Sharing Your Medallion Stories
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.

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.
