Swiss offering cheap Business upgrades in Europe

I received an email from Swiss with information about upgrading from economy for about €75/ segment.

It is selected destinations and only when flying on LX metal. The difference places the Business Saver fair at about the same as a normal economy ticket. You can find the information here.

My understanding is, that it's sort of like a standby gamble, where you pay for an upgrade that might not be there, but you get 2000 M&M points for the J class booking. Selected SWISS Flights in Europe have blue-colored prices in the SWISS.COM

Business benefits at a glance

* More award and status miles for Miles & More members
* Check in on the web
* Separate check-in counter at the airport
* Priority service at baggage claim
* Business baggage: 30 kg allowance, 2 carry-ons (8kg limit per carry-on)
* Access to the lounge
* Selection of daily newspapers in various languages
* Breakfast, lunch and supper with beverages of your choosing, depending on flight time

Terms and conditions
The Business upgrade fares are based on SWISS Economy fares. Rebookings or refunds are thus governed by the same terms and conditions as the underlying Economy fare. If the upgrade booking class is unavailable, any price difference between the underlying Economy fare and the Business upgrade fare cannot be refunded. The upgrade fares are only valid for flights operated by SWISS in Europe.
