Delta still lists all three options for upgrade on their website, including the legacy program known as Mileage Upgrade Awards. (

They refer to these three programs as:
  1. upgrading with miles during booking:
  2. upgrading with miles after booking on
  3. upgrading through Reservations (Mileage Upgrade Awards)
The third option is the traditional program. Options 1 and 2 are, I think, both pay with miles programs. From language on the website, there are certainly discouraging it, but it still seems to be an option, though it's very possible the website has just not been updated.

Also, option 3 (mileage upgrade awards) remains the only option that can be used with partner airlines, so that alone leads me to think that the View From the Wing article is incorrect.
