The Good – Delta has just announced two new transcontinental routes; first between LAX and DCA, second between BOs and SFO. Both will get the benefits of the lie-flat seats and full Delta One service.
The Bad – Neither of the new routes will be eligible for unlimited complimentary upgrades, not even for Medallion elites.
So…whilst it is very good that there will be more nonstop options for travellers and with a much more comfortable configuration, however since they’re being categorised as transcon – you won’t be able to use your complimentary upgrades. The only way to get into the Delta One cabin, will be via Regional or Global Upgrade Certificates instead.
But as frequent flyers, we have to take the good with the bad most of the time ?. Download Ahoy and book your next flight with us for seamless travel search, booking and management for roadwarriors.
