One of the coolest thing about being a Delta Elite member is the Delta Porsche experience they offer to both premium and frequent flyers. Delta’s program has Porsche Cayennes in various cities including Nee York, Atlanta, Los Angeles and Detroit among others.

My Porsche Experience

On this day I was traveling through Detroit. I must say I was rather surprised when I walked off the plan to see an agent holding an iPad with my name on it. Normally traveling hub to hub or small airport one may not get the Porsche Experience because it’s often reserved for premium passengers and for those frequent flyers on tight connections.

My Delta Porsche Experience

On this instance, I qualified with a tight connection. The lady couldn’t have been nicer. She asked if I wanted a direct route, or to see some of the planes, including the new A350!

I definitely felt like I got the full Porsche Experience while riding around in the red Porsche Cayenne. The passion from the employee about the Delta product and airplane equipment really came through. It was a fun 15-20 minutes ride around the airport. The best part was when I got to my new seat, I found this little note from another Delta employee thanking me for my loyalty.

Nice touch to finish off a great Porsche Experience with Delta.

  1. WOW! Flying Colonel, 3.5 million miles, diamond year after year, after years and no Porsche…
    Guess, not complaining, just a little green with envy!

    Good for you!

  2. Let me tell you about my Porsche experience! Over New Years I was flying from MKE to JAX through ATL. As I deplaned and looked out the window over the tarmac, I saw a red Cayenne Porsche pull up close to the plane I was just on, stop and let someone out.

    Yep, and that is closer than I ever expected to get to the Delta Porsche experience.

  3. I got one in MSP because of a tight connection. The one there is silver. I liked walking right onto the next plane and not going into the terminal to scan my ticket.

  4. It’s nice to look at the window and see the Porsche!! In atl many people were going to Msp for superbowl
    saw a silver porsche outside ..It picked up four superbowl peeps Nice!!

  5. Tight connection at LAX to Las Vegas this week – to my surprise I was met on the jet bridge and whisked from terminal 3 to terminal 2 in a black one. It was my first time and was a nice treat…..

  6. The one time in recent history I could have used the service was nowhere to be found and the result was I missed a connection by 2 minutes. I guess 3 million miles, Flying Colonel and constant Diamond status isn’t enough to warrant consideration.

  7. I’ve had this happen twice, both at LAX. The first time, I my incoming flight was delayed and I had about 15 minutes to connect. Today, I was very surprised to see someone waiting for me, considering I had over an hour to get to my connecting flight!

    Grateful for both experiences.

  8. Just had it this AM in Detroit. Headed to CLE from MKE. Not a super tight connection, but it was a little slow for our driver so he sought us out 🙂 thx Delta!

  9. I am Flying Colonel, 3+million miler, every year Diamond and once when I had 2 hours to make a connection I got the Porsche. But when I had very tight connections not a Porsche to be found and in fact on two occasions the Porsche would have made the difference of making the connection or not. And both times I missed my connection.
    So NOT a big fan!
