THIS is the day we have been waiting for since back in May this year when I posted about the changes to the Delta medallion upgrade order, that is, as of today with the soft launch you can request to have your +1 that is on the same itinerary as you be eligible for upgrade at your elite level.
This simply means if you have Diamond status and your +1 with you has NO status you are both considered Diamonds as far as upgrade priority goes.
Now clearly a ton more goes into the mix other than your elite status but that is one of the TOP most important factors on the long list including things like holding the Delta Reserve card as one of the tiebreakers.
Since this is so new I would love some feedback on how it is working for you. Also, since today is not the “official” launch day some elite reps may not know about the soft launch. If that is the case simply HUCB and get a rep that knows that today you CAN request it.
EDIT: Update – It seems instant Diamond and Platinum C+ “upgrades” with your +1 is working live on Delta.com as well.
