Ticket Type after Upgrade
 
I have a Flex Plus Y return ticket MAN -> DXB in July.

Upgrading to J is currently absurdly cheap.

If I upgrade, does it become a Flex Plus J (which I can move the date without charge) or a Saver J?

I think I already know the answer but thought I would check.

Also, is there any way to check what the upgrade price might be if I moved it before upgrading it? The return is currently on Thursday and I want to move it to Friday, but not enough to loose out on the crazy cheap upgrade.

If you pay cash to upgrade the ticket will be re-issued with the new fare's rules, which sounds like it will be J Saver. In terms of the upgrade cost if you moved to another date, as long as the same fare bucket is available (O for J Saver) and you meet the conditions of the fare the price will be the same. I'd suggest doing both together, since upgrading with cash doesn't incur a change fee (need to call, though), you may be able to get them to change the date for you without the fee as well.

How much is crazy cheap? It is a rarity to see cheap flights Man-DXB in J..

824 incl taxes for both ways.

That is a decent price seeing as the email upgrade offer is about 450 each way without the additional miles.

I just upgraded an Flex Plus Y to J (I'm now booked as in J Flex Plus) and strongly believe changing the date should be complimentary.

By the way, since when do you lose the chauffeur-drive service when you upgrade to J using miles? Seriously Emirates?

1st March. And with miles upgrades the original fare brand is retained, however this thread is about paid upgrades, where the new fare bucket's fare brand applies.

My original itinerary was 15->18th July.

I changed to 15th->19th July and still got the very good price.

MAN -> DXB was cheaper than DXB -> MAN.

man Dxb is always much less - what was the price of the J saver?

My Flex Plus economy was ~1,050 the upgrade was 824

Maybe to a special!

I have CD and seat selection.

Had a Flex Ticket in Y, got the upgrade offer to J without lounge access etc.

Ended up with J Flex

Good thing is that if I bought the business Special fare, I would not be able to choose a seat till check in, but with the upgrade offer I got it (though all other conditions such as no lounge/chauffer are the same as Business Special)
