I can tell you from my experience, being first in line at the podium maximizes your chances. You're right that it's up to the GA, but if you come up there, act respectfully, and have your backup options in hand, it makes their lives easier and you will likely be the first one to be bumped, regardless of status. This was the case for me (no status on DL currently), and I was their #1 , and hence, the last one to board. This is usually the case when I try to bump on AA and DL, but it all comes down to how you approach the situation.
