Status Matching on SkyTeam carriers


Lifetime Status on SkyTeam carriers

From http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/miles...ounge-etc.html

Flying Blue (Air Europa, Air France, Kenya Airways, KLM, TAROM) - After 10 consecutive years at Platinum level, you are entitled to a lifetime Platinum Card. In that case, whatever your mileage accrual and the number of flights you complete each year, you stay a Flying Blue Platinum Member (from the FB website)

- http://www.delta.com/help/faqs/skymi...gram/index.jsp

How is Million Miler status determined?
Million Miler balances and status are based on total Medallion Qualification Miles earned over a member's lifetime. This is different than Lifetime Miles, which counted all redeemable miles, and not Medallion Qualification Miles. Members who reach one million Medallion Qualification Miles are currently awarded complimentary annual Silver Medallion status. Members who reach two million Medallion Qualification Miles are currently awarded complimentary annual Gold Medallion status. Members who reach four million plus Medallion Qualification Miles are currently awarded complimentary annual Platinum Medallion status.

There does not appear to be a complimentary annual Diamond Medallion status.

Korean Air
Morning Calm Premium Club (SkyTeam Elite+) - 500000 flown miles on Korean Air and/or SkyTeam
Million Miler Club (SkyTeam Elite+) - 1000000 flown miles on Korean Air and/or SkyTeam

SkyTeam Mileage Upgrades

From http://www.skyteam.com/en/Why-SkyTea...-Redeem-Miles/

Available on purchased international, published, full fare Economy Class reservations on the following airlines:

Aeroflot - S, Y
Aeromexico - Y
Air France - Y, S
China Southern - Y
CSA Czech Airlines - Y, M
Delta - Y
KLM - Y, S, X
Korean Air - Y

The full fare requirement means if you search around you can often find discounted business class tickets at cheaper prices, but may be useful if for example your employer policy is only to allow the purchase of economy class fares. Air Europa, Alitalia, Kenya Airways, TAROM and Vietnam Airlines don't as yet participate.

The flight must be marketed and operated by the same SkyTeam carrier, as code-share flights are not permitted. Call the award reservation line of your frequent flyer program where the miles will be deducted. The agent will verify eligibility and confirm the upgrade if seats are available.

Just what I was looking for, thanks! But I had to search for it. Is there a moderator who can make this sticky?

It took me just half a year to do that - but here it is, and it's sticky... ;-)

And thanks Supersonic Swinger for compiling this list!

Newbie here: SIN-PEK award booking using DL miles

Hello. I am trying to fly SIN-PEK using DL award miles. Seems to be many possible routing options. Using DELTA.COM how do I search and subsequently ticket? Possible using the DL mobile website? Mileage required?
