Can you upgrade to Premium Class on domestic leg of international itinerary?

Hi all. I've searched and can't find this. Can you upgrade to Premium Class on domestic leg of international itinerary?

I'm trying to reach Platinum and taking a BKK-TYO-FUK flight, and therefore interested in paying for the Premium upgrade on the domestic leg. Thanks.

Yes, this can be done at the airport the day of departure on the domestic segment you wish to upgrade for 9,000 JPY (pending availability) see Wasabi Tofu's post for updated information.

FYI, for certain domestic fares AMC members can also upgrade two days in advance: https://www.ana.co.jp/en/jp/domestic...vance-upgrade/

It's an old page.
Upgrading to a premium class for HND-FUK costs 15,000JPY now.

I couldn't fine an English page. But,

And, 15000JPY for extra 567 Premium Points isn't good deal, IMHO.

Thanks both for the answers above. Bummer about the price; seems like this price is worthwhile only for maybe Tokyo-Okinawa .

JAL F class in domestic seems to be much better value. Especially if you're flying from Tokyo to Sapporo. You can get tickets in F for about $200, which I would consider much better value than points + $100 (or is it $80) for the upgrade.

​​​​​​The current upgrade to JAL F domestic is 8,000 yen, so to get it for 200 USD you would need to find a ticket around 13,000 yen, which is only the various air passes, and same day upgrades. Though same day upgrades are very limited on the Sapporo route. Even a few days in advance is often tricky when booking from the outset, and that costs far more than USD 200.

Can't agree more, that's an absurd price for domestic. Sometimes they offer Y pax to upgrade to C for $450 for LAX - NRT flights, before doing op-ups.

I recall right after the recession, ANA had a lengthy promotion where it was Y7,000 to upgrade to Premium Class. That was worth it for those longer domestic flights...
