    I want to be a Delta Air Lines Medallion GM because I love having a special telephone line for booking. Also love access to the Delta/Skymiles lounges worldwide. I was Medallion GM for many years, but I lost it this year. I recently flew Delta and partners, and although all was great, being a Medallion GM passenger would have made it even better!

  2. As a GM PM+, I could gift status to my mother, who flies Delta a great deal more than I, though usually not enough to gain status.

  3. I want to be a Delta (DM) Medallion because I would love to have lounge access.

  4. Pingback: Get closer to your free ticket to the Star MegaDo here… - Live From A Lounge

  5. Delta Medallion for the upgrades and lounge access

  6. Uri Gophna

    I would love to travel in style (for a change)

  7. Upgrades. I want upgrades. And Miles, more miles means more trips where I can bring the family!

  8. KOMAL K.

    I’d love to be a DELTA GM coz i want to be entitled to business and first class travel without having to wait for my ID subload crew seats!! and definitely for my *DELTA POINTS*

  9. Pm+ so i can gift status to friends and family

  10. Chris E.

    As much as I enjoy traveling, I hate the process of boarding and deplaning.

    There is nothing that terrifies me more than watching a gaggle of kettles try to get on the plane with full size roller bags stuffed with their entire wardrobe, hunt for non-existent overhead space for them, and then make a scene when they cannot find space after dropping an overloaded bag on my head trying to get it into a space it was clearly not going to fit in.

    Getting Medallion means I would have a much better chance of getting up front and not having to deal with the scrum in the back.

  11. Biggest reason is picking preferred seats followed closely by upgrades.

  12. Mike Stuben

    I want to be a PM, so I can get upgrades for myself and my wife when we travel.

  13. I want DL Medallion because It would be my first Elite Status on anything (Besides milepoint).

  14. I want PM, I could gift status to my husband, who flies Delta a great deal more than I, though usually not enough.

  15. Justin S.

    I want DM for an excuse to try a new airline out of IAH

  16. Branson B

    I want to be a PM so I have a chance at upgrades and lounge access!

  17. Nathaniel W

    Because when I do fly I fly Delta and it would be nice to have at least a small chance at sitting up front.

  18. I want to be a PM or DM so that I can make changes to award tickets and get the perfect BusinessElite itinerary!

  19. Scott M.

    I would love to be Medallion for all the elite perks, since I have never earned elite status on any airline.

  20. I want to be a Delta Air Lines Medallion
    DM because I need a cool luggage tag to go with my Delta Points and Flyer Talk luggage tags.
    And, of course, a better shot at upgrades than I have with my PM status out of DTW.

  21. Robert Lamb

    Because I want more chances to fly upfront.

  22. I want to be Delta Gold Medallion because it gives me high enough of a status to expect some upgrades, double miles on flights and SkyTeam+ for lounge access when traveling partners.

  23. I would like to have Medallion status so that I could try the Delta product again….comfortably.

  24. I want to be PM because the Platinum desk has helped me salvage more than one trip! Its good to have someone in your corner.

  25. Jordan Diaz

    I want to be a Delta Air Lines Medallion
    PM because Delta has truly reason since I switch alliances (due to relocation); unfortunately, I am a real loyalist to the airline I chose and it’s hard to re-start “the climb” up tiers and make the switch, but PM would be the equivelent of what I current have on another airline.

  26. I want to be a Delta Air Lines Medallion DM because I want to be recognized when I fly on China Airlines and other SkyTeam carriers.

  27. Because it would make Delta flights more enjoyable.

  28. I want to be a Delta Air Lines Medallion (FO, GM, PM or DM) because it’s easier to find cheap travel to exotic locations when you’re not beholden to just one airline; if I had Delta status that meant having lounge access, checked luggage, and just an all around more comfortable experience, I would take advantage of some of the cheap South America fare sales that AeroMexico is putting on.

  29. I want to be a Delta Air Lines Medallion because… it’s always nice to have more choices of airlines where you have elite status to be treated better in case of irregular operations.

    (I did read your stipulation to use first and last name, but I wish to use my normal handle on BoardingArea blogs. My email address should make reasonably clear that I’m not manufacturing extra email addresses to participate in contests.)

  30. I want to be a Delta Air Lines Medallion (PM) because I get free economy comfort seats!

  31. I am already DM with Delta, and I always strive to renew my status for many reasons. #1 (obviously) is the upgrades!!

  32. Nathaniel H

    I want to be a Delta Air Lines Medallion because upgrades make the weekly travel grind that much better!

  33. I want to be a Delta Air Lines Medallion (FO, GM, PM or DM) because…I never win anything and want to learn about how to earn free trips with points and miles!

  34. Because as a Kryptonium medallion I can look down at silvers with righteous condemnation as I walk to my first class seat.

  35. Tim Hong

    I am currently GM and utilize the same day flight changes–definitely would love to be Platinum or higher to increase my chances of getting upgraded.

  36. Then the wings of angels will carry me everywhere I need to ever go, and I will be fed fine caviar and finer champagne as I’m carried to my destination.

  37. I would love to fly Delta Medallion for the upgrades and lounge access

  38. Francisco T

    I would love to be a Delta Medallion Member. This would allow my family a better way to travel. It’s all about the upgrades!

  39. Cliff Y.

    Because I am currently trapped at DFW waiting for an AA for HNL and if I had Delta status I would already be enjoying the beaches of Waikiki

  40. Because I might be able to use my 300,000 orphaned points for more than a roundtrip from JFK to Indianapolis.

  41. I’m GM now so I’d want to be PM so I could do free award changes/cancellations, making my miles more flexible.

  42. I would be proud to gain Delta Medallion status, as I’m proud to fly an airline that values its guests and treats everyone with respect.

  43. Colleen T

    I get upgrades, board earlier, get bonus miles, and fly to Europe several times a year for 100K bus class seat – thanks to Rene and all i’ve learned – I’m a PM this month with a 13,220 MQM trip to California from Florida and I can give 15K to my husband from the Delta Amex Bus. card to make him Gold.

  44. I want to be a Delta Medallion because I would love to have lounge access.

  45. I want to be a Delta Air Lines Medallion DM because I want to be able to gift GM status to my wife.

  46. Because I want better service when I use my Delta miles to fly to Asia.

  47. I want to be a Delta Medallion, just so i can say i am a DM!!

  48. I want to be a Delta Air Lines Medallion PM
    because I have loved having it for the first time during the last year

  49. I love Silver Medallion and want to jump to Gold. I’m going to be about 5K MQMs short and need to figure out how I’m getting the rest of the way! Maybe the Delta Amex Reserve card?!

  50. I want to be a Delta Air Lines DM because of the uber benefits it bestows, esp compared to the FF programs of other airlines!

  51. 3 reasons UPGRADES, UPGRADES and did I say UPGRADES

  52. Traveling without status takes a lot of the fun out of it…

  53. I want to be a Delta Air Lines Medallion DL because I can enjoy free same day standby, no baggage fees, free upgrades and access to DM customer service hotline.

  66. I want to be a Delta Air Lines Medallion because I love to fly Delta and Love to read the Delta Points Blog

  67. I want to be a Delta Air Lines Medallion
    (FO, GM, PM or DM) because…I’d like to get more upgrades.

  78. Upgrades, and sitting in the front of the plane for once, would be so sweet!

  79. I want to be a Delta Airlines Medallion DM because that’s the only kind of diamond that’s my best friend! I’ve told my husband – no jewelry, only plane tickets! Unfortunately, he’s not much of a traveler. So, theoretically this contest could save our marriage! 😉 And it IS on my birthday too – that’s gotta be worth something, right?

  80. Carol H,

    I want to be a Delta Air Lines Medallion (FO, GM, PM or DM) because I have arthritis and
    having lounge access and the possibility of upgrades to business or first-class would make flying so much more comfortable. To be able to join Randy on my first-ever Mega DO would truly be an adventure of a lifetime!

  86. Michael V

    I’m 15% shy of becoming a Million Miler, but I can’t bring myself to fly them anymore without much expectation of upgrades.

  87. I’d like DM so I can have another shiny piece of plastic in my wallet.

  88. Lewis F.

    I want to be a Delta Air Lines Medallion
    (FO, GM, PM or DM) because I have no status on Delta.

  89. Because I need an alliance with an airline besides American, and you seem to be so pleased with Delta!

  91. Daphne L

    I would love to have Medallion status because I have no status anywhere and status is what it’s all about!

  92. I would love to have Medallion status because I would be able to get elite benefits flying both Delta and Alaska, which is almost as helpful as my AS MVP status that gets me benefits on AS, DL, and AA (but I’m not going to requal for next year, sadly.)

  93. I would love to have Delta Medallion status because I have really enjoy traveling. I don’t mind coach on long flights, because I feel so lucky to have the opportunity… But, my eyes have recently been opened to the world of loyalty programs, cc bonuses, and reward flights, and now I must make my flying experiences even better!

  94. Pingback: Win a Seat to the SOLD OUT Star MegaDO 4 Contest - MilesQuest

    Would love to be a DM so I could get First Class upgrades.

  99. I want to be a Delta PM or DM because I have become spoiled by the upgrades and trip disruption assistance from being a PM last year and this year.

  100. DM would be appreciated for the upgrades. Just getting EC gratis would be nice, though.

  101. Five years is a long time. But, pessimisim aside, we are all going to keep finding ways to travel the world through incredible deals. Especially by communicating great finds instantly throughout our unique, if diverse and sometimes fragmented, community. Its always going to be too hard for the average traveller to follow this fastinating pursuit.

  102. For the special treatment. I enjoy boarding early, greater seat selection and of course the upgrades!

  103. I want to be a Delta Medallion because I LOVE upgrades!

  104. Joe Juarez

    I want continuing being a PM, so I can get through security using the TSA Expedited security line, board the plane before the masses and select Economy Comfort seats when making reservations. The rest of the benefits are gravy!

  108. I would love status so when my Christmas DCA-MSP trip is delayed or cancelled (like it is every year) I have a dedicated line and a little weight..thus likely not waiting for my phone battery to die while on hold, and actually getting me there before Christmas.

  109. Waiting in line stinks. And because I love to sit up front.

  110. I want Delta Medallion status because I’ve never had status with ANY airline before. I think the biggest benefit would be the upgrades and lounge access.

  111. I want to be a Delta Air Lines Medallion (FO, GM, PM or DM) because….I like medallions. They are shiny and I like shiny things. Oh yeah, and I like elite status.

  112. I want to be a Delta Air Lines Medallion because I love all these shiny cards

  121. Graham H

    I want to be a Delta Medallion because I’ve enjoyed being one for so many years, I can’t imagine what it would be like if I wasn’t! At PM this year after being DM for the previous two. There is a difference and the DM perks are worth the BIS miles. ;-D

  123. I love upgrades! and it should be a lot of Fun!

  124. Danny F.

  125. I want to find a way to leverage my CSA miles with decent lounge access on a TA flight.

  126. I want to be a PM because I love to fly up front and can only afford a seat in the back.

  127. I’m a tall guy and I need a premium class seat on international flights just to feel like a human being. I also have the Amex Delta Gold so I’d like to maximize my benefits!

  128. Kristina K

    I want to be a Delta Air Lines Medallion member because of the upgrades!

  129. So I can status match to a better airline. 🙂

  141. Spencer K

    I want to be a Delta Medallion Gold member for the Skyteam Elite Plus status.

  143. I want to be Delta PM so I can gift upgrade status.

  144. sendbillmoney

  153. Claire F

    I want to be a Delta Diamond Medallion because my husband is Platinum (Black AmEx perk) every year and I am Gold or Silver and he gets all the upgrades. We travel together and I would like to get upgraded before him even if it is just for one year!

    I want to be a Delta Air Lines Medallion (PM) because my hub is DTW, and I love the free upgrades!

  160. Delta is the only US based airline that still flies to Russia directly from US, so if you have to visit your homeland, might as well be Delta in style

  162. I want to be a Delta Air Lines Medallion (DM) because of the upgrades, free checked bags, bonus miles, targeted promotional opportunities, flexibility in tickets changes, preferential treatment and…hey, who doesn’t enjoy some status!

  167. Because I want an upgrade and even though I’ve had silver and now gold they re not worth a pinch of s—. One time in 30 yrs of using this darn airline–DL– and only 1x upgraded.

  168. I want to be a Delta Air Lines Medallion because I want the upgrades, the exclusive perks and just simply the status. I know it’s lame but I do :p

  171. I want to be a Delta (DM) Medallion because of the lounge access

  172. Larry L (In NYC)

    I like the upgrades. I was getting about 50% hits even as a silver when I was flying back and forth to Albuquerque a lot a few years ago. All the travel was to visit my dad who was terminally ill — the extra comfort (and, especially, the drink before take off) made a hard time a tiny bit easier.

  173. I’d go for the gold to get upgrades, free checked baggage, and waived/reduced ees

  174. deanna c

    I want to be a platinum medallion for the RDM bonus and free international economy comfort!
