Thanks both! Very helpful. We'll see if I get the opportunity to upgrade to Business on the BOS - DOH leg, the money would be better spent there anyway.

Oh wow... that is one expensive upgrade! Some of these offers are simply ridiculous. I wonder if it's a trap: you click OK to upgrade and orderlies come knocking, with a straight jacket for you.

Wow. I just received and upgraded BKK-DOH today. To business. I don't think that there is a 1st. It's an A330 and the upgrade was ~ $780 which is expensive. I've upgraded the other way for as low as $520.

It's a ....ing mess by the way. Qatar systems don't speak with each other. I was offered the upgrade and then selected my seat, and then was issued a different seat at the check-in. Which I challenged and then go the seat I ordered, and had received CONFIRMATION of..

$1,200 online upgrade offer for DOH-CMN. Which is a 8 hour flight. I'm use to $575 upgrades for DOH-BKK. No idea why this increase.

I would like to think that maybe it will go down. I would also like to think that I am a great golfer...

BA Credit

Can anyone confirm whether the upgraded flights would be eligible for increased Avios/TPs, or would you get credit for the original fare class?

When you UG you get credit for the original fare.
