Thanks.
Of course it's your choice, but I'd say it's DEFINITELY not worth it. It's a very short hop.

Question for folks here. I was booking VCE-DUB for October and was planning to go full cheapo, until I saw it was an A321Neo with the lie flats. There was no "AerSpace" fare offered so I just bought the cheapest one and then after booking I paid for seats, which was annoyingly 5EUR more than offered during booking, but was worth it to charge to JPM Ritz Card and use my airline credit on it.

Since they weren't offering the AerSpace fare, can I assume there won't be any included catering like mentioned here? Wasn't expecting as much, but I'm a little giddy to end up in lie flats for a 3hr European flight when I had resigned myself to economy, so I am a little curious what exactly the offering is on this route.

DUB VCE is not a aerspace route

Therefore if you can select and pay for the J seat great, but there will not be a free catering offering

Thanks for confirming. Might pay for food anyway just for the novelty as there might not be a good time to eat between departing hotel and the flight.

Sorry to hijack the thread a bit since this isnt the actual AerSpace fare!

Flew to LIN this morning.

As a data point. All four AerSpace seats were on sale yesterday at midday for 476.

They were empty today. No TA J transfers it seems. But a full flight with six empty seats at the front.

Hard to know exactly what EI get out of this.

They need to start doing upgrades 24 hours before for around 50 - 70 to status members.
That way no empty seats.

Great idea or even just lower the price from 48 hours out.

Maybe this type of thing will come along side a possible OW integration?

The yield management folks have seriously screwed up on this

I was the only passenger in AerSpace on a A321LR recently to CDG, same trip last year same dates cabin was 75% full

Difference is prices have effectively doubled 2023 vs 2024

Doubled and more. And thats the issue. And theyre clearly not filling them with transferring J passengers. Bid for Upgrade idea is great. Id definitely do that. Email status members on a flight and ask them if they want to. Its a no brainer. Id happily pay 50-75 on top of a saver fare for the front row and some food!

Plus the TP's . Works well for other airlines. All revenue generators. With the lack of hot food past row 3 on the majority of flights they are throwing revenue away .

First level is offer a deal at +10 hours from departure (allows the end of check in on the US/CA side so J transfer load is locked in)

Plus the reality is most companies travel policies will not allow the colossal difference between the saver and AerSpace fares so Id wager theyre missing out on that too

I’d love to be able to use my concierge vouchers for upgrade. I’d definitely get the use of them then.
