Prebooked Reservation then making next status level?

I have a question. What happens to prebooked reservations when status changes.


I have a couple of trips booked for later this year. I booked them when I was GM and making PM this week on my next flight.


As i understand when booking a reservation as a PM i can choose the c+ seats right after booking usually.

Will I be able to pick comfort seats immediately on the prebooked reservations after I quality for PM?

Platinum status will be awarded 24 hours after your flight points are awarded. At this point go in to each future reservation and uncheck then recheck upgrade requests.

In the past, some folks reported better results after removing and then reapplying the FF number after status was increased. It can also help to log out and log back in again. Unchecking and then rechecking the upgrade request resets the time stamp, so do this ASAP after DL recognizes the new status.

Note that you will not officially be PM until the day after your qualifying flight.
