Air France to NRT

I will be flying CCS-CDG-NRT in Affaires class, and I am a SkyTeam E+. I know that NRT is usually a busy route, so I was curious as to peoples experience with OP-Ups? Is this very rare to/from NRT or very common?. I am on a discounted fare (Z-class) so I guess that works against me.

Would asking for an upgrade "as a courtesy" work? Has anybody tried this before?? I guess there is some luck involved.

I'd say your chances stands between zilch and none.

Op-up are extremely seldom, the load factor in J is abysmal due to the current economic downturn, and you're not even a FB "own elite" (if that changed anything) and you're flying on a cheap fare.

I think you'd better not count on it, really.

Flying this route quite often, I saw a few op-up from J to P, especially on the CDG/NRT (very uncommon the other way round).
However, it was always japansese C2000 cardholders. And only on the overnight flight where 8 seats are available.
