My advice is to watch the F cabins on line at Delta. We've had very good luck generally, upgrading as GMs with 800MSUs, but if you see the flights getting tight, you could grab a seat with a NAMU.

We just upgraded our trip this coming Friday-Monday with NAMUs, as some of the segments were tight, and we've also locked in F seats on our trip to SNA the following week. Both trips were looking tight on some segments (open F seats down to 4 or 5), and well, it seemed like a reasonable way to use the NAMUs. We'll each earn another set shortly, and aren't really sure what we'll do with them, since we should hit PM about the same time.

We found GM was a lot more valuable than SM - congrats and hope your experience is as good as ours has been. I'm sure we'd not have bothered to try to make PM if we hadn't been pretty happy with the mid-level.
