I know someone out there that works for Delta must know the answer to this question.
I booked an itinerary from LAX to Europe for myself and two friends and upgraded them. We were confirmed for ATL-MAD,FCO-ATL,ATL-LAX but it doesn't look like LAX-ATL is going to clear.
I am a Platinum medalion, one of my friends has the same ranking with Continental and the other has no elite status with any airline. We are all on the same itinerary. My question is, would we all be upgraded (or not) based on my status or the person who has no elite status? Or, would we all be upgraded individually based on our status? Just curious how this works.
Thanks in advance to anyone who can clear this up for me.
