Delta and Amex launch metal credit cards made from two retired 747s – Business Traveller


Delta and American Express have brought back their popular metal credit cards made out of parts from retired Boeing 747 aircraft.

The limited edition cards are available for new and existing US-based Delta SkyMiles Reserve and Reserve Business cardholders until 5 June (subject to availability).

They are made from 33 per cent metal from two of Delta’s retired jumbos, and feature a cloud-white colour scheme inspired by clouds, along with details of the history of both aircraft, including their tail numbers, first and last flights, and the number of miles flown.

It’s the second time the two companies have collaborated to launch credit cards from retired 747 aircraft, following a black design launched in 2022 and made from 25 per cent metal from Delta Ship #6307.

At the time of the first launch Delta said that the partnership had followed “a year of research and development to ensure the airplane metal could work as a functioning credit card that stands up to daily wear and tear”.

Commenting on the news Prashant Sharma, VP of loyalty at Delta Air Lines, said:

“At Delta, innovation and experience are at the core of everything we do. Each card carries the legacy of countless journeys and embodies the spirit of exploration that drives our customers and all of us at Delta.

“When combined with the recently upgraded benefits, these cards provide a nod to our storied past and symbolize the elevated experiences our customers can expect in their future travels.”

The Delta SkyMiles Reserve American Express and Reserve Business American Express cards have an annual fee of $650, and feature benefits including a companion certificate each year after renewal, and complimentary access to Delta Sky Club and The Centurion lounges.
