Main Cabin Fare to Premium Fare Ticket Exchange Policy   

Delta’s Main Cabin Fare to Premium Fare Ticket Exchange policy allows travel agents to rebook a customer to a more premium product, by reissuing the ticket manually using the generic waiver code and following the change and reissue guidelines listed below. The policy excludes customers who have purchased a Basic Economy fare in Main Cabin.

Below are some examples of how a customer might upgrade to a more premium product.
