Unreal. Thought delta airlines was known for their customer service lol story is I used my company’s (Deloitte) promo with delta to sign up for silver medallion before my flight to avoid the baggage fee. I did it about 12 hours before the flight thinking that would be enough time for the system to process, but it ended up taking a full 24 hours
