FTU Upgrade & Gogo Wifi Giveaway

Our site may contain affiliate links. Read Advertiser Disclosure policy here.

We are only 5 days away from the FTU in Tampa Bay, Florida this coming weekend. That can only mean one thing, First Class upgrades are starting to clear for all the frequent flyers heading to Tampa this weekend.

I love free upgrades to First Class, especially when they are on award tickets. Since I’m a Delta Medallion (Platinum the easy way) I receive complimentary upgrades to First Class, even on award tickets. So I wasn’t totally surprised that my upgrade down to Tampa cleared at the 5 day window, but it was unusual given the amount of frequent flyer junkies heading down to Tampa this coming weekend.

Gogo Giveaway

One of the best things about flying Delta airlines is that you are almost guaranteed to have wifi on your flight, unless you are flying some flights in or out of Grand Rapids. You can even see the little wifi signal in the picture above showing that your flight has wifi. We’d love to hear from you on your upgrade to First Class and wifi this weekend.

To enter, simply leave a comment in this post (even if you aren’t going to FTU) answering the question below.

  • Did your upgrade clear for this week and does your flight have wifi?
    • (if you aren’t flying this week, share something in the comments anyway)

Giveaway Prizes

We’ll select 5 winners who will each be emailed a code valid for a free internet session onboard a Gogo enabled flight. Only one entry per person. We’ll randomly select the 5 winners from comments on Wednesday at 7 PM ET.

Thanks for reading and participating in our small contest.

  1. I am a Diamond Medallion and I am flying on Thursday,(3 days from now) and my upgrades have not cleared yet. Seating is available and the legs are JAN/ATL and ATL/LGA. This has happened on a couple of other occasions and just makes no sense.

    All of my flights have Wi Fi.


  2. My upgrade never clears, I am a ‘tin’ medallion (delta amex gold card). Gogo is on all my flights and I use it.

  3. I wish I was going but I’m working this weekend. Have a great time for me and hopefully my next flight will have wifi!

  4. Flying next week, and I pretty sure that as a silver medallion I won’t clear. But at least we have exit row seats. I could use the wifi – going to New Mexico.

  5. Incredibly enough, I’ll be flying into Tampa tomorrow but for a conference in Orlando instead, so no FTU for me.

    Let’s see how many frequent flyers I run into on the way there. 🙂

  6. My upgrade never clears (cause I have no status). I do find that the GoGo access takes some of the sting out of traveling with the rest of the cattle though.

  7. Wish I was flying to FTU but when I do fly I like to chat with friends. So far only one upgrade for me this year 🙁

  8. Flying to Orlando on F9 to get to FTU, so no upgrade this time 🙁 Fares were crazy into TPA every time I checked.

  9. I’m not going to FTU but i fly to SJC via MSP on Thursday. I’m a Platinum and i cleared the upgrade to 1st on my 2nd leg, MSP to SJC but not the 1st from LGA to MSP. I’m not sure why even though 1/2 the 1st class seats are still open. Thoughts? And yes, WiFi all the way to San Jose!

  10. Not going to FTU, but sending this via GoGo on a flight right now. And I’m coach, so my upgrade didn’t clear

  11. Going to FTU this weekend. Flying from LAX on AA, but since I have no status I doubt I will get upgraded 🙁

  12. I’m not going to FTU Tampa (went to FTU DC) but I would love Gogo for my flight to MEM in a few weeks!

  13. No, United FIRST CLASS booked as FULL (A-319). And yes, United sent a GoGo alert Email that my SFO/DFW flight is Wi-Fi equipped!! (Someday, I too hope to make it to the FTU. Look forward to reading your reviews.). Thanks!!

  14. This weekend, first time ever for free upgrade-economy to economy plus. Have lots of CC miles, but no elite status. Gave the upgrade to my wife after boarding the plane!

  15. I am traveling this weekend to MCO. I have 1 of 2 segments upgraded so far. I’ll try and attend FTU for 1 day. All flights have Wifi. Gogo would be nice!

  16. Flying to FTU and my upgrade seem to be headed towards “battlefield” (haven’t cleared in advance), recently minted Gold (combination of flying and spend). Would benefit from Wi-Fi pass 🙂

  17. Unfortunately I can’t be at FTU this weekend. Hopefully there’ll be another one in the near future I’ll be able to attend.

  18. I’m a silver medallion and my upgrade hasn’t cleared yet, but I’m hopeful! The first class cabin is only half full.

    There is wifi on the plane, so I’ll use that pass the three hours until I get to Tampa!

  19. Not going to FTU, but am going to Toronto for work. And sadly, no upgrades (yet) — but they never seem to clear for me at the window, only at the gate (if ever). And yes, GoGo on all flights!
