when did you apply? Were you targeted? Matched from what and what did you get?

not targeted
Mosaic
Platinum

Question is only if I will end up flying Delta at all :)

Aside from @Something Fishy, anyone else who was NOT targeted use Mosaic to be matched to Platinum?

What about using another airline?
Yes I was bh

4 roundtrips or 8 one-ways
So If I fly twice lax-dtw-jfk-dtw-lax for example that would cover all 8 one ways? Or will they count that as only 2 roundtrips?

Booked my first flight just now. Received platinum from a Mosaic match.

Immediate upgrade to comfort and standby to first.

Would have been cheaper and better seats on JetBlue, but need to start my challenge...

A companion?
Do they know AA EXP and United Plat can bring everyone at booking, and no need to wait for an upgrade.
Absurd!

I am Plat on DL, and it would sure be nice to use this to upgrade to Diamond. PM me if you have an example of the two screenshots that they would be looking for from AA or another carrier... :) TIA

Same here. I nearly always fly in parties of 4-9 and the one complimentary companion is comparatively stingy. Perhaps they do allow the rest of the party to select preferred seats, like UA allows for silver and gold members. If they do, one could technically book self +1 in the last row in comfort and the rest of the party in first row in preferred. Granted, it's a pain but perhaps could be an option for some.

May need to cancel my first Delta challenge flight :-(

Booked Monday to SJU and just saw now that you can't enter PR without a negative PCR test (rapid not acceptable) and there is no way to get same day results on a PCR test.

Upsetting.
