I've not had much luck getting the old school mileage upgrades, but have been regularly offered F on domestics over 2.5 hours for around 15,000 skm routinely since the push to use miles to upgrade when changing seats post booking. For me, I've been able to buy up for less and more frequently than before.

One example was MSP-MCO (the unhappiest flight on earth). I was offered a one way upgrade for 17,300 with a price of around $200. Seemed like a good deal to me!

That said, I just redeemed miles for $0.061/mi to TYO... which is a WAY better value
