Delta is bringing SkyMiles Members some of the most coveted artisan gifts and goods from around the globe — and a jump on 2025 Medallion Status.
Welcome to the Window Seat Shop — a curated pop-up experience designed to bring Delta SkyMiles Members a taste of what the airline’s top destinations have to offer while giving shoppers the opportunity to earn Medallion Qualification Dollars (MQDs) toward 2025 Status.
Beginning Nov. 14, the Window Seat Shop is open to customers traveling through John F. Kennedy International Airport’s Terminal 4 and online at delta.com/windowseatshop. The online shop is exclusively available to Delta SkyMiles American Express Card Members on Tuesday, Nov. 14, and opens broadly to all Members on Wednesday, Nov. 15.
“Our SkyMiles Members’ loyalty means everything to us, and experiences like these are representative of what our Members can continue to expect from us,” said Delta Chief Marketing Officer Alicia Tillman. “We want them to feel the same excitement we feel when we’re able to give them the opportunity to have new experiences, whether that’s taking them directly to an adventure in a new location or bringing the best products from some of our top destinations to inspire future adventures directly to them.”
The shop gives Members access to carefully curated goods from small businesses in exciting destinations across Delta’s vast global network, including:
- Skateboard decks from WAFFLESNCREAM, Nigeria’s first skateboarding company aiming to support young Africans interested in extreme sports and skate culture.
- Quirky, cult-favorite real-bread lamps from Japanese artisan Yukiko Morita.
- Hand-crafted pottery from Brazilian gallery Elysian Collective.
- Natural, organic skincare from CHILL Cape Town, inspired by the botanicals of South Africa and the African continent.
Members can also shop for unmissable experiences, like the opportunity to hit the court at Madison Square Garden for a shootaround before settling into a courtside seat for a New York Knicks game or flying a private hot air balloon over the southwestern U.S.
Delta opened the shop with help from New York icon Carmelo Anthony, a proud Platinum Medallion Member and small business owner.
“I’ve been a Delta customer and SkyMiles Member for years, so being part of The Window Seat Shop’s opening event was a full-circle moment,” said Carmelo Anthony. “As a business owner myself, I’ve always felt that my values and Delta’s have aligned. The Window Seat Shop is a perfect example of how Delta helps to elevate small business owners from around the world, while also providing one-of-a-kind experiences for its SkyMiles Members.”
Shoppers who are not SkyMiles Members can join the program simply and quickly in person at JFK and online at delta.com/joinskymiles.
Delta is dually focused both on differentiating the customer experience and deepening its relationship with its SkyMiles Members. Recently, the airline announced modifications to the Delta SkyMiles Program, enhancing program elements and adding several new benefits.
In addition to the program updates, Members can continue to take advantage of Delta SkyMiles favorites they know and love, including miles that don’t expire, no blackout dates for Award tickets on any Delta Air Lines-operated flight, and fast, free onboard Wi-Fi available today on most domestic flights, and rolling out on all flights by the end of 2024.
