    I am flying Frankfurt to US (connecting thru London airport),
    Frankfurt to LHR flight is on Lufthansa & LHR to US flight is on UA,
    if I apply upgrade to the UA flight, will I incur APD tax ?
    (even though the trip is originating from Frankfurt)

    As long as you're in transit and not breaking the journey with a stay in London you should be O.K. Assuming this is all on one ticket?

    You aren't subject to the APD only the passenger service charges if you're connecting in London (has to be not a stopover).

    MiPO has this excellent guide.
