I think OP may be referring to cash upgrade offers. These depend on the load and revenue forecast of the flight, if EK determines that they will have empty seats in J and think that they can entice some Y pax to purchase a discounted cash upgrade to that cabin they will make these offers available. You can tell if a flight has such offers available from the "P" fare bucket being >0 as this fare bucket is used exclusively for these offers.

Occasionally EK also offers miles upgrades (where available) at OLCI, in my experience at the full upgrade price though there have been reports of discounted miles upgrade offers
