Are there some additional fees they charge when you get an upgrade with miles? I've never done one before.
There are B fares and then there are B fares. I've found in the past that the lowest B fare isn't always upgradeable, and I've found others that upgrade for the same low milage and great availablity that Y fares upgrade from. But worth calling to find out.

IMHO, a great addition to the website.
