Meal service is indeed nothing to write home about.
When Y is full the price seems to be dropped to 79€, which all in all I'm happy to pay for, but at the moment it seems like I will have a row of my own in Y
Empty row in Y confirmed ^

A family member got an OLCI offer for IAD-CDG on AF from Y to PE for €349. I would have gone for it, but he didn't.

Yeah, but you probably would have already been in J.

True, but then I would have taken an offer to get up to P.

I should also mention that he showed me the email a few hours after he got it. I tried clicking on the link, but the seat had already gone. The lesson here is to keep watch on your email at OLCI time and click on it immediately if it is a good offer. If you hesitate, someone else will get that seat.

27-April: KL855 AMS-ICN [lots of space in both Eco and Biz] - offered initially during OLCI 649 Euro; later at the airport asking an agent - 750 Euro.

Did not take any and gave up my Eco comfort seat for a row of 3 seats.

AMS-GRU: 859 Euro during OLCI.

During the boarding process, the flight attendant was passing through Eco Comfort, offering upgrades to WBC for miles (I didn't hear how much was the asking price, but none of the passengers took it up. I asked and was told that the offer applies only to "selected passengers").

Just checked in for my gf flying NCL-AMS-PEK (Q class). NCL-AMS offered Y to J for £59 (declined), AMS-PEK offered Y to J for £296 and took it. She didn't seem to think it was worth it but I couldn't let a good deal pass so bought it for her

Anyone know if this will get her lounge access in NCL and PEK. Some rules I read seem to suggest she can but others seem to suggest she only gets access in AMS?

She will only be able to access the Crown Lounge at Schiphol.
