    In theory British Airways has an extremely generous upgrade program. For example, you can upgrade from business class to first class for the difference in cost between a first and business class award. A discounted business class ticket between New York and London would only require 20,000 Avios to upgrade one-way, with no co-pay. That's a pretty darn good deal, if you ask me. The catch is that there needs to be award space in the cabin you're trying to upgrade to. And there's no way to waitlist an upgrade. In the past British Airways was great about releasing award space last minute, though they've been getting stingier and stingier lately. In other words, even if 100 people are waitlisted for upgrades, they'll let the premium cabin go out with empty seats if there's no award space.
