    Hello,

    I am trying to achieve this status, I will pay or trade miles, or grovel... I recently moved to Atlanta, I use to exclusively fly BA and have accrued many a mile with them. However, I am desperate to become a silver M.

    Would someone gift it to me? or are there any other angles I can approach this from?

    My father is a flying colonel? would that help?

    thanks!

    Welcome to milepoint mattyb2233. Do you have any status with BA currently?

    Welcome to MP, mattyb2233. Please keep in mind it violates DL's Terms and Conditions to sell or barter Medallion status.

    On the positive side. It doesn't flat out prohibit grovelling.

    If you get the DL Amex Reserve card you get 10,000 MQMs on your first purchase. Then spend $30k before December 31, 2012 and you get another 15,000 MQMs. Thus you will then be a FO.

    If you get any DL AmEx card, you get most of the benefits of Silver except for rare free domestic upgrades.

    As pointed out above, it violates DL rules to buy or sell any FF benefits, including status.

    There's been some conversation around here as to how much Silver is really worth, particularly since DL started selling upgrades quite so aggressively. Especially on trunk routes (SLC-ATL, MSP-ATL, etc.), there are many people ahead of you on the upgrade list such that it is almost embarrassing to even suggest there is a chance you'll get an upgrade. And, as pointed out, most of the other benefits are available through avenues like the AmEx card.

    DL doesn't normally do status matches, just status challenges.
