I did this for a year. I swapped to AA. A321T is the best aircraft, even in coach. Decent upgrade chance to J (there is also F but no Y to F upgrade). Only 110 seats total and plenty of space. JFK only for that one. Exclusively DL it will also be JFK LAX. Tougher upgrade in my experience because of how DL prioritizes upgrades by fare class after status.

It’s honestly such a short flight that paid upgrades are not even worth it. Just get a damn aisle seat no matter what happens! Delta is still the best carrier

I’ve done both. On that route, AA is, by far. I flew it twice per week round trip. I’m also speaking as a Diamond and EXP.

As a gold you are not getting upgraded
