    Last week I wrote about Delta's really innovative new upgrade program. Most people don't realize that Delta also has a private jet division, whereby they operate a fleet of 66 private jets. It's pretty common for private jets to fly without passengers as an "empty leg" segment. Basically a private jet might be in Washington but be booked out of New York the following day. So that flight from Washington to New York would be what's known as an "empty leg" flight, and wouldn't have any passengers. What Delta is doing is offering select Medallion members upgrades to private jets. The day before departure, select Medallion members will be offered an upgrade at a cost of $300-800. The rollout of this will be limited, and it will be focused on Delta's East Coast hubs. As a Medallion member I wouldn't expect to see an offer like this any time soon, given how many Medallion members there are and how few opportunities there will be.
