Delta Airlines Frequent Flyer SkyMiles Program


Delta Air Line's Frequent Flyer Program can help you save time and money. SkyMiles do not expire with Delta, and for flyers who travel beyond a certain mileage, the Medallion Program provides elite privileges. You can sign up, manage, or learn how to earn and use miles on their SkyMiles webpage.

SkyMiles Features

Members have flexibility to combine Coach, First Class/BusinessElite, SkySaver and SkyChoice travel into one ticket and save thousands of miles. Here is an example of how you can save miles: "A member who travels from Atlanta to London in a SkyChoice BusinessElite seat and returns from London to Atlanta in a SkySaver Coach seat may now redeem 150,000 miles versus the previously-required 250,000 miles for the same itinerary. Or, a member can fly from New York to Los Angeles in a SkySaver First Class seat and return in a SkySaver Coach seat for 35,000 miles, which previously would have required 45,000 miles."

In addition to these features, SkyMiles has also added tools to request upgrades automatically for Medallion members when they make eligible reservations at delta.com, with Delta reservations, or through a travel agent. For more details about the SkyMiles Medallion program click here.
