If the 50% mileage penalty and non-upgrade clause don't work, I hardly see a mythical chance of an op up driving someone to pay 100% more.

Plus, this is probably the most discrete enhancements lately, so doubt anyone except VFF and FT members notice it and changes buying habit accordingly. I fail to see a real reason for this except discouraging the few Y SEN flyers like me from long haul travel with LH.
