JetBlue wants to be the shoulder for all of the heartbroken Delta loyalists to cry on.
For a limited time only, the New York-based airline will give Mosaic status to Delta SkyMiles Medallion Members who are looking to take their loyalty elsewhere.
You’ll want to act fast, as the offer will only be available until October 31, 2023, or when 30,000 eligible people take advantage of the promotion, whichever comes first.
Here are the details of JetBlue’s mission to pry customers away from the Atlanta-based behemoth.
Get JetBlue Mosaic Status By Matching Your Delta Medallion Status
If your Delta Medallion Status no longer means much to you after Delta’s recent drastic changes, JetBlue is giving you the opportunity to earn automatic loyalty even if you’ve never flown with the airline.
What makes this even more of a great time to join is that, unlike Delta, JetBlue’s recently overhauled TrueBlue loyalty program actually makes it easier for its members to earn points and elite status.
Here’s what JetBlue equivalent your Delta status will earn you:

While this is indeed a very generous offer, the status match will only last for a period of around 2 months.
JetBlue promises that every application that is eligible will be matched by November 6, 2023. That shiny new Mosaic status will then expire on December 30, 2023, unless you earn enough Tiles or have The JetBlue Plus Card or The JetBlue Business Card by the expiration date.
The number of Tiles required is as follows:
- 6 Tiles to remain Mosaic 1
- 12 Tiles to remain Mosaic 2
- 24 Tiles to remain Mosaic 3
- 30 Tiles to remain Mosaic 4
Those on the East Coast Stand To Benefit Most
This is a great gesture from JetBlue, there’s no argument there.
However, if you live on the West Coast or fly out of one of Delta’s major hubs in Atlanta (ATL), Detroit (DTW), Minneapolis (MSP), or Salt Lake City (SLC) where JetBlue has a minimal presence, this status match is pretty useless to you.
The true winners here are frequent Delta travelers who use JetBlue hub airports in Boston (BOS) and New York (LGA and JFK). If you’re based in these areas, switching allegiance to JetBlue for domestic (and even some international) travel would really make sense if you’re feeling cheated by Delta’s changes.
The only thing that might put a Delta elite off of making the switch is the fact that JetBlue passengers don’t ever get lounge access, even when flying its Mint business class product.
If you’re an ex-Delta fan and living on the East Coast near an airport that sees lots of Delta and JetBlue flights, this status match may just be the fix you’re looking for to get over your impending separation from Delta.
