Delta Partner Mileage Accrual Changes Effective Jan 2018

It appears Delta will be updating their partner mileage accrual rates effective January 1, 2018 based on the new charts that appeared on DL.com this week.


As always in the Delta world, there are both positive and negative changes with the updated charts. I listed some of these changes below after briefly reviewing the updated charts for some of the partners

Positive changes include:

- KL TATL flights will earn MQDs based on percentage of distance flown vs ticket price
- Group 3 partners have increased MQMs on lower business fare classes and premium economy (i.e. MF I,C,D increased from 75% to 100% MQM)
- All AM Business fares earn 200% MQMs and redeemable miles along with 40% MQDs
- Many deep discounted fares now earn miles (i.e. VA G Fares have been added)

Negative Changes:

- Reduced RDM and MQD earning rates on many group 2 and 3 partner fare classes
- Redeemable mile class bonuses reduced or eliminated on Group 3 partners
- Reduced MQM accrual rates on some lower economy fares

Unfortunately, the KE accrual charts appear to be unchanged
