    Thanks for posting -- they almost got all of their information right -- but left off one important step --- is the plane a 50 seat CRJ

    Since most of my time is on a 764, I forget about the CRJ tubes... ;)

    Does DL use time of ticket purchase, rather than time of check-in, for battlefield upgrades? Most departure management systems don't know date of ticket purchase, but rather time of check-in.

    As a silver medallion, I love seeing how close I am to being relegated to the sardine can!

    I believe it's time of upgrade request, which is typically time of ticketing.

    It is fairly state-of-the-art for DL IT for that information to be handed off to the departure management system.

    DL IT is an odd mixture of state of the art, 1960s tech, and hopelessly broken.

    2.5 months in KBL has disrupted my flying patterns. :) All but 4 of my TATL flights have been on 764's this year, but there have been some duplicates. :)
