Viscount: very cool! I've never had KL
offer me an upgrade. Like you said the flights are fairly short...no difference in seat other than maybe a bit more leg room in the first 5-7 rows and the middle seat blocked. I fly HEL
quite often and never got asked if I wanted an upgrade. I have flown it in C before and other than a hot bfast and more personal attention, its pretty much the same as Y. I'll save my money for other things
I actually don't mind flying coach in Europe..pretty good service all around. I dread it in the US though....ugh.
ACDC8: Thats incredible!! I hope you took them up on that
So I guess it can happen but I wouldn't hold my breath for these kinds of deal to come along all the time. I know DL
does not do any special fare upgrades on intl long haul flights..and have to say I'm a bit surprised about some of these examples.
So as we have learned, it never hurts to ask
