Hi,

Another data point. Tomorrow I have a flight from CDG-SIN (beginning in AMS). Have a ticket in PE, an S sub class. Checked in today and was offered an upgrade for 419 Euros/60k miles to J. I am still thinking about it since my ticket is already rather expensive.
A sort of just over on what I was willing to pay or use miles (in the old system, this would have cost me just 40k miles).

Cheers!

This is the same price range I got for exactly the same flight over 2 years ago, it was about that for both CDG-SIN and SIN-CDG, with one being in A and the other in S.

I would definitely take the 419 EUR option. Although not the 60k miles.

CDG-HND Z to P.... 2,686.60

That's double what I've been offered in the past and is more or less the difference between the price paid in J/Z (MAN-CDG-HND) and full La Premiere pricing.

Not an "exceptional offer" AF. Turned down.

I have a interesting scenario. I called AirFrance and used my flyingblue miles to upgrade from economy to business. I did it the day I got a notification from expertflyer that there is O availability for my segment from CDG-BLR on January6th 2018 (AF192). This was on Tuesday morning. The agent processed my upgrade and I got a notification from AirFrance with the upgrade and the same was reflected on my AF and DL booking identifiers. The miles were also debited from my account. Then yesterday I get an email from KLM, first validating the upgrade to O for that segment. Then 30 minutes later I get another email saying that I have been moved back to economy to a B fare. When I speak with flyingblue they tell me that when I got the upgrade there was availability but now there isn't and so they dropped me back to economy. But when I check expertflyer it still shows 8 seats available for O. Any ideas what could be going on?

there's no need to post your story twice in the same forum...

Indeed. In the past I've had offers of between 1400 - 1500. I might have taken up the offer at that price. Never mind, more money to spend on the finer things in Tokyo
