I did, kinda, but not with LH. I used the KVS tool to check KF availability for Saver and Standard. And then entered the ticket and flight details on the M&M online upgrade site, which checks availability as well. Upgrade was confirmed right away. No hassle at all.
Within minutes, the KF site showed my booking split in two with a separate PNR number for the upgraded leg. Seats and meals are selectable online. For once, *A does seem to provide seamless integration.

Only downside, the M&M mini site is not very user friendly when it comes to selecting airports and filling out some other fields. That might be a browser issue though.

For fun, I tried to upgrade SQ25, but the mini site came back with 'contact your M&M team'.

So you booked the ticket via SQ and then upgraded via LH?

Just upgraded with LH MM Senator Vouchers successfully from C to F on SQ 326 from SIN - FRA on Apr 15... sweet ... i know the seats are just more spacious etc. but looking forward to the F-Class Lounge in SIN T3 and some good Krug Champagane and the big TV screen... I was surprised that the upgrade went through. Sweet

Despite the recent changes to LH (and this development), YES. Waiting on the "EXPERTS" here to weigh in.

HUGE AL, I'm no 'EXPERT', but happy to share my not complete knowledge and experiences with M&M. But do we want to keep hijacking this thread?

Wow! I scored two upgrades using LH eVouchers:

BCN-SIN in August, upgraded from D.
PEK-SIN in September, upgraded from D.

Saver awards were available for Krisflyer members for both flights.

Congrats, SMK77! But why 'waste' two eVouchers on the flight from PEK-SIN? It's not saving you that many miles for that flight.

True. I wasn't intending to use them but the request had already been made. I am sitting on 12 eVouchers that expire early 2013, so I don't mind.

BCN-SIN is 2 eVouchers or 65.000 LH miles to upgrade = 32.500 miles saved per voucher.

PEK-SIN is 2 eVoucher or 45.000 LH miles to upgrade = 22.500 miles saved per voucher.
