Y'all ever been jittery 30K feet in the air?! Delta Air Lines and Starbucks will get you there. A new partnership will allow customers to link their loyalty memberships for added benefits.

👩‍🎓 Delta found a way to make customers who may only fly twice a year think positively about their brand twice a week.
