SAS increases Award Upgrade points
SAS silently increased amount of EuroBonus points required for an upgrade at the airport. The amount increased by 10 000 for all combinations, reaching maximum of 50 000 per upgrade from SAS Go to SAS Business.

It has not affected the Upgrade Bidding system (yet?), which you can use before departure to bid EuroBonus points or cash for an upgrade.
It is bad news, as SAS might continue devaluating EuroBonus points value. We might see Star Alliance award flights redemption increase in the near future, and let’s hope SAS will not do it same quietly!
