Are there some additional fees they charge when you get an upgrade with miles? I've never done one before.
Since you're going to the UK you pay extra for being in WBC because of the "cheater" line at immigration. If you don't book in WBC you just pay the normal fee. This is the reason for the difference in the UK.
