upgrade chart?

Hi everyone, I am a recent Emirates Gold (based on two round-trip business class flights). I'm interested in using my miles for upgrades. I've looked all over the Skywards site and I can't find a chart that shows how many miles are needed for upgrades! I've also looked this in this forum, but only a few pages back I admit.

Could someone point me to the proper url? I did try to use the "where can I go today" function but it always timed out.

I'm looking in particular at Auckland-Sydney or other Australia destinations (from economy to business), and Auckland-Africa routes.

Birder,

Welcome to the EK forum!

You'll find the info you need here:
http://www.skywards.com/Mileage_Calculator.aspx

You will need 25,000 miles for a return Y-J upgrade (flex ticket) or 32,000 miles if you're on a saver fare for AKL-SYD

The Skywards website should be able to give you all the detail you need.

Actually that's the mileage needed for a return upgrade, but essentially that link should let you look at all the different options.

Not as easy as it used to be and not intuitive. You have to log in to your Skywards account then go to Spending miles and then go to "To see where your miles can take you" then enter a start point and select target class of service (Biz in your case) and then a chart will come up. Good luck...

Thanks everyone - that's great. I have enough for two return upgrades on a saver fare, which is all I needed to know!
