Upgrade from C to F with on business

I would like to book a business class ticket with an upgrade with onbusiness points. Which class do I have to book for this upgrade?

I called BA and they told me only D class is available. When I try to book this online I get normal I class ticket prices from London. But when I start my ticket in Amsterdam or Dusseldorf I get prices like 8000-9000 euro + points (more expensive then regular paid first class).

I have noticed the same. My guess is that the booking engine does not manage to find through-fares when upgrading (it-bug) and just combine a bunch of full fare one-way segments.

I will have to check this but i think there is a limitation which booking classes can be used when doing an upgrade with points booking.
