Delta’s blocked middle seats policy will expire on April 30. That was part of the news announced yesterday along with some great MQM, MQS, and MQD bonuses.
Some people are understandably nervous about getting back on planes. But if you’re really concerned about physical distancing and need an open seat next you on Delta flights, we have a solution that might help you.
Use a Companion Certificate to Book Two Seats For Yourself!
Maybe you’ve attended a social function and been your own “plus one.” (Hey, we don’t judge.)
The same principle applies here.
Thanks to the Delta American Express Companion Certificates, why not be your own plus one on a plane — and put the “invisible you” in the middle seat?
These four Delta Amexes offer cardholders Companion Certificates starting the second year of card membership:
- Delta SkyMiles Reserve Credit Card from American Express
- Delta SkyMiles Reserve for Business Credit Card from American Express
- Platinum Delta SkyMiles Credit Card from American Express
- Platinum Delta SkyMiles Business Credit Card from American Express
Plus, whenever your Companion Certificates are close to expiring, this is a potentially great way to get some value out of them.
Now, you will have to do a little leg(room?) work to accomplish this. René did a great job in this post of how to get ‘er done — and then what you (and, um, your invisible twin) must do when your trip starts.
But if you prize legroom, can’t get a seat you really want, want to hog a bulkhead or exit row, or just don’t want to sit immediately next to a stranger, then this is certainly an option to consider.
