Got one on Friday. AMS-STR on N, opup for 79EUR which I did take up as I was planning on travelling with more luggage and did not want the hassle of a second bag.

So far that makes 2 opup offers out of 4 flights since they started this...

At OLCI today, AMS-OTP upgrade offered at EUR119. Q class ticket.

Didn't accept the offer, the exit row seat was freely available.

Judging by the feedback here I take it the upgrades are being offered for only one of the flights on a two-flight trip. €79 would have been a good deal on both segments.

Double that and then double again for a return and then it's far cheaper and more comfortable just to buy LX Business Upgrades and have a paid seat in business class and earning 10k miles in the process. Of course, this is a good plan if LX fly to where you want to go.

I was travelling in R (fare code RSR3FR) and got offered the 79EUR upgrade on ZRH-AMS.
I did not take the offer - flight is short and the adjacent seat on E190 is not even left vacant.

I just checked in a friend of mine for his flight from NUE to AMS tomorrow (with a connection on to DUB on EI). He's travelling in class E and for the first time I saw the upgrade offer (79 EUR for the leg to AMS).

I have to say though that the offer as such is fairly hidden (only after clicking the "Business Class" section in the seat map do you get it displayed), so I may actually have been offered it before without noticing it.

Flying LHR-AMS-LIS, I was offered upgrade during OLCI for the first leg at the price of 109USD and for the second leg at around 379USD. Later on, already at AMS, the transfer machine offered me an upgrade for the second leg at 79.

Offered upgrade on oversold GVA-AMS for €79. Didn't buy as it was obviously oversold and got op-up on an uncomfortable full Embraer.

No upgrade offered on AMS-MAN, flight wide open in both classes.

I was just offered a pay-upgrade (well, not actually offered, but the biz cabin appeared on the seat map) for my upcoming DUS-AMS flight: 65 euros!

The cheek of it is that there is no actual biz-class service on this short Cityhopper route (typical flying time is 35 mins in a Fokker-70)!

But no offer on the connecting AMS-GLA flight ... I guess that one's not oversold!
