On my next LX179 (SIN) I am currently booked in business (J!) so I hoped that my upgrade would clear faster. Flight is in about 20 days and I am on the WL as there is only one seat left for sale F1. I understand they try to sell it but on the other hand a J fare is also not really cheap so I would appreciate if it clears 😁.

Absolutely Im in C or D (never in P or Z except intra-eu) so that's where I use my free Globals rather than 2 Evouchers The Evouchers I keep for upgrades on LX to F since they are usually confirmed instantly by the LX Senator line when F>=4

Unfortunately, plans at LH for upgrades from P/Z do not seem to be very concrete yet.

UPDATE: Meanwhile the upgrade has cleared
It was F1J5C0 when it cleared. I guess some pax cancelled and then the upgrade confirmed. Now F1J8C0. Assume the bc J helped a bit ?
