If you're on a 737 flying up front internationally, it has always been a toss-up. For example, one of the routes I frequent to central america, IAH-GUA, has been booked to F as long as I can...

It seems to me like it is pretty much the same system, except you can burn 2 GPU equivalents for economy -> business when you purchase a fare that isn't W or higher. You do lose the "refunding the...
