199 euros to move forward one row in a short flight....
I think this is the highest "offer" I have received for short haul flights, it was often lower.

About 2 hours in the air... probably depends on what we are used to. I do a lot of Tenerife-Madrid and Oslo-Madrid and EU-US flights, so jumping from Madrid to CDG or AMS to catch connections is probably my shortest segment!

I had 249 for CDG-VLC and CPH-CDG once.

about the same distance. The former a Hop! Flight, so Embraer. 199 is a good deal compared to that 😅

Whaaaat? For a one way upgrade? That is about the same price for the upgrade as a regular return in J of say 3k.....

OLCI check-in is not guaranteed, as it all depends on availability. The pricing will also fluctuate. But, yes, eco light flights to get upgrade offers too (when they are presented), and you original booking class won't matter. Even redemption tickets, sometimes, get OLCI offers.

FLR-AMS

FLR-AMS 199 Euro.

A pretty unique flight, 32 J seats (yes, 8 rows). 1 seat was available for sale at the check-in. Immediately after take-off, the two FAs were serving in Economy while the third FA was sleeping throughout the flight in the back galley (went to the bathroom twice, and saw her twice cuddled in the jump seat leaning against the door). The service in J started one hour into the flight, about 45 min prior to landing.

Wow.

I'm guessing (hoping) the FA was out for whatever reason and the purser decided to just do the flight in 2 rather than cancelling it, but leaving J cabin hanging? And such a large one at that?

VLC-AMS 99 or 14100 miles. Took the miles offer because of the 5 rows J, 3 were empty, and I wanted the empty seat next to me (E295). The Eco Comfort seat next to mine was empty until 1h before boarding.

AMS-CPH later today has 2 rows of J, 6 empty seats, 89 euro or 12700 miles... I'm letting thatone go.

This helps me not take personally the horrible upgrade offers that I get!
