It’s nice to see Delta ADD a benefit for once.

If you’re a Silver Medallion, you know you don’t get much these days.

But from now on, you CAN get upgraded on award tickets and I applaud Delta for adding this. Let’s face it, you’re at the BOTTOM of the totem pole here and you are unlikely to get many of these upgrades. You are behind all other medallions and all Silver medallions on revenue tickets.

But it’s welcome nonetheless.

Now, will Delta just add upgrades on the Amex Companion Pass tickets?? That can be even lower priority but no need to exclude it entirely, in my opinion.
