In response to China Southern Airlines' withdrawal from the SkyTeam Alliance, there will be the following changes to member benefits on all China Southern international flight.
- For China Southern self-operated flights, membership tiers come with benefits such as priority reservation wait list, priority check-in services, priority baggage handling, and extra free checked baggage allowance. For more details, please refer to "Table 1".
- When taking flights self-operated by China Southern Airlines or China Southern Airlines operated and code-shared flights with China Airlines and Mandarin Airlines flights, please refer to Table 2 for membership tiers benefits.
- When Paragon and Emerald members are flying on flights operated by China Southern Airlines, including code-shared flights with China Airlines and Mandarin Airlines, they may invite one passenger on the same flight to enjoy VIP lounge service.
- When members are flying on flights operated by China Southern Airlines and code-shared with other airlines, including SkyTeam member airlines, or vice versa, all the SkyTeam membership benefits previously mentioned are not applicable.
For instance, this applies to situations such as when members are on a flight from Guangzhou to Hanoi operated by China Southern Airlines (CZ8315) and code-shared with Vietnam Airlines (VN3509), or on a flight from Shanghai Pudong to Seattle operated by Delta Airlines (DL282) and code-shared with China Southern Airlines (CZ1046). In these cases, none of the above-mentioned membership benefits will apply.
