This is the standard USA-DXB or DXB-USA upgrade offer. It really depends on what you consider "worth it." In general, if you are connecting in DXB, it works out to be cheaper than a one way business saver but maybe not flex. If DXB is your final destination then it is definitely cheaper than booking in paid business. For me personally, the CD is not as important as the lounge and seat upgrade, but reasonable minds may differ. I have taken them up on it a couple times and never regretted it, but I also had lounge access through status so it made the decision easier. One way you could look at it now that EK is offering lounge access for $100 is: "would you pay $1100 if it included lounge access?"
