UPGRADE TO FIRST CLASS FOR AS LITTLE AS AN ADDITIONAL $49 EACH WAY AND ENJOY MORE LUXURY ON BOARD.
My first thought, of course, was Tens of Dollars upgrades.. is Delta managing by doing what United does?
Then of course I realized, the holidays, they’re simply saying ‘demand for our premium cabins falls when business travel dries up over Thanksgiving’ so let’s pitch first class to leisure travelers and recognize that the spread in pricing between coach and first class may shrink during that period.
The way you maximize your chances of an upgrade is to fly when business travelers aren’t flying — avoiding Monday morning and Thursday and Friday evenings especially. But that also includes, just fly over the holidays. Unless of course Delta manages to sell all the seats.
