As a quick follow up to this morning’s post I have another great reason to say no to a bump – an Op-Up! That is, an operational upgrade due to coach being oversold.  You see, Delta will pull medallions up to 1st before they start bumping people from coach and as you can see you get pre-flight drinks with umbrellas!

  1. I was confused by this when I read your tweet(s) about it. But after looking it up, I now realize that Medallion upgrades to Hawaii don’t begin until March 1. I thought that change had already been implimented.

  2. @LarsErikNYC – yep but an OP-UP can happen anywhere even on routes that will not have medallion upgrades like the ATL-HNL route or most international routes.

  3. What do you think of the Hilton Hawaiian Village? Contemplating staying there, and would love your thoughts.
