How to achieve Delta Silver Medallion status fast

For some people, it doesn’t really matter what airline they fly as long as they get from Point A to Point B. Traveling is easier and more affordable these days with all the promo fares and tour deals available.

There are people content with budget airlines while there are those who only want to fly Business or First Class. We can’t blame the latter especially if they can afford to do so. We shared Why You Should Fly Business Class but we know you have other reasons as well.

Budget vs Luxury Travel

For those into budget tourism, we have plenty of travel guides and tips here whether you want to travel to India, Philippines, Singapore, Laos, Malaysia, Thailand, or Japan. We also shared Things to Remember as You Plan Your Euro Trip and some tips for snagging an affordable deal like during Travel Tuesday and the Hopper Price Freeze program. Hopefully, our tips on where to get cheap flights and low fare airlines have been helpful.

But if you’re really only about flying business class, we recommend the fancy British Airways Business Class and Delta Air Lines—specifically Delta’s Business Class. When you go for Delta, you can even get a chance to achieve elite status when you fly Delta’s SkyTeam partner– China Eastern from New York-JFK to either of the two destinations: Sydney or Singapore. The New York to Singapore business class flight costs $2,095 while the other one is more expensive.
