I normally bid $5-10 above the minimum. Has worked the majority of the time

If the Business cabin is empty they may want to keep it that way unless economy is overbooked. There is a cost to having the cabin crew on providing a Business class service.


If they have at least some passengers booked in Business then they'd be more likely to consider accepting bids to upgrade.

How about upgrading for four?

In an 8 seat cabin good luck... I've put a few bids in when traveling as 4 and have never been successful but on the other hand bids done when traveling by myself at just above the minimum often clear.


I think VA status also plays a part.

I have bid twice (Syd - Per in the Suite and Mel - Cba) and been successful both times. I only bid the minimum allowed; worked so far (and I'm only Silver).
