The flights are all DL designated.

Thanks in advance
Sorry, but you are likely to be out of luck unless and until the "merger" closes (and even then a further wait is possible).

DL does not upgrade NW elites except maybe in the non-ordinary circumstance where DL needs to upgrade someone for operational reasons and a NW elite gets selected.

[FWIW, NW seems upgrade DL elite far more frequently than DL upgrades NW elites -- but even this is usually a non-ordinary result.]
