I guess it really comes down to personal choice, budget and how much you want to avoid siting it WT. Will also depend on which day you're flying. Maybe keep an eye on loads in WT+. I've never tried that upgrade but I've in the past played the game of buying a WT+ ticket and hoping for a cash offer to CW. I've never not had and accepted one. And I usually ended up taking the POUG instead of playing the airport lottery. £339 is not cheap but I wouldn't say it was insane either. People saying that over £200 is too much seems a bit optimistic (or just stingy!)...the wiki doesn't show any flights of that length for under £200. If it is a relatively empty cabin and you check in early enough then you might be in with a shout. Just my own uneducated guess, but in the best case, you might get an airport offer of say £250, but the cabin might also be full. Just make sure you pick a good seat in WT as a backup.

It's nothing to do with being stingy or optimistic. It's about value for money. BA PE is currently offering a slighty better seat ( as most of the PE prodcuts) and a better first meal. IMO that does not worth more than £200 and i have done a few PE products ( Eva, Lufthansa, Air Canada and more). I always paid between £150-£200. Let's not forget it a better economy seat and not really something between economy and business.

I meant it's optimistic to hope to get an offer for under £200. It won't happen. As an aside, there's also little evidence of BA offering anyone WT -> CW at £300 for a flight to the west coast. Most here would bite your hand off if you offered that on LX, LH or AC for Y->J.

Value for money is a personal choice. And I guess it also might depend on what one paid for the ticket in the first place. Plenty of people would rather spend £300 on a nice meal at their destination. PE cabin is the one most likely to be full. So enough people are willing to pay what the asking price to fill it. If I were 6'4" with a bad back and I had a spare £339, I'd likely take it.

What it boils down to for me is, I'm not a small chap and don't like spending 11 hours with someone elbowing me in the ribs. WTP is far more restful.

Flight isn't til Dec but it's usually a busy flight so I'll pony up before getting to the airport to get me that seat.

LHR-JFK next week CW to F @ £649!

I don’t think Club is actually that full, and neither is First. It would need to halve (or more!) before I begin to even consider it:

What are the real benefits between CW and F on that flight considering how relatively short it is for the gain?

extra tier points
extra Avios
use of YouFirst
better food
ability to dine when you want
better seat
better lounge

the sum total of which doesn’t add up to £649 for me. Although the CW food isn’t great at the moment the overall package is still good enough for me to pay for.

BA’s bean counter me are missing a trick by not modifying their IT system to allow passengers on itineraries not starting at LHR or LGW to be offered online upgrades.

I’d welcome a fresher on these…I have a holiday booking, booked on BA.com (flight + car). Are POUGs offered on holiday bookings?

As I understand it BA Holiday Booking are handled as Travel Agent bookings and so no POUG offered initially as the booking still belongs to the booking agency. Although there are reports of POUG being offered once the flight element of the book is handed to the airline on or around (a day or two before) the time when online check in opens.

So no chance of a POUG offer on a DUB-LHR-DXB booking? Will there still be a chance of an AUP on the LHR-DXB leg?

I am flying home from Corfu this week and can see the CE cabin is very quiet (from booked and blocked out seats and internal info).

I want to try and upgrade, but I can’t upgrade online as it is BA Holidays and I know agents at CFU wont know how to upgrade at the airport. Any ideas?
