I think it's pretty uncommon for anyone to pay full fare for a business or first-class seat. That $7500 price may be inflated to create the appearance of savings. I think most people get an upgrade as a card perk or pay with miles.
WEMC cards give upgrades on full fare tickets with some airlines, but not Cathay. I go for cheap cash prices or bargain use of MRs/URs for economy, so I'm not sure which cards are best.
