Medallion Choice benefits

  1. What was the expiration date for the 2010 medallion choice benefits? I recall looking at my account during November 2011 and saw that I had still to make my elections for two years worth of choice benefits, both platinum and diamond. I thought that I had made the elections for my 2010 benefits that had to be done by 12/31/2011 and that I had until some date in 2012 to make my 2011 elections. I made my elections on 11/23/2011. Now when I look at my account on line, it states that those elections that I made were my 2011 elections. When I called the Diamond 877 number, they told me that the deadline for the 2010 elections had been either 12/31/2010 or 2/28/2011. Thus, the elections that I made 11/23/2011 had to have been my 2011 elections, not my 2010 elections. What recollections do you have on the expiration dates--or better yet, documentation?

    I can see why you're confused and to be honest, it's a little confusing for me too.

    The T&C for Medallion Choice state this:
    Last year I jumped from F.O. (or "Tin Elite"; either way it was nice being close to home much more often throughout the year prior) all the way up to DM all before December 31st of 2011. Based on my reading of the T&C above, I would have thought that since my status changed in 2011 I'd have to make my selections before today (February 28th, 2012). Turns out that -- according to what I see right now on delta.dumb -- I do not have to make my selections until February 28 of 2013, since the status year they seem to be truly counting is 2012.

    It may be that when you qualified in 2010, Delta counted your "status year" as 2011 so in that case you have to make your final 2011 today.

    Either way, yes, I sympathize with how you're feeling.
