Would love an opinion on this one. Here are the facts.
I am a DL gold. I bought a T fare to go from BDL to SFO via ATL. Traveling Thurs Oct 21 in the afternoon with a 5 pm connection to SFO. Coming home Sun night on the redeye. So..... What are my chances at dinner and drinks!

Slim to none, and slim just walked out the door. ATL-SFO is notoriously tough for upgrades, and 5 p.m. is peak business traveler time. The odds of a Diamond sitting in coach is higher than a Gold on a T fare clearing on that route/time. It also doesn't help him that Diamonds and Platinums on award tickets now get priority over Golds on all (non-full Y) paid fares.
