Forgive my question, I'm new to being Gold Medallion on Delta. Got a Tampa to ATL flight in the morning, leaving at 6:20 AM, currently showing 0 open seats in F, and I'm already #6 on the waiting list (and I sure I will be dropping as more people check in.) If I get to the airport early enough, can I go to the game for the 5:30 flight, and ask to go stand by, but only if I can clear the upgrade, or is it a take it or leave it without knowing if I will clear? I don't want to give up my aisle seat on the later flight unless I can upgrade? Should be a simple question, I just don't happen to know the answer.
