experience with latam business upgrade bidding...
 
does anyone have any experience with LATAM's business class bidding before a flight? my wife and I are flying coach, and want to take a chance to upgrade, we will bid 300 per person for the upgrade, but I think you only find out 12 hours before?

It uses Plusgrade, a lot of airlines are using this system. There is a minimum bid and you find out if you get the upgrade 12 hours before the flight via mail. If the J Cabin is too full, you may get the upgrade confirmation at the gate. Sadly you don't get to know how many empty seats there are, neither how many people are in the waitlist and what position you are

LATAM Black (OWE) gets their complementary upgrade first, then biddings, then Platinum and Gold (OWS and OWR) and finally airline employees.



Good luck

Good luck

im surprised they only let you know 12 hours before, it would be nice to know sooner so as to know if we can bring another checked luggage...

I think checked baggage allowance doesn't change? I have a screenshot of the upgrade bidding website and it just mentions as benefits: check-in preferente, embarque preferente, acceder a salones VIP.
