Great news for Medallion members, as Delta will now be adding complimentary Medallion upgrades to/from Tokyo. This new change applies to the three Pacific resort markets that they serve from Tokyo (NRT) which are Palau, Guam and Saipan.
Here the details of this new change:
- In a continuing effort to make our Complimentary Upgrade policies more rewarding, we are providing Medallion Members with opportunities for First Class Complimentary Upgrades on select routes to/from Tokyo-Narita (NRT). Starting December 4, 2017, Medallion Members will be eligible for Complimentary Upgrades to First Class on non-stop flights between NRT and ROR (Palau-Koror), GUM (Guam) and SPN (Saipan).
With this change, this means that Medallion members receive complimentary first class upgrades on all Delta routes with the exception of non-stop flights between HNL (Honolulu) and MSP (Minneapolis/St. Paul); HNL and JFK (New York), or HNL and ATL (Atlanta).
Additionally, Delta Medallions Now Eligible for Upgrades to Delta One Business Class as mentioned New York (JFK) to Seattle (SEA) return to a Delta One business class route and New York (JFK) to San Diego start on April 1, 2018.

Per Delta the expansion of domestic Delta One comes with an industry-leading perk: Starting April 1, 2018, Delta Sky Miles Medallion Members will be eligible for unlimited day-of-departure Complimentary Upgrades to the Delta One cabin on all domestic flights, including Hawaii. This is the airline’s latest move to simplify its SkyMiles program while making it more rewarding for customers.
