VIE-BKK, September 2014: bid about 315 Euro each for two seats (so, 630 Euro altogether), rejected.

Interestingly, they did have seats available when we asked at the counter--for 800 Euro each (yikes!). I also wanted to say thanks for this thread! It was very helpful!

I asked in VIE about the experience and the Ground stuff told me no chance for BKK.

Just added to the wiki. Bid 300 each way JFK VIE EWR and accepted both ways. Very good value imo.

I will be bidding on BKK-VIE in early December. Does the original booking class make a difference? Is there any recent experience? Danke!

In my experience no. There are reports of upgrades from the cheapest classes.

I just quickly browsed through the thread and have one question - will they really upgrade into P and credit miles according to that?

Same on the "red|upgrade"?
