I have booked outbound to USA in economy H (100%) and they offer me premium economy for $170 and business for $580.
Can I see the booking classes somewhere?

Similarly my return is in E (150%) and upgrade offer is $400 for business. I hope it is not an upgrade into P, as that would be a mile-wise downgrade.

Usually H will upgrade to E (PE) and P (Biz). E will upgrade to Z.

Sadly this is no longer the case. You get put in the next open booking class in the new cabin.

Price Changes Before Departure

I have a round trip sfo-fra next week.

im in PE and was able to upgrade my return flight for $510; it dropped from an original $810 price.

The outbound leg - leaving in 3 days -remains stuck at $1210 for the same upgrade to business.

With 11 business class seats showing as free in expert flyer, is there any likelihood of a price drop before check in? $1210 seems a bit much for the upgrade from a bulkhead premium economy seat but I'd consider it at a lower price.

FRA-LAX B--->PE US $230 to confirm upgrade; bidding tool started at $200.
Not much of a difference, but with PE space at 7 and at T-7 days, I tried bidding anyway.
Lost.
Now they want $690 to confirm the upgrade, no further bidding possible. But, PE space is now up to 8, and we're t-48 hours.

Perhaps a case for selling upgrades at the gate?

Gate sales are a bit more expensive and you do not get any extra miles ( although i think you might get more miles with a B fare).

I am booked on an upgraded ticket (Business, I class) for a flight later this week. First is completely wide open, but LH.com does not show any upgrade options. Will a StarAlliance miles upgrade or cash upgrade be made available before check-in or at the gate?

Got it, thanks. So an in-person offer at the gate would be the only hope?

I have never flown LH but need to fly next month from YYZ to AMM. On the return I would like to fly in PE at least. Can I purchase from EC to business too and roughly how much would it be and what class of fare would I have to buy in EC and also in PE if that's the case?
Would it be a gate purchase or before?
Any information would be much appreciated.
Thank you.

Look at your reservation on LH.com. if the cash upgrade is available you can do it right now. You could also bid for an upgrade on my offer. The last option is at the airport at a fixed rate. Upgrade to business is possible.

What is your advice? Are the Gate options better priced than the cash upgrades at reservation?

Cash on LH.com or myoffer is always cheaper than gate/airport.
