November 5 Update: WestJet adds gate upgrade benefit, buy Delta SkyMiles status and 24 new miles & points bonuses


WestJet has added a new gate upgrade benefit for WestJet Rewards elite members. This is the first confirmed and publicized offer these members being able to get upgrades to their new business class pods on the Calgary-Toronto route. The terms say only single traveller reservations are considered so don't be alarmed if you don't get upgraded when travelling with some else! Find out more here (HT WestonC on FlyerTalk)

Starting October 31, 2019, Platinum, Gold and Silver members may be eligible to receive a last-minute upgrade at the boarding gate when seats in the next higher cabin remain open.
  • Gate upgrades from Economy to Premium is an extension of the current benefit which provides upgrades prior to check-in with the purchase of an eligible fare. A second round of upgrades closer to departure provides even more opportunities for a Premium experience.
  • Those who purchase a Premium fare on flights between Calgary and Toronto on our state-of-the-art Boeing 787 Dreamliner may also be eligible for an upgrade to a spacious pod in the Business cabin.
  •  Provided on single-guest reservations only, subject to the purchase of an eligible fare and availability of seats for upgrade. When available, upgrades will be allocated in priority order by tier, starting with Platinum, followed by booking class. Upgrades to Premium may be assigned either 1) prior to the opening of the check-in period, or 2) at the gate immediately prior to boarding. Upgrades to Business will be assigned at the boarding gate only. Terms and conditions for complimentary upgrades


Delta SkyMiles has brought back their 'Elevate your Status' offer. This offer always run in late fall and provide SkyMiles members to opportunity to pay to upgrade their elite status for the upcoming year. Find out more here.
Who is eligible for Elevate Your Status?
  • If you are a Platinum, Gold or Silver Medallion Member, you are eligible for Elevate Your Status unless you received complimentary Status for a Tier above the Tier you earned Status for.
    • Example: If you were given complimentary Gold Medallion Status, but earned Silver Medallion Status through the published requirements, you are not eligible for Elevate Your Status.
  • If you are a General SkyMiles Member, you must be within range to reach Silver Medallion Status by purchasing the maximum bundle of MQMs, MQSs and MQDs, in order to be eligible.
    • Example: If you have 12,000 MQMs, you will not be eligible because the maximum amount of MQMs that can be earned through Elevate Your Status to reach Silver Medallion Status is 12,500 and the MQMs requirement for Silver Medallion Status is 25,000.
  • If you are a Diamond Medallion Member, you are not eligible, because you have already reached the top Tier of Medallion Status.
