Upgrade from Business to Suites

I'm on SQ26 later this week in full-fare business. Is there any chance SQ will upgrade me to Suites if space exists? I'm only *S and not with SQ ...

Separately, does SQ offer the opportunity to bid for upgrades / upgrade with miles or $? Didn't see it on my reservation.

Thanks in advance!

No chance.

No bidding from J to F, that's for PE only.

You can look for award space and upgrade using miles if it's available.

Upgrades using *A miles are subject to availability (ie unlikely).

The other option is to pay the fare difference to first class.

Bumping an old thread - is upgrade space the same as award space? And if so is it the same number of KF miles? I'm totally willing to buy a r/t J ticket and use miles to upgrade one direction to a suite, and would pick my J flight based on what F upgrade availability is out there.

Upgrade space is different from award space. The number of miles is less for upgrade space.

Well, it really depends whom youíre asking. Some people will tell you itís the same, some itís different. It books into the same fare class anyway, and I have been told by KF staff in the past that it is the same. I upgraded from PE to J (Or should I say ďIĒ?) not long ago. So I would look out for fully fledged redemption availability online and then call in when you find it. Or call and ask to be waitlisted on the flight youíre interested in. Thatís what i did.
