ime before auction days it was 700 onboard tlv-ny 750 tlv-lax. dan how did your friend pull it off for 200?
they used to have "business seats with coach service" for $250 on the tlv-nyc route.   it was only when business class was pretty empty, so you couldn't count on it.

when I was setting up a kosher meal.
a request for a bid came up to book business class
minimum was 600.

is it better to take my chances and try and get an upgrade at the service counter rather then bidding pre flight
