Regarding the possibly illegitimate upgrade -- as much as I like my upgrades and believe proper priority should be upheld at the gate, I would be fine if DL took an upgrade from me and gave it to someone passing the MM mark on the flight.

Or just publish the rule that they get UG no matter what...

No special recognition, no car service, no gift bag, no upgrade...no problem...
Now all I need to do is change my FT profile, and select a gift from the website.
From somebody who is hub captive and primarily does the ATL - TPA route and maybe gets an upgrade once a year (flying on a Wed at 2:00pm), I would be a tad upset if I was 6 out of 6 seats available and they gave it to somebody else because they got MM that day. I should get MM next year and I figure I might (maybe) just get an extra "Have one on us" coupons If it were shown as a published benefit, then I would agree whole heartedly...
