Delta SkyMiles


A couple of my family members are understandably concerned about traveling during the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic. They recently booked a trip using the companion certificate from my Delta Reserve Credit Card from American Express — and are now considering postponing.

They were curious about what would happen to their reservation if they do, indeed, forgo their trip.

So I contacted Delta for some answers.

One of my family members enjoyed a fun surprise the other night.

Her Delta Medallion status drops this week from Platinum to Gold. While booking a Delta trip for this summer, she lamented she could no longer select Comfort+ seats shortly after booking (a perk reserved for Diamond and Platinum Medallions, inventory permitting, for free as an a but instant “upgrade”).
