Even better is when Eligible upgrade fares are more expensive than buying F outright. ;)

while it's crazy for one-way flights, it's not entirely unreasonable for roundtrips because you cannot combine X and ~X on the two legs, and it might be more expensive for one leg only.

Never seen this before. AS149 on 2/9 shows most (but not all) main cabin seats as being eligible for saver fare seat selection.
