Virgin Atlantic upgrade bidding

Hi, we have never flown Virgin Atlantic before ... we are booked PE Hong Kong to London in a couple of weeks and want to bid for an upgrade ... any advice? The flight looks to be only half full ... does that give a lower bid more chance? We know how much works in Australia but no idea with Atlantic. Has to be cash, we can't use points.

Thanks.

Just like with any other auction; bid what you can afford.

You can not tell how full the flight is from the seat plan as only a few people seem to pay to pre-book their seats these days. You might well find it is a lot fuller than you think.

I've found that even the lowest 'bid' for VA flights is actually quite pricey. But it's transparent all the same, so you know what you are getting yourself into. UC is a very nice experience and is one of my favourite BC offerings.

The OP is asking about VS, not VA.

If you bid and your bid is refused, cant you just make a higher bid?
