Delta just announced that they are expanding their Porsche Service to Los Angeles, New York-JFK and Minneapolis/St. Paul.
Currently it has only been available in Atlanta which started back in 2011, so this is a great addition to the service. Delta claims that they are able to pick up about 75 passengers a day, so adding to these three other cities should greatly increase the number of customers that will receive this service.
“Delta is continuing to create new ways to recognize and enhance the travel experience for our most valuable customers,” said Mike Henny, director – Customer Experience. “By partnering with Porsche to offer unsuspecting pick-ups in an even more unexpected vehicle, we’ve found a unique opportunity to surprise and delight customers while assisting customers between connecting flights.”
Diamond Medallion customers selected for the service are greeted at the aircraft boarding door by a Delta Elite Services representative who escorts them with their baggage to an awaiting vehicle and on to their connecting gate. Each customer is selected for transfer based on a number of factors including flight operation, connection timing and member status.
I’m glad to see Delta expanding this service to these cities. If you’ve been lucky enough to have been selected for a Porsche pickup, please feel free to share below!
