Does CS offer an online upgrade? Is it possible to pay with money for an upgrade or only miles? If someone has any idea how much will cost an upgrade to bussines class for a flight from Guangzhou to LHR?

Thanks in advance

An educated guess is that it will be in the range of Euro 1000 to 1500. Not sure about online upgrade, but ask at physical check-in at the airport. If you don't like the quoted price, ask the cabin crew once you board the aircraft.

You haven't stated which class you want to upgrade from, the difference between upgading from economy to business will be different than premium economy to business.

#1 cabin crew do not normally if ever offer upgrades on demand and I am not even sure that they have the authority to do so unless there are exceptional circumstances

We just did an upgrade with China Eastern last month and cabin crew knew exactly what to do. Though I don’t know if they accept credit cards as form of payment because we used AliPay.

But of course that doesn’t necessarily mean that China Southern is offering that option as well.
