What will be the chance of me getting a 1st class upgrade on the day?..is this the only way?
Unfortunately, you'll have to be on standby for your upgrade to Salt Lake City. If lucky, you'll than have to cancel the normal seat and buy a first class seat, and pay the additional change fee. Other than that, that's it unless you are a medallion level flyer. Basically, if there are many medallion flyers wanting upgrades on the day, they will take priority so your chances of getting a 1st class upgrade is practically non-existent.
Do they charge you anyway or only if you actually fly first class?
Often, you can redeem frequent flier miles for a guaranteed upgrade.
upgrading to first class
the chances of you being able to upgrade to first class can only happen on flights where first class is pretty empty and no one is upgrading. Also, remember that only certain fare codes are eligible for standby upgrades. Also, Delta's $75 is a joke when most other airlines is just about $35.
It's amazing to me how much the airlines charge for everything. They just take more and more while giving us less. The good thing about Salt Lake City is that it's Delta's hub, so there are more flights going through on an average day. With more flights, you have a greater chance of getting that upgrade.
