I didn't try because I didn't realize it was operational again.

(but I see now on your blog that it is)

HAM-AMS €94. Not anywhere near what I'd be willing to pay.

I believe that's the standard OLCI upgrade option. I see it every time I'm on that route at least.

Good to know ^
Last year all my AMS-CDG flights were J connecting to long-haul, so I don't have a reference point

Wow, that's excellent. I'd have jumped on that too.

Seeing few of these lately, perhaps more use (or A/B testing) of the bidding process?

CPH-AMS, the usual 149.-- 11/16 available.

They could easily have reduced EB to the minimum 2 rows, but the flight looks half empty in the back, so probably no point in moving the divider. I bet they will cram the two EC rows full, though!
