MAD1127 RAK-LGW Dec 22. Works out at approx £90. I guess it is the same £99 as before when buying a ticket ex-UK, give or take exchange rate fluctuations.

Any recent experience of understanding when a POUG may be offered? I booked ET for an LGW-LCA flight on Saturday evening because the J fare was ridiculous but it's still only offering a fare difference calculation (c. £750 pp)!

Is it 48 hours exactly from booking? If so, I still have a few hours to go.

In my experience it's the second day after booking, not just 48hrs after, but I haven't used a stopwatch. Some flights don't have a POUG if BA think that they can sell the last seats for a higher price!

Yes, it's generally the morning after the 48 hour stage from ticketing. It can be 48 hours on the dot sometimes. Whether a POUG will be offered is a dark art, and it's currently up-ended in that BA won't necessarily roll back the curtain like they used to do, depending a bit on aircraft type. In the past, very high CE fares, very low ET fares. not full flight flight would generally lead to a POUG but if CE is semi-fixed then once it's full, it's full.

I booked ET LHR to VIE- POUG to CE for each leg (booked separately) is £90 and €109. Looking above this seems a pretty standard price and I presume I am unlikely to see any better offer than that (including on the day)?

BOS - LHR in WTP, MMB showed possibilty to upgrade to C for cash but crashed during price determination with "please call us instead".
Very patient lady from ExecClub quoted me - after lot of clicking on her side - a bargain of 8.000 GBP for the upgrade which I politely declined...

There is a possibility that the price of the upgrade at the airport (AUP) is less expensive, but there is no guarantee. I once upgraded from Y to J for a flight from Aberdeen to Heathrow for £56 at the check-in desks on the day.

£99 each way from ET to CE LCY to Malaga for October half term. I’ve ended up doing it as it takes me to silver so seems about the cheapest way to do it - even given the CE limitations re lounge/boarding at LCY.

I also asked online for a quote to upgrade from WTP to CW on a LGW to JFK flight in December. It’s BA holidays so can’t do it via MMB. Currently £2000.30 each round trip. Assuming this is the difference between what I booked it at and the cost now. As it’s a holidays booking I may have to see what is available at the airport.

I was offered 450 each way in the summer LHR to IAD to upgrade from WTP to CW, so was hoping for similarish.
