    As already mentioned by others before EK seems to have a lot of upgrades for their Goldmembers.

    But what happens if they don´t give opups and you don´t want to fly Y ?

    Ek prides themselves with Instant upgrades which actually means you can even upgrade while getting onboard.

    Has anyone tried this ?
    What are your experiences ?

    It's a relatively straight forward process. You simply advise a member of the crew you wish to do an onboard upgrade. Remember, that these on the spur of the moment onboard upgrades will cost you more miles (than had you processed the upgrade prior to departure), depending on the route you are flying.

    Example:
    LHR-SIN (via DXB)
    Upgrade request prior to departure (ie service centre or 24hrs prior online)
    Y-J upgrade - 52,000 | Onboard Y-J upgrade - 57,500

    Each Pursar carries a laptop with your Skywards profile details, including Skywards miles balance. You simply agree to the deduction, and presto, the miles will be deducted from your account. You can only do a one-class upgrade (from Y-J or J-F). No chauffeur drive available at the destination if you do an onboard upgrade either.

    I have been trying to find a redemption chart for EK awards on their website but it seems they do not want to publish this ?
    All I could find was to check route by route.
    Does anyone have an overview ?

    I see the charts EK posted when the skywards devaluations were announced no longer work. Link to my analysis of the Skywards devaluation.

    Your earning chart seems to be correct.
    My ATH-DXB-SYD return will net 32k according to EK and this is in line with your data.
