American Express is currently issuing two Delta credit cards made with 25% of the card coming from a retired Boeing 747 aircraft.
Both cards are the most premium level Delta cards Amex issues, the Delta Reserve cards, with a $550 annual fee (and rich benefits to match, like SkyClub access and an annual 2 for 1 domestic ticket in any class of service including Delta One).
You can choose from the Delta SkyMiles® Reserve American Express Card (see benefits) which comes with a welcome bonus of 100,000 Bonus Miles when you spend $5,000 in your first 3 months and the Delta SkyMiles® Reserve Business American Express Credit Card (see benefits) where you can earn 110,000 Bonus Miles when you spend $6,000 in your first 3 months.
When applying for either Delta SkyMiles Reserve Card, you can choose your Card’s design: limited edition Boeing 747 metal, classic metal or 70% reclaimed plastic. The Boeing 747 design is made with 25% metal from a retired Boeing 747 aircraft.
I think this is really cool and will probably grab one. My only hesitation is that I’ve been holding out for a welcome bonus that included MQMs. Decisions, decisions…..
Amex has also increased the bonus offers on the entire suite of Delta Amex cards, which you can browse here.
