Emirates does send out upgrade offers by email but for each sector separately based on what revenue management feels is necessary so there are no guarantees you will get one. I've got emails when J is empty or when Y is full/oversold. USA-DXB sector is always $1000 one way and I usually fly to NBO which is $600 for that sector. IMHO it's not worth it for such a short sector. Very important to know is that if you use the email upgrade option, it does NOT include chauffeur service or lounge access. If you don't get the email you can ask at the airport and may get the $1000 offer then based on availability.

You can use miles to upgrade but I think you only have enough for the short sector. You can buy miles to top up your balance.

You can find the miles calculator here
