Delta is at it again, with another one of their targeted promotions in which they offer a fast-track route to Medallion status. Surprisingly, this time this one isn’t geared toward NY business travelers, but rather potential fliers in Alaska.

Alaska residents can sign-up for this promotion through October 31, 2014 which includes a Fast Track to Medallion status, a 30% one ticket, and a $25 Delta voucher.

Delta Launches Fast-Track Promotion

Details of the offer:

  • Fast Track to Medallion Status
    Enjoy 60 days of Silver Medallion status and all the benefits that come with it. Keep Silver Medallion status through February 2015 by earning 4K Medallion Qualification Miles (MQMs) or 4 Medallion Qualification Segments (MQSs) within 60 days. Get Gold Medallion status through February 2015 by earning 8K MQMs or 8 MQSs within 60 days after registration.
  • 30% Discount
    A one-time discount is available toward the purchase of a full Y fare-class Delta or Delta Connection-marketed and –operated ticket. Travel must commence within four days of redemption and ticket purchase. Book and redeem by December 31, 2014.
  • $25 E-Certificate
    Purchase an Economy Comfort ticket by December 31, 2014, then fly and watch a one-time $25 land in your SkyMiles account. With Economy Comfort, enjoy prime seating at the front of the Economy cabin, Priority Boarding, quicker deplaning, and more legroom.

As a reminder Alaskans receive two free checked bags each for up to eight travel companions through December 31, 2014 as long as the first flight originates in Alaska.

Bottom Line
It’s no secret that Delta competes with Alaska Airlines in Alaska, and they are doing what they can to win over the business.
Does anyone think its unfair to offer Alaska residents special perks like two free checked bags? Do you think Delta should be offering Hawaii residents similar perks?
