    Flying on a V class ticket ATL-HNL. Is it possible to upgrade to First Class using my miles, even though I didn't book with Delta directly?

    Per the DL website, log into DL, look at your reservation, and the site will show if you can upgrade with miles on that fare. If you have enough miles, you can "pay" the difference rather than get an 'upgrade'. They will note the differences in the FAQ for upgrades.

    You can't upgrade from a V class ticket, it has to be on a K class or higher with miles.

    The chart does not change the requirement for a K+ fare to UG with miles.

    The OP would need to "buy up" to a higher coach fare or hope for an offer of UG'ing online via miles.

    In fact, it was only to avoid mistakes in the future
