Bidding for upgrades - any "knack" to it?

3 posts in this topic

Never come across it before but just booked a Virgin Atlantic flight and I see an option to bid for an upgrade. Is it literally a case of start low and just keep going up until you get bored or do you only have 1 shot at it?

Just make one bid, I'd suggest the min plus £20-40. The bidding system will say you've made a poor bid however, it's not worth going crazy as you'll end up paying more than the ticket cost. 

If you never have flown in UC you're better off trying it during daylight hours to enjoy the service. On the redeye, you'll be paying an extra £700+ for an uncomfortable seatbed either wishing everyone else in the cabin would shut up so you can sleep or watching TV all night in a dark cabin wondering where all the cabin crew has disappeared to.
