 2023 Status. And special for this year, earn up to 75% more MQMs, MQS and MQDs on Delta flights– including Award Travel – with our 2022 Medallion Status Accelerators.

In a typical year, the Medallion Qualification Miles (MQMs) you earn above your Medallion Tier will roll over to the next qualification year to give you a jump start on earning Status again. Delta is the only airline to offer this benefit and it is only for Medallion Members. Plus, at each Tier, you earn more miles from your flights to help you get to your next vacation faster.
