    Has anyone ever paid for an upgrade on JAL from economy or premium economy to executive class (business)? Is this even possible or is it only done with miles? www.jal.com/world/en/jalmile/award/jal_up_today.html

    I want to buy a premium economy ticket and potentially upgrade it at the airport by paying the fee (whatever it is). However, I don't know if this is even feasible...

    You have two choices

    1. Upgrade with JMB miles/upgrade points
    2. Pay the fare differences between your ticket and the lowest available executive class fare on your flight PLUS any penalty and ticketing fees

    Yep. And that can be quite a fare difference (depending on what route you're flying). (>o<)

    Is there a chart that would show the amount of miles needed on an international flight for an upgrade?

    Thanks!
    Is it also possible to upgrade with points from AA since their both in One World?
