Hiya Folks!

Haven't done any VA operated international flights, so was wondering if anyone has tried to pay for upgrades at check in? How much would it usually cost you think?

I am a Velocity Platinum Member, flying from MEL-LAX and then later on the way back LAX-BNE. I have booked on an Elevate Fare (flexi was $800 more! Just ridiculous!!!!)

Thanks guys!

I have asked for a paid upgrade twice from Premium Economy to Business on an LAX flight. Each were successful, as there were seats free. Valued at about $1300aud if I remember correctly. I imagine economy would be more. Also, $800 more for Flexi is standard across VA and QF I'm afraid!

You'll have the opportunity to bid for an upgrade before the flight, although this may depend on the fare class purchased
