Possible Op Up?

I've had pretty good luck lately on INTL flights with about 50% op-ups on routes JFK-EWR to EUROPE.

Now Im scheduled to fly on Wed 11/9 MXP JFK and I called to check if it was overbooked and the DL agent said it is, by quite a few in coach ( under 10 tho) and EF says J2 C1 D1 I0 S0 Y5 B3 M3 H0 Q0 K0 L0 U0 T0 E0 while its codeshare AZ (same flight) says J0 E0 D0 I0 Y0 B0 M0 H0 K0 V0 T0 N0 S0 L0 O0.

What chances am I looking at ? for either an op-up or a VDB with compensation..

Based on the numbers, it is certainly possible. That said, it's still several days out. My ATL-LGW flight went from J2 Y0 to J3 Y4 before I left last week...in the end, due to misconnects, changes, etc, we left with 3-4 empty seats...

Hope, yes...guarantee...no.

Good luck!

Possible? Yes. But your profile lists DL Gold which puts you pretty far down the possible OpUp list. Diamonds & Plats will normally be OpUp'd ahead of you.

Plus right now there are only 2 biz seats for sale so the there will be very few, if any, seats available for an OpUp on the day of departure.

Yes its possible.......I am unsure what else you want from us on this. Your chance of an OP-UP is 4.5252522525252%
