Delta Award Ticket - Will I Lose Or Gain MQM's?

Fri Jun 25, 2010 1:09 am

Hi all,

The title says it all. I'm thinking about booking an award ticket on Delta using my sky miles, and I'm very close to silver medallion status. If I book the award ticket, will I lose or gain MQM's? Stupid question I know, but any help would be great. The answer didn't appear to be clear on Delta's sky miles pages.

Thanks!

Zero MQMs go either way on a typical Delta award ticket - you won't gain any, nor will you lose any. In the case of irregular operations, you might get rebooked into Y and get some, but don't count on it.

Either way, MQMs only go down once a year - on January 1 when they reset the clock for the start of the year.

thanks - I have a sky club membership also - I'm assuming I would still be able to access the club despite being on an award ticket?

Yes. My parents were on award tickets the other day going to Hawaii and had no problem accessing the Sky Club. As long as you have the means to enter (Year pass, Day pass, AmEx Card, etc.), then you access the Sky Club

I've used the SkyClub under too many circumstances - flying on Delta rev tickets, flying on award tickets, flying other airlines, not flying at all - never an issue getting in.
