cheap biz upgrade with LX for selected flights in Europe

It looks like we can get 200% points for upgraded biz flights with SWISS. They have an offer to upgrade economy tickets for 560 dkk each way. For CPH I found the following destinations in J class r/t;

# from DKK 2876.-Barcelona
# from DKK 2960.-Budapest
# from DKK 3186.-Florence
# from DKK 3401.-Istanbul
# from DKK 2935.-Milan
# from DKK 3075.-Nice
# from DKK 3235.-Rome
# from DKK 3220.-Thessaloniki
# from DKK 3133.-Venice
# from DKK 2531.-Zurich

It looks like you pay 560 dkk each way for a standby in J class, but while you are not assured a seat in biz, you will get the 200% Eurobonus points.

From the website:

Business benefits at a glance

* More award and status miles for Miles & More members
* Check in on the web
* Separate check-in counter at the airport
* Priority service at baggage claim
* Business baggage: 30 kg allowance, 2 carry-ons (8kg limit per carry-on)
* Access to the lounge
* Selection of daily newspapers in various languages
* Breakfast, lunch and supper with beverages of your choosing, depending on flight time

Terms and conditions
The Business upgrade fares are based on SWISS Economy fares. Rebookings or refunds are thus governed by the same terms and conditions as the underlying Economy fare. If the upgrade booking class is unavailable, any price difference between the underlying Economy fare and the Business upgrade fare cannot be refunded. The upgrade fares are only valid for flights operated by SWISS in Europe.

i don't think it is standby... it is just that if the eco fare allows for changes and that you change your booking to a flight that has no J class available (and pay fare difference and change fee if any), you will seat in eco. If you don't change your flights, you get biz seat as confirmed at booking. This way, passengers who need to make changes are not restricted to open-J bucket.
