upgrade from economy to first

Could find my answer on the flying blue site, or in the sticky.

Is it possible to upgrade an air france economy ticket to first class. Would that cost double the single upgrade points?

Thanks...

You do know that most economy fares aren't upgradeable, don't you?

You can only get a one-class upgrade. No double upgrades are allowed. The French version of the AF/FB online site states this explicitly, even though this is not made clear on the English version.

Really I can't understand this question. The fares with which you can be upgraded are usually very near to lowest C fares which can be upgraded to first class .

That's true but actually, C fares are usually sold out a few weeks or days before the flight. So you don't really have the choice (C vs. Y).
