VS Upper Class upgrades

Wed Oct 02, 2019 6:58 pm

So, gearing up for my flight at the end of the month, I see the first class section is pretty much empty, so I wanted to ask veterans:

1. What are the chances of being offered a free upgrade from premium economy? Premium economy is almost full, but if you were to upgrade everyone, there would still be seats in Upper Class so it's not too cutthroat.

2. Does VS offer the chance to buy the seat at discount at check-in? Right now they're asking for over $2000, but wanted to see if they follow US airlines where they drastically drop the price upon check-in...

Are you a status holder/frequent flyer.
What kind of ticket do you have?

It's not only a matter of "space available".

I think a free upgrade would be highly unlikely, unless you held a considerable status with the airline.

It's definitely worth asking about paid upgrades though. Last year, a buddy and I bought the remaining two Upper Class seats on the LGW-LAS flight. We were going from PE -> Upper Class, and the cost was £950pp.
