Delta upgrade certificates are trash. 14 of 16 first class seats available, and yet there are no "upgradeable" seats available! What's the point of selecting the certificates?

Almost 90% of the seats are available... it's not an unreasonable expectation.

You realize it doesn’t all come from the same inventory, right? Learn about fare buckets

Meh. I think OP is right to be pissed. They should put more seats (or all like SPG used to do for rooms) in an accessible inventory

Went through this whole ordeal about 6 months before my trip. By my count, they only release 2 per flight when it’s far out and then more come off as they get closer to the departure. I made them look up multiple airport combinations both to and from as well as different dates. It took about 6 calls, each 30+ minutes before I was able to find something with 2 seats.

Their revenue management system is pretty complex nowadays — that sounds like a delta one transcon, which will definitely sell out closer to the date (think about when us consultants book). Like D1 says, it’s best to just call. I actually prefer it to AA system which technically shows it online but takes *forever* to search.

I have a pending I-485 and my case was recently “ready to be scheduled for an interview” about 2 weeks ago.

Is there any risk to my GC application if I travel abroad and get a H1b stamp to re-enter the US?
