Id rather spend (at airport before boarding or in the restaurant before airport) a real GREAT meal for $40 or $50, and forget about eating a $10 meal in the plane. (A $10 small no variable meal which costs $30 per 500-miles?!?!?!!).
How in da world would i pay for such a robbery? A robbery that can cost even $120 for a pretty short flight (3 stickers for a 1,500 miles flights).
I do the math, and it makes no sense for me.
This is the beauty of the programme: those who don't value the upgrades don't clog up the system with upgraders, leaving room for those of us that do value them.

I may be wrong but I think that EXPs are not automatically added to the upgrade list if there are multiple people on the PNR.
