Become an elite.
In the US, for domestic flights, you can upgrade on most airlines once all elites have been upgraded for a certain amount...normally $50 for short-haul, $75-150 for mid-range flights, and $150-200 for trans-continental flights. In the rare case that airlines are in need of seats on trans-oceanic flights, I've heard they sell them for $500-800 (US offers passengers the right to buy up to Envoy for $500 24 hours before departure), but some airlines (UA I believe) only offer this benefit when coach is oversold, and on others (I believe DL) doesn't offer it (good luck getting a day-of-departure international upgrade on DL...it doesn't happen).

Quoting Ha787 (Thread starter): i would like to know what the cost is to upgarde on different airlines around the world?
You are going to have to be far more specific....this is an impossible question for anyone to answer; are talking Y to F, Y to J, J to F, upgrading with miles, which airline, etc, etc. There is no general rule.
Do some research on fares on individual airline web sites to get an idea.....you just joined a.net, welcome, but why not do some work on your own before asking a question such as this....members will answer, but it must be a question that can be answered.
