During the fare sale the difference in cost between J and F from DXB -> BKK was only US$400. I am not sure what the price difference is now, but it may be worthwhile looking into the cost to change to F. The money is well spent, especially if you are on the 380.

Thanks for this. It works out BHX-BKK 2075 in J and 4075 in F(Even though no F on BHX-DBX). But if I check DBX-BKK return the difference in fare between J and F if 400!?

If I just book the J fare to BKK can I ask to pay cash for the Upgrage and pay that sort of fare difference?

I was looking to jump on the EK418/419 rather than A380 based on more chances the plane being full on 418/419 and more chance of an upgrade?

Right or wrong thinking? or how shall I do it as I dont have enough miles to ugrade.

Each letter represents a fare bucket and the number represents the minimum number of seats available for sale in that bucket. They are usually ranked in order of price.

P, A = First
J, C, I, O = Business
Y to X = Economy

So for and op-up your ideal scenario is P4 A4 J0 C0 I0 O0
