How quickly after booking can I bid for an upgrade?

Hi, I have to book flights via our business travel agent. I requested for the flights to be booked on an upgradeable fare - but the bid upgrade says it's not possible on this fare.

Has the travel agent made a mistake?

Assuming you are booked in the correct fare class, you can only submit the request once the booking is ticketed.

To see the booking class for each segment just go to "Manage my booking". Class N, O and Q can't be upgraded, everything else is upgradable.

Thanks.. it appears the fares are M and V so should be ok... maybe it hasn't been ticketed yet. Really appreciate you coming back so quickly :)

Points upgrade is different to a bid upgrade. Bid upgrades you have to be invited to do so. Not on all flights and not on all days. Can vary.

Strangely I've done it before by just googling a link and doing it without the invite
