Delta's 12Status program, rewarding Seattle Seahawks fans for their loyalty, returns for the fifth year

​​​Program members have earned over 431 million miles over the last four seasons, which can be used on Delta's nearly 70 daily flights to metros with NFL teams from Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA)


Seattle Seahawks fans will be rewarded for their loyalty for a fifth year, as Delta Air Lines — the Official Airline of the Seahawks — re-launches its popular 12Status program for the 2021-2022 football season, after a one-year hiatus due to COVID-19.​

"We love rewarding our 12Status Seahawks fans for their loyalty like no other airline does, with over 430 million miles and counting," said Tony Gonchar, Delta's Vice President – Seattle. "Fans win in more ways than one with the team's success, allowing them to use their miles to seek new adventures or reconnect with loved ones. Whether you want to travel and cheer on the Seahawks from the road or take a trip elsewhere, Delta has you covered."

Originally launched ahead of the 2016 season, 12Status rewards Seahawks fans for the team's performance on the field with miles through the Delta SkyMiles program and other opportunities. For the 2021-2022 season, the program for all new and returning 12Status members will include:

  • One mile awarded for each Seahawks passing yard during all home and away games
  • Opportunity to attend an exclusive viewing party on Sunday, Nov. 14, to watch the Seahawks take on the Green Bay Packers*
  • Grand Prize: Six members (plus one guest each of their choice) will be awarded travel and accommodation to see the Seahawks vs. Los Angeles Rams on Sunday, Dec. 19**

Miles awarded through the program don't expire and can be redeemed for travel across Delta's global network and travel with our partners, purchase Delta Vacations packages, seat upgrades, and more.

As Seattle's largest global carrier, Delta offers more than 145 daily departures to nearly 50 destinations, including service to popular international cities such as Amsterdam, Cancun, Paris, Puerto Vallarta, Seoul and Tokyo as well as year-round service to multiple cities in Alaska and Hawaii. Fans can also cheer the Seahawks on the road with almost 70 daily flights to well-known NFL destinations like Atlanta, Detroit, Los Angeles and Minneapolis.

Other program milestones include:

  • 3.1 billion total miles redeemed by members since they joined the 12Status program
  • 114,030 Award Tickets flown among 12Status members who have earned miles since the program launched
  • 536 unique Award Ticket destinations flown among 12Status members since the program launched

"We are excited to bring back the 12Status program for its fifth season," said Amy Sprangers, Chief Revenue Officer, Seattle Seahawks. "12Status celebrates Seahawks football and rewards our passionate 12Status members. Delta Air Lines is a fantastic partner who continues to offer exceptional experiences to our fans year after year."

SkyMiles membership is free, and is required to join 12Status. 12Status is open to Washington State residents, who can sign up for or re-enroll their 12Status membership at to begin earning miles week one of the season. Existing members from previous seasons are encouraged to renew (re-enroll) their membership on the site before the first regular-season game on Sept. 12.

For the fifth consecutive year, Delta's SkyMiles program secured the No. 2 spot overall and outperformed all global airlines in U.S. News & World Report’s annual ranking of airline loyalty programs, leading the industry with the most generous Status extensions in the market as travel continues to recover. Medallion Members may keep their 2020 Status through Jan. 31, 2023, giving customers more time and flexibility to resume their travel.

Delta continues to give customers even more ways to reclaim the joy of travel, all underpinned by our commitment to the Delta CareStandard's science-backed health and safety efforts.
