I did something similar to this knowing I was trying to game the system and it worked as I had hoped. Booked on the 5:55 PM DTW-LAX, I SDC'd to the 7:50 at 4:50 PM knowing it was delayed already by about 40 minutes per the website and the screens at the airport. As soon as I did that, I was able to log in, check in, get the delay message, change back to the flight I was originally booked on at 5:55 and get the Y fare IRROP upgrade. Before I did this, I was 8th on the list for 4 seats and was not looking good for a upgrade.
