My personal choice would be to book it all in 1st class and not stress about upgrades. Then again, you can book C+ and at least have a decent shot at at upgrade. Or, lastly, you can just slum it super cheap in evil BASIC E class with ZERO chance at any kind of upgrade of “side-grade” even (got HOOUs?)!
What I would do is take Friday off work. Then take the early AM flight and enjoy quality Centurion DFW lounge time. Then off to HardEight BBQ. Then back to the Centurion in the morning before my flight back to Atlanta on Saturday.
Any, here are the 1st class numbers:
7,732 MQMs at 6.6CPM
Bookable on Delta.com via Kayak.com
UPDATE: Also from MSP at similar prices:
I have included the Google Flights or Kayak links and for those of you new to this, 1st log in to your Delta.com SkyMiles account and THEN you click the above links and it will, after you choose flights, send them over to Delta.com. Very simple! – René
