Is there a way to manage preferences for seat upgrades with delta, so they only upgrade you to window seats or not at all?

You can't. It's a big complaint with delta that you can, in theory, go from a good window seat in coach to a middle seat in coach plus. Oh sorry "comfort plus." I'm struggling to understand the comfort part, it's the same old shitty seat.

I don't think that does what you want. It will give you an aisle seat when one is available, but I don't think it stops an upgrade if aisle isn't available.

OW1 has it right. Upgrades are based on the availability of inventory in the cabin. Your seat preference is only used to auto-assign a seat once the underlying upgrade has cleared.

There is no "dont 'upgrade' me to middle row 'comfort' seat" unfortunately. Probably because we would all check that box as a collective double bird-flip to Delta's complete douchebaggery with elites in past years.

DL pretty much hosed up the upgrades to Comfort+. I've lost aisle and windows in the back to center seats in comfort. WTF do you think the center seats were empty DL? No one wants to sit there!

Dear American Airlines, Your extreme fear of slight weather amuses me. Surely you feel pathetic when your brethren airlines, even Southwest, are still operating while you scream “the sky is falling!!"

After taking Southwest all year to get companion pass and having low status with United, I must say United seating for the majority is MUCH worse. Anyone else notice this?

First, Delta accidentally let some of us on another flight. Then said we were grounded for 30 min bc of weather, and now we are de-planing. Sigh. #thetravellife

From me to you all, and may the odds be ever in your favor. I think Calls on Delta would be good with the all the delays on the 747 Max affecting other airlines via delays and shortages.

United Airlines vs American Airlines for long term frequent flier affiliation? I’ve spent ~4 years with each because different senior bankers preferred diff. airlines. In Chicago, so both work here

GMAT in a week. I've come from a 640 (Q44, V35) about 3 weeks back to a 700 (Q47, V40) yesterday. Any tips on pushing it to 720+ in a week, specifically to boost verbal (SC) more? Anywhere I can review harder SC rules perhaps? For quant, I plan to do some more of TTP (only been able to cover ~25% of it). FWIW, the GMAC test didn't record my last V answer since it got hung so might've lost a point because of that but, obviously, I can't be sure.
