I cleared as 1K on my last flight. Then again, it depends on which day of the week, which flight, and what the load looks like. I've seen a situation where there were 2 seats available in C at the gate, with 35 people on the waitlist for upgrade. Then again, my partner has 100% batting average so far for upgrading on p.s. route as a 1P (using miles, not 500 miler).

It only sounds complicated. I use KVS religiously, and it's been a great tool to determine and pinpoint exact flight with the lowest fare bucket and/or upgrade availability.
