Delta Choice Benefits Page is Open

I'm sorry if this was already posted...

Delta's Choice Benefits selection page for Platinums and Diamonds is now open. I used it last night and it recognized my upcoming Diamond status. It must be working, since my companion is already showing gifted Gold status on her account.

I selected my 2009 bonus miles in Dec and still have not seen anything posted. I am not sure what to select for 2010.

Are the system-wide upgrade certificates good on all fare classes?

Same for me! Woohoo. When I hit Platinum and Diamond this year will I get the opportunity to select from the benefits twice? Are the benefits realized when you hit these milestones or just at year end?

Looks that way. Darn!

"Q. As a Diamond Medallion member, can I select one item (such as the bonus miles) twice?

A. No, within the Diamond Medallion selection, you can only select an item once within the year."

Anyone know about this? Would like to hold off on my decision for a while.

Do the "system wide" upgrade certificates work on AF or KLM, I guess I mean on other Skyteam carriers, or are they only Delta?

It looks like they finally got the programming to support this done properly, as compared to the cumbersome way last year's was done. However...

1. As a current Platinum, becoming Diamond on Mar 1, I was expecting to get a pick from the Platinum list now, then get two picks from the Diamond list when I became Diamond. I'll need to look back and see if there was anything other than FT speculation to back that up.

2. I will miss being able to gift one family member Silver and another Gold, like I did last year. If they would let you give two Golds as your two Diamond gifts I'd be OK with that.
