I am not sure since I only fly F, but I do have a thought. Is the language "upgrade" the issue? What I mean is, you are not asking for an upgrade - you want to purchase a seat and pay the spread. Given the incredible sensitivity to "upgrades" that could be the issue since I can not imagine any airline, SQ included not being willing to take money form its PAX.
