Yeah, that's very true! Pretty much all those flights were in the lowest econ bucket (other than the China flight, which somehow was both a cheap ticket (~650) and not the lowest TP/segment), and it's pretty hard to justify WTP given how cheap I got some of those tickets for (<900 to SYD both times, <650 to China, <350 to West Coast). IIRC, W and J were nearly 2x and 4x more expensive!
