Okay. So bidding is possible.
What about an upgrade with miles?

Awards cannot be upgraded with miles or evoucher. Only Myoffer bids or cash upgrade at checkin/gate.

As a SEN, you get "I" tickets confirmed most of the times, whereas "O" bookings go on waitlist.
What you can do instead of bidding with cash is waitlist O class after confirming the "I" ticket.
When the waitlist clears, you have to call M&M to exhange the I ticket into an O ticket and pay 50€ for the exchange.
O-class often won't clear until the last few weeks or even days before departure, this is my experience.

That does not match my experience in the last 2 years.
Booked award in I and changed later to O or booked I and was put on waitlist for O during booking process from agent.
In both cases I only had to pay the miles difference, no cancellation and new booking necessary.

Technically speaking this is correct, albeit the LH app actually calls it an "upgrade", quote: "Ihr Upgrade fr Flug LHxxx befindet sich aktuell auf der Warteliste".
If the waitlist clears and you call M&M to go ahead, they charge the I to O miles difference plus the 50 change fee.

Actually it worked out to an average of 1660 per flight. I checked flights on TG and TK and they were more than 2000. I checked on flights from Copenhagen, Oslo and Paris and they were in the same ballpark along with the inconvenience and expense of getting there.
The outgoing flights were around 1300. The return flights were more expensive. All in all, its a pretty fair price I think. Sometime well burn our miles.
