Hey, I am interested in lashing out 35,000 miles from my LH M&M program for an upgrade on SQ25 JFK-FRA on 19th of May. M&M says at present there are no C Class seats for upgrade available, but it could open up.
Does anyone have access and can verify how the situation overall is? In which class would I be upgraded (certainly not J/C, eh, but some other booking class)..
I assume seats might be available, but guess that only a few are for airline partner upgrades?
How are the general loads? Maybe a chance for a free upgrade of Eco is full, as I am booked on Y and not Q or any other sub-category?

For the loads of the flights, recently I have been hearing that the loads for the flights are not very good.
Chances for an operational upgrade are really slim unless you are part of the PPS or Solitaire PPS
Even if you are star gold, SQ doesn't seem to value them. They only really care about Solitaire PPS and PPS
Its a program exclusively for business and first class passengers on SQ. Standard PPS member has many more benefits than the star gold member, you get to check-in and relax at the business class counters, you have access to the virgin clubhouse, and many other rewards.
Solitaire PPS/ Life PPS are PPS members who travel (250,000???) miles on SQ or MI in business and first in one calendar year. They receive first class treatment everywhere
