Let's seperate things here a bit.

If there were empty wbc seats available, either before or after non revs were upgraded, and one was willing to use miles to do an upgrade, then it would be great if NW would allow an upgrade. While it would be great to get an op-upgrade, I would not expect it.

Where I think NW needs to enhance their approach to WBC upgrades is if there is space, and you are willing to use some miles (maybe more miles for a lower fare, fewer miles for higher fare), then allow an upgrade to occur.

Sure its a nice perk for the employees to get an WBC upgrade, however it is also a nice perk for customers who are contibuting to the salries of those same employees.
