Pay for Business class upgrade now or there?

Have the opportunity to pay for a business class upgrade of my return leg of my AZ codeshare flight CDG-FCO-KUL-MEL
Ive been quoted $2500AUD for this through my travel agent. Pay it now or chance for a cheaper price when I check in (providing there is still availability at the gate?)

2500 AUD wouold be approx. 1500 or am I mistaken? Still it's far too much for a one-way, although I wouldn't even have thought it were possible on a codeshare. It sounds to me as if your agency is in fact proposing to buy a second Business class ticket from scratch.

Well... I guess if you really need a Business ticket then I would pay the 2500AUD now cos you're unlikely to get a chance for an upgrade on the day.
