Delta Airlines B737

Delta’s First class cabin of service is the premium cabin on domestic and on shorter international routes. Travel changes are permitted but restricted based on the fare class purchased.  Seat assignments are allowed at time of booking throughout the First Class cabin.  All First Class tickets enjoy First Class zone boarding.

For Delta marketed and operated flights you’ll earn standard MQM, MQD and RDM earnings based on your ticketed fare class (what you originally paid for), not what cabin of service you flew in.

The following matrix gives you your earning potential of elite status while flying in First Class as a Member, Silver Medallion, Gold Medallion, Platinum Medallion or Diamond Medallion on Delta marketed and operated flights.
