Delta Air Lines can traces its origin back to May 30, 1924 where it first started out as an agricultural aerial crop dusting company called Huff Daland Dusters. Their operations expanded to Peru where passenger service was also added to their business model. It was renamed Delta Air Service on September 13, 1928, referring to the Mississippi Delta. It continually expanded operations and is now one of the world’s largest global airlines. They’ve created a new way of defining cabin class, offering 5 types of seating on board their airplanes. Delta is known for providing comfort on their trips, offering things such as Comfort+ seats, slippers for flights to Japan, and chef-created menu offerings on their flights.
Frequent flyers of Delta can acquire SkyMiles on their trips. Unlike with many other rewards programs, SkyMiles have no expiration date. Asides from flying Delta, additional SkyMiles are awarded to users of U.S. and select international Delta SkyMiles credit card users. SkyMiles can be redeemed for First Class upgrades, exclusive events, and destinations with SkyMiles Experiences. Their website also features an Award Calendar allowing you to search for the lowest price possible for your trip. It also features a comparison shop, so you can compare a flight’s price in terms of cash or in miles. If you qualify with enough SkyMiles you can redeem your miles for Medallion Member status. This loyalty program provides numerous benefits to its members such as unlimited complimentary first class upgrades, unlimited upgrades, preferred seating, priority wait list, increased mileage earnings, discounted fares, waived baggage fees, priority check-in, and other numerous benefits, including crossover rewards in Hertz Car rental and other partner hotels. Membership benefits have different classifications and increasing benefits depending on the amount of SkyMiles accumulated. Frequent flyers are assured comfort from constant patronage with Delta.
