I booked 3 1st class award tickets atl to bzn 4/2 and back 4/9 several months back for 80,000 each. I then reached Silver medallion status. There are plenty of open seats out and back in 1st. Had I known Delta was going to give me silver status I could have perhaps booked economy for fewer points and then upgraded. Anyway to change this and try it now? Any other ideas for benefiting on this trip from the medallion status?
