Virgin Economy Delight boomed on Delta

I flew Delta economy delight last week booked on delta and got a 50% MQM bonus for $150 extra. Earned 6,000 additional MQMs on that flight. So if you book on delta.com or the app for a VS codeshare flight, check the economy delight upgrade price / MQM bonus. Can get real cost effective MQM bonus

Can you elaborate please?

Did you book via Delta but on a Virgin Atlantic flight in Economy Delight?

How much did you spend, and where did you fly to/from?

VS Economy Delight fares (V booking class) earn a 25% MQM bonus (not 50%) as well as 25% RDM bonus and 25% miles flown as MQD. None of this is particularly news as these earnings have been in place since April 10th, 2018. VS Economy Delight fares book into Comfort+ seats when booked DL metal codeshare flights. VS codesharing on DL metal for itins beyond LHR is still pretty limited. Been booking VS Economy Delight fares for close to two years now to JNB as MQD runs.
