Upgrade Insight for Thanksgiving 2009

What are my upgrade chances on the weekday before Thanksgiving and the Sunday after? Iím thinking about using an AA FC award ticket on Sunday if I donít have a good chance at an u/g on DL. Iím guessing I would have very good shot (80%+) on Wednesday? Have you seen first class sell out around Thanksgiving in the past?

ATL-DFW 5:40 p.m. Wednesday 11/24/2009
DFW-ATL 6:46 Sunday 11/29/2009 - (PM on a K Fare)

I appreciate your help.

Welcome to FT, VU08.

I've never missed a Thanksgiving upgrade, be it as a Silver or Platinum (my 4 weeks of being a Gold fell in October). Shouldn't be an issue - it's a lot of leisure travellers who don't have elite status that are flying at this time.
