LAX-Europe at 10hr+ ?...maybe I'd consider pulling the trigger at $900. PHL-LIS (a relatively short flight)? No.

Maybe at $500 or less. And everything is possible. Nobody here has a crystal ball here to tell you whether the offer will drop to $500. IMO, they won't as $900 is already a discount compared to the original $1800.

YMMV
same. My offer for Phl-dub goes from $900-$1200 every few days. DUB and LIS are short enough Im very happy in PE.

Very reasoned analysis! That makes a lot of sense. Thanks!

As there are only 6 seats left to sell at this point, ~6 weeks out, they will very likely dwindle down to 0 and the $900 offer will be gone, baby, gone. It's a tough one. I'd probably stay in PE versus spending another $1800. If you have 50k points and $700 you could set an EF alert in case they open C inventory for 2 upgrades. Instead of $1800 it would cost you $700 plus whatever you value 50K points. You can call and waitlist for this option.
