I was just offered on OS as I did online check in for 800 Euro (VIE-JFK, was an award economy seat)

Was offered an upgrade to Business on UA for about $800 (much less that the difference in fare). One way. ZRH-NYC.

What was the fare paid for the economy ticket? Was this offered during online checkin?
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

$513 RT. Summer dates. One of the lowest fare classes. Think it was K or L. Was offered during online check in. Was a day flight so I definitely didn't care for it.

Bids on LO work pretty good and I know people who upgraded from PE for only $250 (at least they used to, dont have any recent experience)
PS works in airport at check in but CASH only,  I don't think they have a set price but rather ask according to demand,  I wanted to upgrade before RH on a busy flight and they asked $800

J2 is very cheap onboard. Though, you need to be very flexible with your dates to fly with them

I can usually upgrade on PS from most fare classes (from the time of booking) for cheaper than the rates above, PM me.
