You'll need to upgrade via your travel agent.

Get the EK PNR from the agent and then you can do it online

Not on a TA issued ticket, assuming it's a cash upgrade

Dont think its possible, I booked a ticket in the past via amex travel website and they do not let the end user make any changes, doubt the travel agent will either, hence why they get the tickets cheap and sell it off to you

Doesn't matter, its not about making changes, its about upgrading. If a TA issued the ticket, EK won't let you make changes but the e-ticket will have the airline PNR and with that they can log in to MMB and upgrade with their miles

Yes but I think OP wants to upgrade with cash. With miles it's 100% possible on a TA ticket

What is the price for a paid upgrade? And can you explain what a "premium plus" ticket is?
