    I am based in Singapore and make 1 or 2 international trips a year to US / Japan.
    The flights I take allows me to earn Silver status on my own.
    I recently come to know that due to my huge corporate account, it appears that I can get a Gold status BUT
    1. No more Bonus miles (not even the 25% Silver).
    2. I will still get Sky Priority
    3. Delta Lounge access (since I fly international even though in Economy)
    4. Bigger discount in Economy Comfort seats
    Should I take up the offer?

    Be careful about how you evaluate the benefits. Starting in May, DL is eliminating third party lounge access for elites when traveling international in coach. This would include SkyView lounge (which is in PP) in SIN and the contract lounge DL uses at HND but not the two DL SCs at NRT (or the AF and KE lounges at NRT).

    GM normally gets SkyPriority and free USA domestic EC seats, half price for international EC.

    Are you sure about the lack of bonus miles? I've never heard of that condition with a comped status, but maybe your company negotiated it individually.

    BTW, is this one time only gifted GM or will it be permanent regardless of your travel patterns?
