Since I’m a Delta Silver Medallion I try to fly them as often as possible. The tease of free upgrades (when available) is a powerful draw. But, perhaps in part to my last minute flight changes, I’ve yet to get a single upgrade on this trip. It’s leaving me feeling a little "un-special" considering how many miles I’ve logged on Delta in the last year. So many miles, in fact, that I expect to get notice in the mail shortly that I’ve made it to Gold Medallion.
Still…if some of those upgrades don’t start coming through I may start giving more emphasis to ticket price (Delta is rarely the cheapest) again.
