Just thinking thanks to the "lucky 100" winners you have saved me from another trip in BA Y. I've got a couple coming up including B 789 just to ground me.

I was very pleased to see in MMB today the upgrade (with cash) offers have dropped significantly and happily paid £148 to upgrade our overnight back from AUH to LHR and not have to try and sleep in Y.
Any insight into when the bulkhead A/K seats open up (have an expertflyer alert created) would be greatly appreciated.

It looks like a ghost plane at the moment, I think there were 2 other seats selected in Y and none so far in Y+...

Edit: FWIW, to upgrade with Avios was available, a mere 13k points per person- BUT there was a £120 per head surcharge for carrier fees, so this (which apparently will now earn at Y+ instead of Y) works better for me!

interestingly mine has also dropped to £179 to PE too. Is this a good deal? (Never done an upgrade before as never been in this economy bucket!)

This is a fairly standard POUG fare, which tends to materialise a day or two after booking. There is a thread on the topic in the Dashboard, but this is a good upgrade figure, I doubt it would go much lower.

In the £150 region I think, clicked past too quickly in the worry the initial booking wouldnít go through. Will report back with POUG rates when they come in
