If you really want a Delta upgrade, book this flight

DL 487, JFK-SDQ.

7 hours before departure I am still by my lonesome up front.

You just need to be willing to arrive in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic at 1:14 am.

Coming back Monday at 2 am is positively crowded in comparison.



  1. NYC-SDQ is notorious for native Dominicans who will pay tons of money to fly, but will not spend a $1 more than they have to. I.e. Never pay for an upgrade, complain about checked bag fees, fight for every pound to bring random stuff….

    Even Jetblue flights are usually sold out, without a single extra legroom seat booked
