I didn’t - we just upgraded to first class at the gate when we checked in. We tried to bid on the way back but the site shuts down a few hours before the flight so we again had to buy at the gate. It was great - I live for the lay down seats.

I think it was $700/person going to Europe and $600/person coming back - if I could do it again, I’d try and bid for a lower amount and see if that worked. We didn’t bid so I’m not sure if it’s cheaper, but I imagine you may have better luck bidding
