Yes, if on holidays I will often choose a Vodka and Lemonade with breakfast even if its 0600You do get alcohol with your breakfast unlike in the lounge haha (I usually get a sparkling wine with mine but I think you can ask for a G&T going by my seatmate last month on SYD-ADL)
Nice work! And what did you think of it?I flew from Melbourne to Sydney last night on VA891. Originally got a Choice fare for less than $100
Made my bid for $70 - the lowest I could offer and won it. When I made the bid, only 2 seats were booked.
This was also my first time in Business Class - thought I would have a go and try it.
Not sure if there'll be any sales, but $299 (until it goes up due to fuel costs/etc.) MEL-SYD one way is quite reasonably priced.Loved the extra legroom, as well as the attention! The flight was delayed for over an hour waiting for one of the pilots, so to be seated in a roomy chair for nearly 3 hours was a bonus. We were served drinks too for longer. I will be keeping a look out for Business Class sales as well as future bids for sure!

Yep, minimum bid for the upgrade on each leg. All of the flights were chockers so that may have something to do with itWas that the minimum bid for upgrade ?

The paid UpgradeMe option is purely $ based. Submit the right bid at the right price and (subject to availability of course) you get the seat.
