    Hi all,
    Does anybody know please is it possible to upgrade part of your journey to First Class at the weekend in say VT or LNER and spend the rest in Standard?
    Or is it all or nothing...?
    Thanks!

    I don't see why not. I've certainly done it with a change of train where one didn't have 1st.

    If it's on one train I would say no, specifically if you are paying the lower of the two LNER prices. If you pay the full whack then yes.

    Why would you not be able to as long as you leave First Class at the right time, or only enter it after the lower fare becomes applicable?

    You may well be able to find a Train manager that will allow it but my money is on most not.

    On SWR my experience has been varied. Some insist your upgrade must match the part of the journey covered by the ticket, some are happy to sell it starting later (after all you might only discover the existence of weekend first en-route), some are happy to sell to a specific point:you could after all be breaking your journey, taking an alternative route etc

    SWR sell the Weekend 1st in zones, as far as I understand it, so its usually a case of checking on your journey where the zone might cover you on your journey
