I wanting to booking Economy (Standard/Flexi) flights for travel within the next 2 weeks and then hopefully use my Krisflyer miles to upgrade to Business Class. How can I be confident that there will be a chance of a few upgrade award Business seats being made available (using Saver/Advantage rates). There is no way to ascertain availability when making the Economy class booking. It would seem this is a game of chance and if it does not go your way you will be in an economy seat sitting next to someone who has paid much less than you have (if they have booked an Economy Lite seat). Is it better to make a booking much earlier than the departure date and then check upgrade availability? Any other tips?
Hi seymourmt, I would suggest checking whether there are any Business Saver left for your flight. Usually, if there are Business Saver seats left, you should be able to upgrade if your economy fare are eligible.
In addition, for future questions, please submit under the Q & A section instead of this. This section is for sharing tips and deals.
