Value in getting the Delta Reserve? I’m essentially trying to maximize chances of getting upgraded on a flight to Hawaii. Award ticket from MSP - Platinum Medallion. Not a corporate ticket. I already have the Platinum and could use the MQM

It gets you Sky Club access if you don’t already have an AXP. The card is third in the upgrade waterfall, after status and fare class. Your issue on an award ticket is that it’s a lower fare class than anyone else, so even with the Reserve, the card would only be a tiebreaker among other Platinum Medallions on award tickets. Do you have any RUCs you can apply? On routes like MSPHNL where Delta One tends to sell out, that’s probably your best bet.

When I pointed out that she compared my sister only to my brothers, I earn more than them, and both my sister and I are at top firms in our fields, she said, "...mm". Later she said how happy I am when I'm not working and I should quit to raise kids (no kids yet)
