Are you a top-tier frequent flier?
Have you heard about Delta’s SkyMiles Medallion® Status Match Challenge?
If not, we’d like to share some valuable information about how to leverage your current elite status (on American, United, or Continental) to receive comparable benefits on Delta.
Until June 30, 2012, if frequent fliers meet the outlined criteria, they will receive Platinum, Gold or Silver Medallion status from Delta for 90 days, based on their current elite level with another airline. To then maintain those matched Medallion rewards through the remainder of 2012, the flier would then simply need to earn a specific number of qualification miles. The required number of qualification miles is based on the matched Medallion level.
But what are the benefits of doing this?
Well, depending on the Medallion level, members enjoy exclusive privileges such as:
- Unlimited complimentary upgrades for paid tickets
- Access to preferred seats and economy comfort seats
- Priority wait list status
- Fee waivers for baggage and ticketing charges
- Priority baggage handling
- Premium benefits on in-flight food and beverage
- Lounge access
Plus participating in challenges like this means you don’t have to start at square one in accruing points and miles if you want to switch airlines.
