While visiting the LOT lounge in WAW recently, I came across an advertisement for a program with LOT that allows those seated in coach class to bid for business class seats. See: http://www.lot.com/us/en/lot-upgrade Other airlines have similar programs, including Austrian Airlines and Iberia, and a here's a link to an article describing those programs: http://www.cnn.com/2013/09/03/travel/place-your-bid-for-business-class/ Has anyone in the Milepoint community bid on seat upgrades? Have you been successful at doing this? Would you care to share any strategies for doing this? Thanks!
