VS Upgrades --> SkyMiles

I'm on a JFK--LHR-JNB r/t next week. All flight segments are looking rather empty. VA booking has an option for sliding-scale "bidding" on upgrades for each flight segment, but that hardly seems like a deal since the lowest bid for the combined segments is identical to what the upgraded flight would have cost anyway. I put low bids on the long LHR-JNB segments anyway, figuring I can always withdraw them. I've also seen, over at the VS FT forum, that it's sometimes possible to upgrade at the gate if space is available. Has anyone tried this recently (post-virus), especially to/from JFK where there appears to be a lot of unused inventory? Also, and more related to this Delta forum, if I were to get upgraded on one or more segments, either at the gate or using the sliding-scale biding procedure, would that change the fare class for purposes of computing SkyMiles MQDs? MQDs could be make/break for me. Thanks in advance!
