Tired of AA bullshit... Best steps to take to maximize the chances of upgrades with Delta? 1st step will be a status match (Plat Pro with AA). Any and all useful advice will be greatly appreciated. 👍

Delta reserve not worth it. Delta Diamond for 3 years. Will always depend upon your routing and fare classes. Always great up chance via RDU and CVG, DTW and MSP good, LGA and JFK okay, ATL toughest (esp ATL to northeast)

PwC had a fast track whereby you could get Platinum Medallion in 16 segments. See if they're still offering it

OP, the great thing is that it wasn't a status match. You can save your ammo!

Honestly just match statuses and you are good to go

Does your company have a fast track? Otherwise a match and segments are your friend. http://www.delta.com/content/www/en_US/skymiles/medallion-program/skymiles-medallion-status-match-challenge.html

Is it worth getting the Delta Reserve credit card to be even higher up on the upgrade priority? I was reading on the Delta website that having that CC is criterion 3.

If you're in a major Delta hub, good luck with that upgrade unless you're diamond.

@S1, I'll ask about 1, I am Plat pro with American so a status match will still make me platinum medallion

AA PLatinum Pro has to compete with all EXP passengers for upgrades, if you fly busy routes, your chances to get one are none, unless you choose alternate days. You will find a similar scenario with Delta, sorry to pop that bubble.

I would be flying out of LAX. Does any have any experience with this airport? I am just terribly frustrated with American and maybe going with Delta would not make things any better, IDK...

Delta Amex will let you earn 20k MQMs a year

Last year, My girlfriend was making 80k while I was making 200k so I took her out to dinners and took care of the groceries etc. Basically made sure it’s an equitable relationship. She got a new job this year and is now making 210k (more than me) but still expects me to pay for all the dinners and groceries. I’ve already talked to her about this but just resulted in argument. Is there any coming back from this situation to make this equitable relationship or is break up the only option here?
