    I am a Diamond member on Delta, I had our reservation split for our trip this week so that the chances of me getting upgraded was greater. I have already been upgraded by the 5 day window. I did this so my wife could sit upfront since she has only done it a few times and I fly Delta every week and it is a normal thing for me. We are wanting to try and SDC or Standby on an earlier flight on Wednesday for our trip to Orlando, which I know SDC is very unlikely with my experience flying Delta all the time, but I was wanting to know how it will be handled since the reservation is now split to Standby with my Diamond Status for both of us on an earlier flight that day.

    Since you and wife are on separate PNRs, the SDC/SDS rules and priority listings will be applied to each of you separately. However, you should be able to ask a GA no to clear your SDS if wife cannot get onto the same flight.
