Do you fly on corporate business (or have your own business). If so then look at Flying Co which allows you to waitlist upgrades. My client had this coming back from SFO to LHR and even though the flight was only only selling 2 Full fare Business Class seats when booked (and zero a couple of days before he travelled) he got to use Flying Co points and upgrade at Check In. It is only 10,000 points for a one way upgrade (slightly lower earning rates than Flying Club) and if you use some fares only available through agents you can get cheaper S Class flexible fares that are upgradeable using either set of points.
