Mileage from one account cannot be pooled or combined with the mileage of another individual’s account. Each Member must earn his/her own mileage credit.

Flights and itineraries eligible for MQMs will earn a minimum of 500 MQMs per segment. “Distance flown” means the calculated distance between the origin and destination, as determined by Delta in its sole discretion, regardless of the actual distance traveled on any individual flight.

(3) MQSs are earned through flight activity on Delta, Delta Connection, Delta Shuttle, and select airline partners. All paid fare classes eligible to earn MQMs count toward MQSs. MQDs are the sum total of the SkyMiles Member’s spend on Delta-marketed flights (flight numbers that include the “DL” airline code), inclusive of the base fare and carrier-imposed surcharges, but exclusive of government-imposed taxes and fees.

Delta SkyMiles American Express Card Members can reach Medallion Status faster with a special offer in 2021.

As SkyMiles Members consider travel in 2021 and beyond, you can look forward to more choice and control over managing your plans as Delta is expanding on its customer-first flexibility promise by permanently eliminating change fees for international travel originating from North America, effective immediately. 

SkyMiles Members can now expect: 

  • No Award ticket redeposit or reissue fees for travel originating from North America to anywhere in the world (including flights operated by joint venture and codeshare partners), with the exception of Basic Economy tickets.
  • Changes and cancellations of Award tickets within 72 hours of departure will no longer result in the loss of miles.

This follows Delta’s previous announcement of the elimination of change fees for travel within the U.S., Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Islands, excluding Basic Economy fares.

SkyMiles Members can also take advantage of no change fees for all tickets purchased through March 30, 2021, for both domestic and international travel – regardless of the type of ticket booked or travel destination. Members can also use their travel credits through December 2022 for travel originally scheduled to depart before March 31, 2021 (if the ticket was purchased before April 17, 2020).

As we look towards 2021, we want our Members to feel more in control when booking their Award Travel with no change fees and more flexibility as a permanent Delta pledge.

SkyMiles Members can now enjoy greater flexibility and peace of mind when traveling on an Award ticket with the ability to change their plans at any time. 

The following changes are effective immediately for Award tickets for travel within the U.S. (including Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Islands), excluding Basic Economy fares:

  • Award ticket redeposit and reissue fees have been eliminated
  • Members may change or cancel Award tickets before departure. No longer will changes and cancellations made within 72 hours of departure result in the loss of miles. 

Now more than ever, we want our Members to feel confident when booking Award Travel as they consider their travel plans. 

As previously announced, SkyMiles Members can already take advantage of no change fees for all tickets purchased through Dec. 31, 2020, for both domestic and international travel. Members can also use their travel credits through December 2022 for travel originally scheduled to depart before March 31, 2021 (if the ticket was purchased before April 17, 2020).

We are adding new offers to eligible Delta SkyMiles® Reserve, Platinum, and Gold American Express Cards to help you get more value out of your every day, no matter if you’re staying at home or planning your next escape.

  • With the new offers, eligible Delta SkyMiles® Gold American Express Card Members can enroll and earn 4X miles at restaurants – including takeout and delivery – and 5X miles on Delta purchases after using their Delta SkyMiles® Gold Card until 12/31/20; that’s 2 miles per dollar on top of what they already earn for restaurants and 3 miles per dollar on top of what they already earn on Delta purchases.1
  • Eligible Delta SkyMiles® Platinum and Reserve American Express Card Members can enroll and earn 5X miles on Delta purchases made with their enrolled Card; that’s 2 additional miles per dollar on top of what they already earn. Card Members can also enroll and earn 500 bonus miles and 500 Medallion Qualification Miles (MQMs) after $1,000 in purchases – up to 25,000 miles and 25,000 MQMs each - on their enrolled Card. Both offers require enrolling separately and are valid through 12/31/20.2,3

Beginning on flights on or after January 1, 2020, SkyMiles Members will no longer earn miles on China Southern flights that are marketed1, Go to footer note or operated1, Go to footer note by SkyTeam partner airlines. SkyMiles Members flying with China Southern will continue earning miles only on the following flights: 

  • China Southern-marketed/China Southern-operated
  • Delta-marketed/China Southern-operated 
  • China Southern-marketed/Delta-operated

These changes are due to China Southern’s exit from the SkyTeam Airline Alliance on January 1, 2019. China Southern will continue to be a Delta Global Airline Partner and Medallion Member’s benefits on China Southern will not change.

Learn more about how to earn miles on China Southern and our other partner airlines.

1 How do I know if a flight is marketed or operated 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 CZ238 is marketed by China Southern. 
  • The operating carrier for a flight indicates which airline flies the plane. For example, a China Southern-operated flight means the flight will be on a China Southern aircraft.

Through February 29th, 2020, eligible Members that are close to achieving Diamond, Platinum, Gold or Silver Medallion Status for the 2020 Medallion Year can reach that next Medallion Tier by participating in Elevate Your Status.

Elevate Your Status allows Members to purchase a bundle of Medallion Qualification Miles (MQMs), Medallion Qualification Segments (MQSs) and Medallion Qualification Dollars (MQDs – U.S.-based Members only) in order to achieve the next Tier of Medallion Status.

All Tiers of Medallion Status include:

How Elevate Your Status works:

  • Members should know their current MQM, MQS and MQD balance before purchasing a bundle. If you need to check your balance, go to My SkyMiles or the SkyMiles section of the Fly Delta app.
  • 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 2019 balance and apply towards your 2020 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.

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 12,000 MQMs, he or she will not be eligible because the maximum amount of MQMs that can be earned through Elevate Your Status is 12,500 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.

If you still have travel planned for 2019 and you’re not sure which bundle of MQMs/MQSs you might need, don’t worry! This offer lasts until February 29, 2020, so you can wait to purchase your bundle until you know your 2019 balance.

Last year, we extended your 2020 Medallion Status through January 31, 2022 to ensure your benefits are available when you are ready to travel again. Due to the impacts of the pandemic, if you received this Status extension and did not earn 2021 Medallion Status through qualifying flight and spend activity, we won’t be sending a new Medallion Welcome Kit or set of bag tags. 

Rest assured, you can continue to use your 2020 bag tags as no design or material changes are being made to Medallion bag tags this year, and the tags you already have on hand remain the latest and greatest. As always, you can still access your 2021 digital membership card at any time in the Fly Delta app. 

Those that earned 2021 Medallion Status through the required flight and spend activity were sent Welcome Kits upon earning that Status.

Now more than ever, we appreciate your loyalty and for continuing to trust us with your travel. Know that our commitment remains to keeping you, and our crew, safe.

Learn more about how Delta is making space onboard . 

As a Medallion® Member, your health and safety are our highest priority. That is why we are temporarily pausing automatic, advance Medallion Complimentary Upgrades beginning Monday, April 13th through June 30th, 2020. During this time, Complimentary Upgrades will still be processed at the gate in priority order. That way, gate agents can determine how to best seat customers while considering social distancing and aircraft weight and balance restrictions. 

Additionally, our boarding process has been temporarily modified and you will be invited to board by row, starting from the rear of the aircraft forward. If you are seated in Delta One® or First Class or you are a Diamond Medallion Member, you are welcome to board at any point during the temporary boarding process change.  

Here’s important things to know about these temporary changes:

  • Both of these temporary changes are currently planned to run until June 30, 2020. At that time, we’ll evaluate if an extension is needed based on the current environment.
  • This applies to Complimentary Upgrades to Delta Comfort+, First Class, and US domestic Delta One. As a reminder, there are no Complimentary Upgrades to Delta Premium Select or international Delta One.
  • Medallion Members will also not be able to select Complimentary Upgrades themselves in the seat map. Upgrades will only be processed by gate agents prior to boarding based on availability and the temporary changes we have implemented to make space for safer travel. 
  • While the temporary Complementary Upgrade policy is active, Diamond and Platinum Medallion Members booking flights that depart after June 30, 2020 will not have the ability to immediately upgrade into Delta Comfort+ shortly after booking. Once the social distancing policy has ended and automatic Complimentary Upgrades are reinstated, all Members that were eligible for immediate Delta Comfort+ Complimentary Upgrades for future flights will be cleared in priority order, subject to availability.  
  • The temporary Complimentary Upgrade change does not impact Upgrade Certificates. Global and Regional Upgrade Certificates, available to Medallion Members through Choice Benefits, will still be processed as they normally are. Waitlisted Global and Regional Upgrade Certificates will still be cleared at a higher priority than Complimentary Upgrades at the gate. View more on the clearance process for Upgrade Certificates here, opens in a new window.
  • Nothing is changing with the Preferred Seats policy at this time. Preferred Seats may still be selected by Medallion Members at booking, subject to availability. 

Now more than ever, we appreciate your loyalty and for continuing to trust us with your travel. Thank you for your understanding, and know that our commitment remains to keeping you, and our crew, safe.

You asked, and we listened. As a Medallion Member opted in1, Go to footer note to Delta Comfort+ Complimentary Upgrades, you can now select your Delta Comfort+ Seat Preferences on delta.com or the Fly Delta app for an upcoming flight.

If you are traveling by yourself and you haven’t already been cleared to Delta Comfort+ in your designated clearance window2, Go to footer note, here’s how to select your Delta Comfort+ Complimentary Upgrade Seat Preferences on an upcoming flight:

  1. Find your reservation in My Trips at delta.com or in the Fly Delta app (make sure you’ve downloaded the latest version of the Fly Delta app).
  2. Request a Delta Comfort+ Upgrade and check the “Upgrade Preferences” box.
  3. Then, check both boxes for “Request upgrade” and “Only upgrade if my Seat Preferences are available.”
  4. Select your Preferences: aisle, middle or window.
  5. If you have multiple segments in your trip, click “Apply to All Segments of the Trip" to save your Seat Preferences for each segment.
  6. Confirm your Seat Preferences. Once your Preferences are set, you will be upgraded to Delta Comfort+ for your upcoming flight if your selected Seat Preferences are available.3, Go to footer note

For now, the new Seat Preferences are only available when you are traveling alone on a Delta-operated flight (a flight on a Delta aircraft). In addition, Seat Preferences cannot be updated or changed once checked-in for a flight.

Be on the lookout for future updates as we are continuously working on improvements to create a better upgrade experience for our Medallion Members! 

1. If you’ve never set Upgrade Preferences in your SkyMiles profile before, your settings default to being opted out of automatic upgrades to Delta Comfort+, so make sure you are opted in to enjoy Complimentary Upgrades. Selecting your Delta Comfort+ Seat Preferences won’t change your global settings, and you’ll need to select your Delta Comfort+ Preferences every time you fly.
2. If your upgrade doesn’t clear right away once you are within your designated upgrade clearance window but seats are showing as available in the seat map, you can self-select your upgrade by visiting the seat map and choosing an open seat.
3. While our gate agents do their best to take set Seat Preferences into consideration, in some cases, manual upgrades made by a Delta gate agent may override Seat Preferences within 3 hours prior to the Member’s flight departure.

Upgrade Certificates, which are available exclusively for Diamond and Platinum Medallion Members as a Choice Benefit, may now be used to upgrade on flights that are booked as a part of a Delta Vacations® package.

Go beyond the flight with Delta Vacations and create your ideal getaway including flight, hotel, car rental and more to over 300 destinations. Plus, you can take advantage of an exclusive offer for Medallion Members and save up to $300 on your next booking.

Effective September 16, 2019, Diamond Medallion Members can now use a Global Upgrade Certificate to upgrade into First Class on Delta-marketed1, Korean Air-operated flights if the original ticket purchased was in Korean Air’s Prestige Class (J fare class).  

This new feature is in addition to Diamond Medallion Members’ current ability to use a Global Upgrade Certificate to upgrade into Korean Air’s Prestige Class if the original ticket purchased was in Korean Air’s Economy Class (Y, B and M fare class).* 

Medallion Members must contact Delta reservations directly to apply Upgrade Certificates and Certificates on Korean Air must be confirmed at least 24 hours prior to departure. Certificates cannot be used to waitlist for a Korean Air flight and upgrades are subject to availability. 

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 KE238 is marketed by Korean Air.
  • 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, Korean Air-ticketed flights feature ticket numbers that begin with 180.
  • The operating carrier for a flight indicates which airline flies the plane. For example, a Korean Air-operated flight means the flight will be on a Korean Air aircraft.

*Please note if you purchase an Economy Class ticket, you will not be able to use two Global Upgrade Certificates to be upgraded into First Class and a Korean Air Prestige Class ticket must be purchased in order to use a Global Upgrade Certificate into Korean Air’s First Class.

With the kick-off of the 2019 Medallion Year, we’ve made some exciting changes to welcome kits:

  • Based on Member feedback about materials, Diamond Medallion bag tags will be made of a premium metal and luggage connector loops will be made out of a more durable rubber.
  • Members who reach Million Miler Status will now receive additional premium bag tags featuring your highest-achieved Million Miler level. With this change, Million Miler Status will no longer be included on Medallion bag tags.
  • We’ve gone digital! With your membership card at your fingertips 24/7 in the Fly Delta app, Diamond and Platinum welcome kits will no longer include a physical membership card. In addition to the Fly Delta app, you can also print a card from My SkyMiles at delta.com anytime.

  • Members who reach Gold or Silver Medallion Status for the 2020 Medallion Year (earned between January 1, 2019 and December 31, 2019) will receive bag tags so you can show off your Medallion Status with pride.

When you re-qualify for your Medallion Tier, or reach a higher Tier, you can expect to receive a welcome kit in the mail within a few weeks, so make sure your delivery address is up to date now. To make changes to your mailing address, visit My Profile.

These bag tags help celebrate just how far you’ve come. We’ll keep doing everything possible so that you experience the Medallion difference every time you travel.

Our Medallion Members see the world like nobody else, so we’re excited to introduce our inaugural Milestone Awards that recognize Medallion Members’ extraordinary travels. See what it took for this year’s winners to achieve their milestones and get inspired to reach milestones of your own in 2019 at DeltaMilestones.com

Beginning this January, boarding groups for Delta flights worldwide will be renamed to reflect the fare purchased. Medallion Members will continue to board in the same groups they do today and will see the new group names reflected on their boarding passes and at the gate.

  • Diamond Medallion Members will receive highest priority boarding in Delta One®/ First Class & Diamond, formerly "Premium"
  • Platinum and Gold Medallion Members will still board with Sky Priority®
  • Silver Medallion Members will still board with Priority Boarding in Main Cabin 1, formerly Zone 1

Delta Comfort+® will now be its own boarding group and will board before Sky Priority. This means that Platinum and Gold Medallion Members seated in the Main Cabin will now board after Delta Comfort+. Medallion Members will continue to receive Unlimited Complimentary Upgrades as a benefit, so if they purchase a Main Cabin fare and are upgraded to different cabin or purchase an upgraded fare, they will board accordingly with that zone.

2018 Diamond and Platinum Medallion Members must select their 2018 Choice Benefits by January 31, 2019. Choice Benefits allow our most loyal Members to experience the Medallion difference by customizing their benefits to best fit their travel needs. Choice Benefit options include:

  • LAX-SYD beginning April 5, 2019

Starting today, Medallion Members who have already purchased a ticket on a Delta-marketed, Aeromexico-operated flight will be able to select their complimentary preferred seats on delta.com or in the Fly Delta app and no longer need to call Aeromexico to receive the seats for free. Preferred seats on Aeromexico include window or aisle main cabin seats closer to the front of the plane and all exit rows. Don’t forget, as a Medallion Member you are also eligible for Complimentary Upgrades on Aeromexico-operated flights, giving you different ways to enjoy comfortable seats during your trips with Aeromexico.

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 an Aeromexico aircraft.

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.

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.
