Question to those that fly Delta....

As a platinum medallion... If I book a low fare and then want to change to a better (more expensive) flight... Does Delta allow free changes 24 hours in advance (like Mosaic) or do I have to pay the fare difference?

I saw that. It says the the fee is waived, but not the fare difference.
Is that true? Do they charge the fare difference for Platinum members, that's my question?

I'm trying to book a mileage run to complete my status... I can't take the risk of having to pay the difference in cost, as the cheapest flight (just for that one leg) is $80 vs the flight I want to be on which is $500+!

How does Delta One seats compare to JetBlue Mint seats on a JFK-LAS flight... If they are both the same fare, which is the better option?

Flights that are both marketed and operated by SkyMiles Partner Airlines, Award Tickets, Basic Economy/E fare class, and promotional (including complimentary, barter, or opaque) tickets do not qualify for this offer and will not count toward the challenge.

Delta has flights from JFK to BOS for $79 each way in main economy ($49 in basic).
Flight is about 1:15
Check your Amex biz plat if you have the offer for $40 back when spending $200 on Delta ("in one or more transactions")
DL has one flight a day from jfk and one from lga
OP was looking for 3 same day r/t if i read correctly

Question:

I messed up.

I booked a 6:00 AM flight instead of a 6:00 PM flight, weeks ago. I just noticed my mistake and the correct flight is 5x the cost now and the flight I need is VERY full, only a couple of seats left.

I am Platinum.

What are my best options of getting my flight switched without paying the extra cost?

Do I reach out now, 4 days before the flight?
Do I wait until 24 hours before the flight?

Is there any chance that they will move me without having to pay extra?
