DL and AS tix

i booked an itin through AlaskaAir that includes one segment on AS metal and a tcon on DL metal because it was way cheaper than through DL directly. now i'm wondering if there is any way (something like NW's b.u.m.p. program) to get DL to take over this reservation completely so i have a shot at the upgrade and don't have to wonder if the miles will post. (apparently AS wants me to wait 6 weeks for miles credited to DL to post...)

any experience ?

DL does not have anything like NW's BUMP. It usually takes no longer than 2 weeks for AS miles to be credited to SkyMiles.
