How many upgrade seats does LAN release on each 767/787 flight? Is there a number?
Is there any way to know 100% for sure, before buying the economy ticket, that i'll be able to upgrade it?
All economy fares have the same upgrade chances on 767/787 flights?
Note: ALL upgrades im talking about, are upgrades with KMs.
Thanks in advance!!
Hi tuchop. You need to find U fare for Biz upgrade. I know of no easy source (like EF) that shows U availability, but would love to be wrong about this*. Proxy would be to find date with lowest reward availability on a LanPass search.

If you have an eligible fare class as per OP and there is U space you can immediately request upgrade with KMs.

* (EF shows T and U for XL, but U has no value)
