Hi everyone,

I want to put in an upgrade me bid to business class from hkg to mel - what kind of success rate do people have and how much do you usually bid?

Could be very high if you do the minimum, except during Australian and/or Hong Kong public holidays.

Because HKG-MEL should have less customers than HKG-SYD.

Have upgraded myself via a bid twice on MEL-HKG sectors. Offered about $50 more than the minimum and both were successful. I believe it helps having status (doesn't cost VA for lounge use if you already have access) and also if you haven't successfully bid before.
