upgrade fees

Hi all,

I know there are differing opinions regarding upgrades, but we're looking into it for a flight from MUC to somewhere on the west coast. But before we do, I was wondering

- what are the fees and taxes, from LH's side?
- if they are high would we get a better rate booking a codeshare flight and then upgrading through them?

Total newbie here, so spare me thanks for your help.

If you are upgrading with miles or vouchers, there are no taxes or fees.

If you are thinking of cash upgrades LH (in Europe anyway) charge the fare difference.

Y -> C upgrades with miles are not very good value. Much better to go for C awards if you have enough miles.
