Just a real quick post today to remind you that TODAY is the final day to choose your 2018 Platinum and Diamond Medallion Choice Benefits. If you do not choose them they will be gone tomorrow. Need help what to choose? See this post!

Delta is again having a SkyMiles award sale for as low as 12,000 Delta points round trip.  You can see my fellow blogger Brian’s post to see the bit here.

Lastly, if you are about to drop in Medallion status and have already cleared upgrades over the next few days you will not lose your seat unless there is something that impacts your flight (think equipment change or needing to have ticket issued etc).

Safe flying everyone! – René




  1. I happy I waited until last minute to make my selection. I was wondering why I was getting executive access to Sky Clubs since early January and nobody could tell me why. I just got a notification I became Delta 360 so that perk is included. 🙂

  2. Access to KLM International Lounge in AMS. I was somewhat confused about what lounge access Delta Medallions will get in AMS. Here was my experience today. At AMS ticket counter, agent assured me that Main-cabin traveling Delta Diamonds + 1 guest can enter the new KLM International lounge between Concourse E and F in AMS. I was surprised because I thought we were no longer welcome. After walking way our of our way since returning flights to the US leave out of Concourse D, my wife and I were told that between 7:30am and 11:30am, the club is too crowded for +1 guests. Of course, this is when most passengers on US-bound flights would want to enter. After complaining, we were offered a 15 Euro voucher good at one Starbucks or Amsterdam Bread, even further away. The Starbucks and Bread near Concourse D does not accept the voucher.
