Please keep us posted. I have a feeling that upgrades within the 24-hour window are generally cheaper than online bidding - so long there are seats available.

YYC-SFO
Bid $125/seat for two seats at T-12, offer rejected.

I did not see where I could find out the chance of acceptance grid.

They were asking $139 for the return flight YWG-YOW. I declined and got seat A row 14 for free. The load on the return flight was higher, which I assume is why the upgrade cost was more.

WWFTD?

Sep 14 WS15 BCN-YYZ
$600 minimum offer

Currently showing 5 tickets available only in PremiumFlex ($2700ish), so I'm thinking it's not likely they'll sell them at that price. I have no idea about the load factors for this route or if it's likely that these will be offered to Gold or Platinum early (I'm neither).

Any ideas what the cost of upgrading at check-in would be?

BCN-YYZ ended up being 470 Euros, or approx $680 Canadian at check-in.

YVR-OGG

T-10 days

The range is $405-$610 for outbound, which seems incredibly high to me. Return flight is $300-$585.


A clear no from me, I'll see if there's an offer at T-24.
