Delta SkyMiles® World MasterCard® to offer priority boarding on Delta flights

Like we mentioned last week, a lot of credit cards will be adding new features or changing with the end of summer. First we had the news from the BMO World Elite last week and now we are pleased to bring you this news.

As of tomorrow (August 26th) all current and future Capital One® Delta SkyMiles® World MasterCard® customers will benefit from Priority Boarding on all Delta and Delta Connection flights. Priority boarding (or Zone 1 boarding) means cardholders and their travel companions may avoid the long general boarding queue, and boarding earlier means a good chance there will be overhead room for your carry-on baggage.

This is great news for non-elite SkyMiles members who carry this card as many of Delta's flights to Canada tend to be on smaller regional jets and not Delta's mainline jets. We all know that overhead bin space is at a premium on CRJ's and such so while it is not a huge game changing benefit as a whole in the Canadian credit card market it definitely will make this card more attractive to Delta flyers.
