I was Gold for 5 months this year on my way to PM. I ended up with an upgrade percentage of 53.57% (15/28) compared to 34.78% (8/23) in 2017 (and 0.00% (0/2) as a FO in 2018) and 40.00% (4/10) in 2016 when I was FO. I also only missed C+ on one flight. I felt that the access to free SDC was a nice perk as was the better recognition and treatment by SC agents, gate agents and phone agents when I needed help. Sky boarding on single class planes was nice too. It's definitely a better level of service. Most of the airlines seem to feel that elite tiers really start at the Gold level and that the Silver level is essentially Credit Card+.
