Paid update to first class/business class?

Our travel agent told us to go to the Austrian ticket check in before our flight. She stated that we might get first ticket for the international portion of our flight cheaper that way. We are flying from TO to VIE . First class update is now $4000.00.

Has anyone had success in doing this last minute upgrade?

By paying $4000, I'm sure they have.

Perhaps there are offers on the day, perhaps not. Only way to know, is to ask, >>on the day<<. The fact I got an upgrade yesterday for say $2000 doesn't mean you will tomorrow, it depends how many people on the flight, on how much your ticket cost, on airline policies. All change, some every day. If its imperative you fly first (or business) pay now.

If you're looking for an upgrade to F on Austrian you'll be disappointed as they don't have it anymore.

The only way to guarantee seating in a certain class is to pay, in advance for it. Anything on the day of the flight is a bonus--that you do not count on or assume will be available!

As OP2002 says, Austrian don't have a first class.
