    Hello all,

    Not sure if this has been asked before, but if I choose to upgrade to F on departure day at check-in..(and pay the $100 or whatever depending on length of route). How much mileage does AS give you?

    By the original Y class full mileage, or F class 50% bonus mileage?

    Thanks!

    No bonus for upgrades done at online check-in or the airport. This is a U class fare and you earn the miles of your original ticketed cabin.

    Don't let that discourage you from upgrading. AS does have a decent FC service, and $100 for a 4-6 hour flight is a real bargain IMO. :D

    I agree, a lot of their paid last-minute upgrades can be quite a bargain.

    I upgraded an AA award on AS for $50 (SLC to SEA segment only) and found it worth the $50 for the splurge. It was nice to start off the long trip to DCA with more space and a drink. Plus AA gave me credit for the AS flight, that segment only, so I recovered ~700 miles.
