I am flying on Etihad from Toronto to India. I have booked a round trip for business class but due to less availability, I was only booked for business on my return flight and economy on my outgoing flight.
However, surprisingly I have received an e-mail from Etihad about an upgrade offer. Etihad has asked me to place an offer for how much I am willing to pay for an upgrade on my outgoing flight. The range of the offer is a minimum of $1500 (CAD) and goes up to $2500 (CAD).
At this moment, I honestly feel bad, I feel like it is a loss for me to offer such a high price for an upgrade offer. I was wondering if I should ignore the e-mail and request for an upgrade at the airport during check-in, would that be cheaper?
