However... I've now got 100k+ miles in the family account yet I'm still waiting for the ability UPGRADE using the family account.

Still says "Coming Soon" on the EK website. Any info on this?
I can report that upgrading from the Family Account is now available on the Desktop version of the site. (still says "coming soon" on Family page though)

You will have perhaps noticed that the upgrade interface in MMB has changed recently.

When an upgrade is available, there's now a "View Options" button to proceed.

Once you click that, a window will pop up where you can select any of either your account, the family account and any skysurfer's account connected to yours.
