In 2022, Delta and American Express launched a stunning limited edition credit card that caught our attention: a stylish, black Delta SkyMiles® Reserve American Express Card and Delta SkyMiles® Reserve Business American Express Card crafted from metal sourced from a retired Boeing 747.

This Boeing 747 Delta Reserve card design was quickly snapped up due to high demand from cardholders.

2 years later, we have received exciting news from Amex that this revered card design is back — and in an updated version. For a limited time only, Delta Reserve card and Delta Reserve Business card holders will be able to request this exclusive card design.

Now, let’s get into the details.

Limited-Edition Boeing 747 Delta Reserve Card Is Back

American Express and Delta Air Lines have announced a refreshed version of the limited-edition Boeing 747 Delta Reserve card design that will be available starting today, April 25.

The new limited-edition card design features a white glossy finish inspired by clouds and was created from the metal of 2 retired Delta 747 planes that were scrapped in 2017.

The new design will be exclusively available to cardmembers of the Delta Reserve card and Delta Reserve Card between April 25 and June 5, 2024, while supplies last.

Fortunately, Amex has announced that it will produce twice as many Delta cards with the Boeing 747 design as available in 2022, allowing more card members to receive the limited-time design.

This new card design comes after Delta refreshed its Amex credit card lineup, including new statement credits for cardmembers.

Is It Worth It?

Both the Delta Reserve card and Delta Reserve Business cards are top-tier Delta Amex cards that are similar depending whether you’re looking for a personal or business card. However, there’s a premium price tag and benefits associated with each.

The Delta Reserve card has a $650 annual fee (rates & fees) with benefits like complimentary Delta Sky Club® access*, the ability to earn a companion certificate each year upon renewal of the card, up to $240 in Resy credit (enrollment required), up to $120 in rideshare credit (enrollment required), and more.

Meanwhile, the Delta Reserve Business card also has a $650 annual fee (rates & fees). It offers similar perks like a complimentary Delta Sky Club® access* and the ability to earn a companion certificate each year upon renewal of the card, plus up to $240 in Resy credit (enrollment required) and up to $250 in Delta Stays credit (enrollment required).

*Effective 2/1/25, Reserve Card Members will receive 15 Visits per year to the Delta Sky Club; to earn an unlimited number of Visits each year starting on 2/1/25, the total eligible purchases on the Card must equal $75,000 or more between 1/1/24 and 12/31/24, and each calendar year thereafter.

Bottom Line:

If you’re a Delta frequent flyer and are considering either of these premium Delta cards, it’s important to evaluate each annual fee carefully and not let the attractive, limited-time Boeing 747 design overshadow your decision.

Final Thoughts

The highly anticipated return of the refreshed design of the limited-edition Boeing 747 Delta Reserve cards has arrived. Best of all, Amex has announced that they intend to produce twice as many cards of the new design as they did when it debuted in 2022 as a result of the excessive supply that occurred during the previous iteration.

Existing cardholders who want the new design should reach out Amex immediately to inquire about the possibility of converting to the limited-time Boeing 747 card art in the event that supplies run out again.

However, it should be possible for new cardholders to choose the limited-time design during the application process!
