 Found this oneup bid guide on Reddit - seems rather thorough. I'm in the UK and both bids failed (jade member) on the way over last week. Thoughts on this?

Demand > Supply after permutations = no seat

Supply > Demand regardless if you bid the lowest allowed - upgrade

It's a fairly good guide albeit with a few assumptions thrown in. I wrote a pretty comprehensive Air New Zealand upgrade guide on TravelTalk earlier in the year which explains how all the different upgrades fit into place.

 

At the end of the day One Up is at the very bottom of the upgrade list and the chances of one clearing between AKL and LHR probably sit somewhere between "very unlikely to happen" and "highly unlikely to happen".

Just enjoyed recognition upgrades AKL-HNL and HNL-AKL.

 

We didn't think we would get them on the way back.  Got the call up in the departure lounge.

 

Dreamliner on the way back.  Very comfortable flight but don't look at the wings during turbulence surprised
