    I checked in for my SEA-SFO flight today and got offered an upgrade for $1,159. Yes, not a typo. I'm on a "K" fare. You can buy FC on this route for less than $400 OW usually.

    I thought this was comical. I'm #1 on the upgrade list for 2 seats currently.

    Technically, that would have been a 115.9 TOD offer, not a 1159 TOD offer.

    I had the same thing on Monday, 95.9TOD for DEN-SJC. Yeah, um, nope.
    Conversely, had a 12.9 TOD offer for the SJC-DEN flight I'm on right now. Compared to a non-reclining non-exit middle seat, I'll take that, thank you very much.

    Ok, I always thought TOD was referring to the fact they sell upgrades for "tens of dollars" and it didn't have to do with the 10x factor. So I guess if your logic is correct then it was a $159.9 "TOD" offer. Either way, ABSURD.

    Thousands of Dollars. It's called inflation, I guess :)

    I did not.

    And in fact one more person jumped off the flight so there were three open. About 10 minutes later CPU ran and I got the *free* upgrade. Two open again and the list is 22 deep and growing as the flight is still 3+ hours away.
