Hello everyone. I was hoping to get some answers on using my miles to upgrade a planned trip to Thailand from the New York area in November. I am a DL gold member but my traveling partner in not an elite yet. I want to buy a M class fare. So here are my questions.
1. If upgrade seats are not available at the time of booking will we be wait-listed and upgraded with miles automatically, when the seats do become available.
2. Alot of people say "Delta miles are worthless" So should I expect no seats to become available for the upgrade no matter what. ( Then again they say the same about United, American..... and so on!)
3. Will I still get the mileage bonus with the M fare if upgraded. Elite and regular?
4. Does the I fare(discounted business) get you the bonus mileage?
Any and all help is appreciated!!!!!
