For those of you who fly Delta, have you ever been upgraded to Delta One internationally without using GUCs? If so, how often?

No, it's explicitly called out as not possible, but I'm sure it's happened. Get upgraded to premium on intl flights all the time as diamond..but I've def seen business class and Delta One seats go to non revenue passengers (flight attendants)... 🙄

Delta diamond for what its worth

I’ve been upgraded on an international flight on delta (platinum), LHR-BOS. It was definitely an undersold flight, but I got into first from a regular main cabin ticket

I think they only allow that for one fare and it’s not commonly offered outside an explicit request on the Medallion line. And ridiculously expensive for the chance to upgrade! At least that’s what a travel nerd blog said :)

OpUps are possible if coach is sold out.

Many times as a Diamond from ATL-LHR when coach was full and they need my seat. Never on the reverse route.

Alright so there’s a thing called reclaim my status. If you had a reason why you lost status in the last year or two like COVID, baby, new job, etc. You need to submit some basic documentation and they give you that status for 3 months with a DRASTICALLY lower threshold to make the status permanent and even higher tiers are much easier to obtain during those 3 months. Google “reclaim my status Delta”
