Diamond: the new VIP members of Delta Air Lines
A fourth status has been added to the SkyMiles loyalty program of Delta Air Lines. Diamond members can now carry over their excess miles from year to year.
These changes will take effect over the next nine months and will add a fourth status to Delta’s SkyMiles loyalty program, called the Diamond Medallion.
Diamond Medallion members will obtain this status by earning 125,000 Medaillion Qualification Miles (MQM) or by making 140 flights per calendar year (or even!).
New tier benefits include free Delta Sky Club membership, 125 percent bonus miles for card purchases, no fees for award ticket or baggage reservations, and “other exclusive rewards.”
In addition, the airline will allow Medallion members to carry over their excess miles at the end of the year, to more easily maintain their rank.
For example, if a Medallion member earns 40,000 MQMs in one year (or 15,000 more than the 25,000 needed to remain a Silver Medallion member), the excess of 15,000 miles will carry over to the following year.
There is no limit to the number of miles carried over and Delta claims to be the first airline in the world to offer this benefit.
Other Program Changes: All ticketing fees are waived for Diamond, Platinum and Gold Medallion members.
Diamond and Platinum Medallion members enjoy a series of benefits, including bonus miles, the ability to offer Medallion status, and day passes to Club Delta Sky.
