Delta has announced a “Reclaim My Status” program where SkyMiles Medallion members can reclaim their status after a major life event that impacts their travel. The decisions will be made on a case-by-case basis. Possible events that would be applicable include becoming a parent, recovering from serious illness, sustaining serious injury, changing jobs or careers, caregiving for a family member, getting a degree and others. One a traveler is ready to start traveling again, they can submit their request at delta/com/reclaimmystatus. Delta will decide in five days to two weeks and if approved, the applicant will get three months of Medallion status. Those who meet minimum travel and spend thresholds for that status tier over the three months will retain the status.
