I have also upgraded many times and never had to pay extra (out of ATH, AMS, ARN, CPH, WAW). It only applies at airports that charge an extra rate of tax for C class tickets over Y class. LHR is one of the few. For example, the UK APD on an economy class ticket LHR-ATH on A3 is 14.57 Euro whereas it is 29.13 Euro in business class, so you would have to pay the difference. There's a similar situation at CDG where the 'Air Passenger Solidarity Tax' goes up from 1.13 Euro to 11.27 for C class. You can check all this out on ITAMatrix.
