Delta will now let you upgrade your flight to a private jet, if you’re extremely lucky
See the original posting on The Verge
Private aircraft are typically the exclusive playground of millionaires and billionaires, but Delta is rolling out a new program that might might put them within reach of the normals.
The airline is going to start offering private jet upgrades for $300 to $800 to Medallion members (Delta’s name for its frequent flyers), but only if the stars align: there needs to be an aircraft that’s going to be sitting unused near their starting point, which can happen if, say, someone takes a chartered flight and there’s no return flight planned. The upgrade “includes transportation to the airport’s private aviation area and complimentary on-board catering,” which presumably means something slightly better than a bag of peanuts.
