This will affect LX badly, they wouldn't have these offers if they didn't have difficulties filling their premium cabins. Let's not forget that the network carriers have a terrible problem squeezing some yield out of European flights.

I never once upgraded an OS flight despite getting the offer every time on OLCI, I am sure many other Elite's did the same thing given no miles, look at the state of OS. (Not suggesting that there is a major loss of revenue from not offering miles for paid upgrades online )
This is the difference. With OS I always decline the offer. With BA I always accept as I love the extra Miles and Status Credits!
