As the football season kicks off, Delta and the Seattle Seahawks have once again teamed up to reward Seahawks fans and Delta customers for their loyalty. This year, Delta is adding a few new perks and reinstating priority boarding access for fans ready to cheer on their team as 12Status members.

  • Priority boarding for 12Status members in Main Cabin 1 is back! Members can take advantage of this benefit during the season when departing from Seattle-Tacoma International Airport.

  • 12% discount on Hyperice seasonal products, the official recovery technology partner of the Seahawks.

“From the field to the flight, we love rewarding fans for their loyalty to the Seahawks and Delta,” said Joan Wang, Delta general manager, Pacific Northwest. “That’s why we’re so excited to begin our sixth season with 12Status, where every member wins – Delta is ready to make this our best season yet.”

Since the program launched in 2016, milestones include:

  • 4.1 billion total miles redeemed.
  • 220,000 banknotes transported to 550 unique destinations.
  • Las Vegas being the number one exchange travel destination for 12Status members.
  • Mauritius being the furthest exchange destination traveled by a 12Status member.

“We are proud to partner with Delta to bring 12Status back for the sixth season,” said Amy Sprangers, Chief Revenue Officer, Seattle Seahawks. “This innovative program continues to provide fans with exceptional opportunities to combine their passions for travel and football and be rewarded in the process.”

As Seattle’s largest global carrier, Delta offers more than 150 daily departures to more than 50 destinations, including service to popular international cities such as Amsterdam, Incheon, London, Paris, Shanghai and Tokyo. Fans can also cheer on the Seahawks on the go with daily nonstop flights to well-known NFL destinations like Detroit, Kansas City, Los Angeles and Phoenix.
