Question Upgrade with miles, how many?

I'm flying AMS-CPT next week and would like to use some of my miles to upgrade to business class. Does anyone know how many miles I would need for this?

(original booking is B class, that alllows for upgrades correct?)

Thanks very much!

You may want to bookmark this website, it is very useful for FB members,..much better than AF website too. It even allows you to change languages.

Thanks kiam, finally found it (went all over the site, but guess I looked in the wrong place).

Now let's hope there's some space left in business....

Well... Except that it gave you the wrong info on AF tickets bought in France! I agree that with the right info, the presentation would be much better than the small footnotes on AF though.

virtually, yes
Find "A" seat is very difficult.
You need to phone to Flying Blue.
