SkyMiles Members can now use miles to upgrade from a purchased ticket on Delta-marketed, Virgin Atlantic-operated flights using Mileage Upgrade Awards in one of two ways:
- Upgrade from a purchased Virgin Atlantic Economy ticket to Virgin Atlantic Premium Economy or Virgin Atlantic Upper Class
- Upgrade from a purchased Virgin Atlantic Premium Economy ticket to Virgin Atlantic Upper Class
“Giving the option to our customers to upgrade on Virgin Atlantic is yet another benefit of our joint venture partnership and one more way Delta is giving greater flexibility to our Members as they travel,” said Sandeep Dube, V.P. — Customer Engagement & Loyalty.
Delta markets dozens of Virgin Atlantic flights worldwide. The new upgrade options are similar to Mileage Upgrade Awards on Air France and KLM and is another way Delta is expanding how its Members can use their miles, which never expire, to enjoy their travel experience including Award Travel, premium drinks at the Delta Sky Club, Delta Private Jets and more.
Delta customers can check prices and availability, and book an upgrade by calling 1-800-323-2323. Medallion Members can use the “contact us” section of the Fly Delta app for a dedicated phone line.
