Delta SkyMiles Gold Medallion members will soon receive Sky Team Elite Plus benefits more on par with similar level elites at other airlines. Effective March 1, 2011, Gold Medallion members will receive:

  • Access to SkyTeam partner lounges (including the Delta Sky Club) when traveling internationally
  • Priority baggage handling
  • Guaranteed seating on oversold long-haul flights when paying full fare economy and booking 24 hours in advance

Good move. Wonder why it took this long?
