Delta Status Match: Fail?

by Efficient Traveler on August 29, 2011

I’m a Continental platinum and Gold Delta Medallion. Applied for Platinum status match on Delta. But apparently if you already have status on Delta, you’re ineligible. I was hoping with the “new” United that Delta would give case-by-case exceptions, and allow me to participate in the match, flying 26,000 miles within the next 3 months to go from Gold to Platinum, but NO! Despite repeated emails and a phone call up to the supervisor level, who flat out told me “NO”, Delta doesn’t appear to want my loyalty that I’m willing to give away. C’mon, Delta!

For those of you lucky enough NOT to have elite status on Delta, check out their status match program here.
