Delta is offering its loyal flyers the opportunity to gain Silver or Gold status through February 2012. This challenge will run from April 1 and June 30, 2011. The challenge is based on segments, so for example, a round-trip flight with a layover counts as 4 segments — more than half way to earning Silver status.
Earn Silver Medallion by flying six Delta or Delta Connection segments
Earn Gold Medallion by flying twelve Delta or Delta Connection segments
Delta status gives you bonus miles on all flights and the opportunity for domestic upgrades. Make sure to register prior to your flight and only qualifying paid flights will count towards this challenge (flights redeeming miles will not count).
THIS IS A TARGETED OFFER THAT WILL NOT APPLY TO EVERYONE — WILL NEED TO REGISTER TO SEE IF YOU QUALIFY
