When it comes to upgrades, Delta offers a generous upgrade policy for Medallions, offering unlimited complimentary upgrades on most domestic routes. We recently wrote about how upgrades will now clear 40 minutes prior at the gate, and how gate agents will be more likely to move you up on the plane. More good news follows, this time in regards to companion upgrades.
There’s more great news to come for Delta Medallions, as starting today, April 6, companions traveling in the same reservationas a Medallion member will be eligible for complimentary upgrades on the following ticket types:
- Award Tickets
- Miles + Cash tickets
- Pay with Miles tickets
- AMEX Companion Certificates
If you are looking for a way to earn even more miles, The Gold Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card earns you 30,000 bonus miles after you make $1,000 in purchases on your new Card within your first 3 months. The Delta Reserve® Credit Card earns you 10,000 Medallion® Qualification Miles (MQMs) and 10,000 bonus miles after your first purchase on the Card. The Platinum Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card earns you 35,000 bonus miles after you spend $1,000 in purchases on your new Card in your first 3 months.
This is great news as companions will now be upgraded on virtually every type of ticket (exception for E fares), as long as they are in the same reservation as the Medallion. Better yet, the companions will clear at the same priority as the Medallion member.
Feel free to share comment below your thoughts on the latest change for Delta Medallions.
