Delta just came out with a video highlighting a day in the life of their elite services team. Yes, this is the team that will pick you up in a Porsche and take you to your plane!
The service is available in:
- Los Angeles
- Minneapolis/St. Paul
- New York JFK
- New York LGA
The program began as a trial at Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in 2011 and expanded to Los Angeles, New York-JFK and Minneapolis-St. Paul in 2013. During a typical day more than 100 high-value customers are transferred from gate-to-gate at Delta’s largest hub in Atlanta. Transferring select SkyMiles Diamond Medallion customers with Porsche vehicles is just another way that Delta delivers exceptional customer service for its most valuable flyers while providing a unique travel experience.
In order to qualify to use the service, you need to be a Diamond Medallion and spend an undisclosed amount with the airline. Normally, they target the service at high spenders who have either tonight connections, long distances to travel in the concourse, or disrupted travel plans. Most Diamond Medallion’s probably won’t ever even experience the Porsche ride, so it’s interesting to see how the system operates in the video Delta broadcast on their YouTube channel.
