I often ‘upgrade’ my tickets after purchase as my employer will only pay Y or W. I obtain a ticket and then investigate the cost of changing it to a higher class at my own expense. The new ticket always gives the XP and miles of the higher class. By calling FB, I can sometimes get the change fee waived if the new ticket is issued within 24 hours.
