Continental Airlines left the SkyTeam Alliance, a global airline alliance, in October 2009. If you are a Continental Elite member, you will no longer earn bonus miles and Medallion Qualification Miles (MQMs) when flying Delta to your locum tenens or international locums assignments. But no worries! Delta has offered to match your Silver, Gold, or Platinum Continental Elite status in its SkyMiles program. Once matched, you will receive special benefits such as:
- Complimentary upgrades
- Priority boarding and check-in
- Waived baggage fees and other SkyTeam Elite or Elite Plus member benefits
Here’s how it works: Email, fax or phone your request by December 31, 2009 to receive matched status. Be sure to include your full name, SkyMiles number, Continental Elite status, and Elite OnePass membership number in your communication.
- Email: email@example.com
- FAX: 1 404 677 2547
- Phone: 1 800 323 2323
Your status will be matched within three business days and will be good through February 28, 2011.
