Delta Lifetime Diamond Medallion Status
Delta Air Lines offers its loyalty members four tiers of elite status: Silver, Gold, Platinum and Diamond. Frequent flyers can also earn lifetime Million Miler Status based on total Medallion Qualification Miles (MQMs) earned over a Member’s lifetime.
But there’s now a new lifetime tier that you can earn. Until now you would get lifetime Silver Medallion status for reaching 1 million miles, and go up to lifetime Platinum status when you reach 4 million miles. But Delta has added the ability to earn Lifetime Diamond Medallion status as well if you get to 6 million miles.
But flying six million miles in not an easy feat. You would have to fly 240 times around the globe to reach that number. Diamond Medallion status normally requires 125,000 MQMs per year. So if you are flying just the minimum qualifying miles for Diamond Medallion status, it would take you 48 years to get to Lifetime Diamond. But it can be done in a shorter time as well.
Diamond offers exclusive benefits such as the highest Complimentary Upgrade priority and Premium Boarding. You can also enjoy benefits like a complimentary CLEAR membership to ease through airport security, customizable Choice Benefits with Delta Sky Club access, Rollover MQMs and more. Million Miler Medallion Status is for the earning Medallion Member only and cannot be gifted or transferred to another Member. You can see full details about Diamond Medallion Status here.
Million Miler Status is already hard enough. Getting to six million MQMs takes real dedication and a whole lot of time being up in the air.
