better product to tokyo?
Which is a better product?
Which would give me a better chance to upgrade?
All Nippon Airways
(lax to tokyo)
How does one upgrade to business class when rate is so low?
Of the 3, SQ is probably the best product, followed by NH then UA. Are you looking for paid upgrades or upgrade with miles?
All 3 airlines have their own rules for upgrades but generally, you need to have booked into a specific fare class. Links to their rules are below:
UA also requires miles+cash for the upgrade, if space is available
SQ has a premium economy cabin on some planes and requires a different number of miles: [URL]https://www.singaporeair.com/saar5/pdf/ppsclub_krisflyer/charts/SQMI_OneWayUpgradeCharts.pdf[/URL]
NH is distance based [URL]http://www.ana.co.jp/wws/us/e/asw_common/amc/reference/tukau/upgrade.html[/URL]
Yes, Singapore first. But JAL also has a pretty good product, check here for more info. [URL]https://www.ar.jal.com/world/en/jalmile/award/jiug.html[/URL]
