I depends on your routes really. I do BOM - CCU a lot much of which is on late bookings. I regularly find one way fares around INR 8-12k against 12k miles.

My suggestion is that obviously if you donít see that kind of returns on your miles donít wait till the last minute for the prices to increase but rather keep buying revenue tix till you get a redemption opportunity.

Since JP miles donít expire anymore (but you need to have some activity in the past 18 months) youíre relatively safe except against devaluations.

I donít see great value in upgrades in general unless youíre sitting on a lot of miles or you want to experience a better cabin.
