I would take it for $800-$900, but only on YVR-SYD since the way back it's a day flight anyway.
This, in my view, is the most logical way anyone has suggested to evaluate a last minute upgrade offer. If I had an upgraded seat and someone offered me $LMU to move back to Y, would I take that deal? If the answer is 'yes', refuse the LMU. If the answer is 'no', take the LMU. Seems like a pretty cut and dried approach to this "dilemma".
