Despite SkyMiles redemptions on partner airlines taking a big hit, there’s actually some decent news today — for Delta Diamonds.
TPG’s Zach Griff reports that Global Upgrade Certificates (GUC) — a Choice Benefits options — now allow holders to upgrade from coach to business class. Previously, the best they did was upgrade you to premium economy.
First class is still off-limits, though.
A few other notable changes:
- Upgrades to Air France now clear into Z class. They were O, which didn’t have as much inventory as Z
- Discounted Delta coach fares are now applicable for GUC upgrades on Air France. It was Y, B, or M, which are rather $pendy fares. Zach says, “For Air France-operated flights sold by Delta, the following coach fare classes are eligible for an upgrade to biz: Y, B, M, H, Q, K, L, U, T, X or V. Additionally, all Air France premium economy fares booked on either Air France or Delta can now be upgraded into business class with a GUC.”
- Air France or KLM tickets sold by AF, KL, or DL may now be upgraded
- GUCs can be applied to Air France flights of at least 1,750 miles
Global Upgrade Certificates (GUC) are a fantastic benefit. It’s sometimes difficult to find available inventory but these changes make it a little easier to get somewhere nice — in more comfortable seats.
