Delta has announced that they are extending the booking classes of Companion Certificates for Delta Reserve Credit Card Members. The enhancement came into effect as of June 21, 2017, and will apply to holders of the Delta SkyMiles® Reserve American Express Card (Terms Apply) and the Delta SkyMiles® Reserve Business American Express Card (Terms Apply). Cardmembers will be able to use their Companion Certificate to book Delta Comfort+ tickets. This is in addition to the usual main cabin and First Class that cardmembers can use their Companion Certificates for.
Companion Fares/Certificates are one of the most valuable perks in the points and miles world. While arguably one of the most lucrative is the Southwest Companion pass, the Delta Companion Certificate is not far behind, and Delta has worked hard recently in making improvements to its Companion Certificate. These benefits can be very lucrative if you know how to use them well, and can strategically plan to get the most out of them; each airline has its own type of Companion award with its own terms and conditions. You need to compare each program and decide which fits best with your travel and earning patterns.
It is great to see Delta acknowledging its premium cardholders and extending an extra perk to holders of the Delta SkyMiles® Reserve American Express Card and the Delta SkyMiles® Reserve Business American Express Card. When you consider the annual fees and the fact that it is a Comfort+ award, we can only hope Delta will, in the long run, extend this benefit to holders of the Delta SkyMiles® Platinum American Express Card and the Delta SkyMiles® Platinum Business American Express Card.
