Delta Reduces MQM Earning Rate for Aeromexico Business Class

Article By:

Delta is reducing the number of Medallion Qualifying Miles (MQMs) passengers earn on select partner airline flights. Frequent flyers need to earn MQMs each year in order to qualify for varying levels of elite status.

Delta is reducing the number of MQMs earned on certain Aeromexico Business Class fares from 200% to 150%. This specifically effects the C, D, and I fares which are typically discounted Business Class fares. The more expensive J fare will continue to earn 200% MQMs.

The changes affect all flights taking place on April 1, 2018 or later. Earning rates for award miles and Medallion Qualifying Dollars (MQDs) are not being changed.
