Delta makes it easier for members to receive Gold status

Accelerated program allows members to earn raised status in only three stays

TORONTO, Jan. 26 /CNW/ - Delta Hotels and Resorts is pleased to announce its latest promotion for members of the brand's guest loyalty and recognition program, Delta Privilege.

Delta Privilege Gold status is normally achieved after five stays or 20 room nights.
