Where Have Upgrade Lists Gone?

Is it just me or are upgrade lists completely gone? Flying DTW-LAX today, and despite being a Diamond haven't cleared yet there are seats showing. Usually, after checking in online I can see my position. I am no longer offered the option. Called the Diamond line, and they can't see the list either. Is this new? A glitch? Or new/part of the "monetize first class program"--they don't even want to show us how bad the new upgrade reality is

Standby lists have not been showing for me either. IIRC, however, the phone agents couldn't tell where someone was on the upgrade or standby lists.

Thursday I went into the SkyClub and the agent had to count where I was on the list and then count the number of available seats. I would guess it is a glitch of some sort.

Quit lying and quit this charade and witch hunt that DL is doing you wrong as you are obviously not telling the truth about your status and Im not sure you are telling the truth about anything else you post.

There are ZERO DM's on the upgrade lists today between DTW-LAX which means
1) There are no DMs sitting in coach on these flights (any DMs who cleared today would be showing)
2) You are not a DM

The only monetized people sitting in F today are the ones who PAID either an F or P fare to sit there.

Flew RDU-DTW-SFO a few weeks ago and I could only view one of the flight's upgrade lists. Of course I knew I wouldn't clear on either but still

No disrespect intended, but are you ABSOLUTELY sure? Given the Delta IT problems, are you sure the computer isn't lying to you?

He's started trolling in the AmEx MR forum now, too. http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/15850943-post23.html

Tread carefully when talking about a Costco Executive Member.

I'm 100% certain otherwise i would have never made my original post in this thread. I'll prove it to any mod who wants to see my proof but I'm not posting it in a public forum

No disrespect taken

I have to agree with majorwibi, I have checked and I can confirm there is not one DM sitting in the back in ANY flight today from DTW-LAX. The OP is obviously lying about his status and should be blocked from posting on this forum. Any mod can verify this with me as well but I will not post private company information on a public forum. The last few threads by andrewpartyman should all be deleted as they are lies and portray Delta Air Lines in a false and demeaning manner.

The IT problems are not screwing up UG lists. Obviously DL still has its passenger lists and FF information. Kind of a given since every airline needs to submit SFPD to the TSA. The OP is lying and it is quite sad honestly because what he is posting isn't even close to true and posting it on a public forum makes some people believe that he is telling the truth.

Don't know why OP can't see his UG list. I just checked in for a flight tomorrow, it shows me as 1 of 8 for 3 seats. V never opened at the windows, which is a different issue. Who knows if someone wants to buy an F or an A fare between now and departure time...

OP is a troll. Please just ignore him. In fact, he will now join KLM is dead - Long Live KLM on my ignore list.
