NEW:S7 Airport Upgrade

As of 18FEB16, S7 offers an option to upgrade to J for cash.

A few facts:
-Miles as per original ticketed class;
-No lounge access (unless OWS/OWE);
-No extra baggage allowance;
-Available (not earlier than 3 hours before departure);
-No restrictions on class/ticketing stock (eg:award ticket on BA 125 stock is eligible;
-A passenger will have to ask at for an upgrade at the check in counter and he/she will be advised if there is availability,they then have to make their way to the ticket office (located just opposite the S7 counters at DME and pay the upgrade price and then return to the check in counter,where they will be handed a boarding pass issued into "U" сlass (same bucket used for business class redemptions);
-UPD 12APR2016:

S7 has now rolled out the AUP (airport upgrade scheme) system wide. All flights are divided into 4 categories/zones,with cheapest upgrades being in Zone 1 (4000RUB) and most expensive ones in zone 4 (10,000RUB). While these upgrades don't yield lounge access (unless OWE/OWS),extra mielage,or baggage allowance I find most of them do be very good value.

At the moment you can still only buy them at the departing airport (ie:can't buy OVB-HKG upgrade at DME) and they are not available online.

UPD:29JAN17

S7 now allows to purchase Airport Upgrades during OLCI (opens 30 hours prior to check in). The price and conditions are the same as if you bought them in the airport.
