Airport Upgrades (Virgin) - can you pay in miles?

I'm hoping I can upgrade all 4 of us (2AD 2CH) to from EC to PE when we arrive at the airport.

Can I pay for one of the Upgrade seats using miles (I've only got around 19K) or will they all have to be done together with cash?

Unless they have changed their rules no you cant use miles & even if could 19k I'm afraid will go no where. MCO is also the most popular route & the chances of upgrading at the airport are very very slim i'm afraid.

Sorry, should've said we're flying to Miami, there's 7 seats left in PE and it's only a one-way upgrade (we're in UC for the return).
But that's all moot anyway if the rules say no.

That is not true. If you have a ticket that is upgradable then they will accept miles. I've even seen them accept miles once you are onboard the plane.

You can use miles at the airport, I have done it more than once. One thing to remember is that you are liable for the extra taxes and surcharges which must be paid in cash.

All true, the extra taxes are the kicker.

Finding someone who knows how to process the miles upgrade is the big issue though. If you have a gold tier FC membership it's best to just check-in and do the upgrade at the lounge as everyone there knows how to process the miles upgrade

As above. It is possible but you'd only have enough miles to upgrade 1 to Premium (if you have upgradeable tickets). The extra taxes out of london are over 100 though. You can often get cash prices upgrades for not much more.
