Thanks,

I guess this means little chance for upgrading...

In my experience, on this route and at those loading levels, I would say zero chance of an OT upgrade.

You might not need one though .... I flew this route earlier this week (my OT Y+ to C upgrade didn't go through) and the plane was about as empty as I have ever seen - only 14 seats in the first Y cabin (72 seats) occupied. Several of the people in Y+ went back and claimed a whole 4-seat row for a lie-down during the flight.

You should have a good chance though of points upgrade at check-in if you still want to do that.

Here you go. But it is way to early to conclude on your upgrade chances. Ask again a week in advance...

Has SAS stopped offering UTo's via Optiontown on European routes?

I have OUL-CPH-DUS and ZRH-ARN-HEL-OUL coming up and Optiontown only gives option to get UTo for the last HEL-OUL flight(which is KF). Other ones are just UTo not available...

SAS has never offered UTo's on european routes, only on routes to USA and Asia. But Blue1 does.

Ok, thanks! :)

Is there any way to get UTo for a flight that SK is codesharing but is operated by Blue1?

Took today one intra-Finland and one HEL-CPH which were upgraded to "Premium" via Optiontown. Boardin passes show "Y" on fare class. Is this again some devaluation which KF/SK & Optiontown forgot to mention? There goes my extra miles down to the drain(main reason why i used OT). It used to be Z before?!

I had also Y in the boarding pass, but the ticket had Z and I got full miles. (1200 for domestic leg)

Suspected that also but wouldn't be surprised if they had devalued mileage earnings. Thanks for the heads up! Btw, OSL lounges are crap and the duty free seems to be overpriced(little bit moody after being awake 30hours straight).
