Delta has announced several positive changes this week including adding New Snacks in the Main Cabin and testing Complimentary Main Cabin Meals on Transcon Flights, and this latest announcement is one that fliers will also be pleased about.

Delta has announced that Starwood Platinum members (including Marriott Platinums since you can status match to SPG Platinum), will be eligible for complimentary upgrades to both First Class and Delta Comfort+. This change comes as previously, SPG Platinum members only were eligible for first class, however being low on list it’s more an aspiration than reality, so I think this new benefit is one that members can really value from.

Delta Comfort Plus

Per Delta Air Lines,

Now, Starwood Preferred Guest® (SPG®) Platinum Preferred Members enrolled in the Crossover Rewards program traveling on Delta flights will clear for Complimentary Upgrades to both First Class and Delta Comfort+ based on their SPG tier level on paid tickets. For more information on how to opt-in for Delta Comfort+ upgrades, visit Complimentary Delta Comfort+ Upgrades.

In addition, SPG Platinum members receive SPG Platinum elite members receive Priority Check-In, Priority Boarding, and the first checked bag for free when flying Delta in part of the Crossover Rewards benefits.

Bottom Line

Cheers to Delta for this latest “enhancement” and I’m sure there will be many SPG Platinum and Marriott Platinum members who will benefit from this.
