Flights through Delta hubs... sometimes the first half of the plane is all Platinum or Diamond.

I guess, though it's surprising given the route.

I feel your pain man. I’m a Platinum with the Reserve card connecting through SLC en route to a tiny city out West tomorrow...currently in a middle seat and barely in the top half of the upgrade list on the second leg. I clearly understand why Delta is doing it but first class monetization is making elite status largely pointless.

Yeah I have suffered that as a platinum. Didn't expect the same as diamond. And I know I sound all shallow and self centered right now... But...

Life goes on

entitled people! at least mid seat gets both arm rest

I got diamond last year by Sept. Flying SEA to DTW and ATL mostly...would regularly get upgraded to Comfort once I hit Diamond (about 2/3 when Platinum)..but only first class upgrades were on very off peak flights.

Your fault for booking economy. Don’t blame the airline, blame the flyer!
