Hi all

I have never used points to upgrade on Qantas.

I want to book Premium economy from SYD to LHR return and on the return leg I would like to request an upgrade.

qu1: If I am booked on say QF 32 LHR to SYD via SIN... can I request an upgrade on JUST the LHR SIN leg? Or not, seeing as I am booked the whole way through?

qu2: How are loads in J class on QF 32 vs QF 2? And which do you think is more likely to happen?

qu3: How often are upgrades like this awarded? (using Y to J as Y+ doesn't exist yet) - small chance or big chance or?

Thanks in advance!

Best way to tell is do an award seat search and see if there are any seats left in the class you want to be upgraded to. My experience is its damn hard to get a QF upgrade.....

Reality is you wont know until you fly and by then you have already resolved to end up stuck in cattle class.

Call the service centre they will be most helpful if you have already booked



Where's the passion gone out of the airline industry? The smell of jetfuel and the romance of taking a flight....

I believe you can request an upgrade for one leg of the journey. However, I'm not 100% on that. Whenever I've requested an upgrade, I've only been flying the segment to Australia on QF, with other airlines for the rest.

It all depends on if seats are available, time of the year, and so on.

I got upgraded from Discount Economy to Business on BKK-SYD in July right before World Youth Day. I thought I didn't have a chance in hell, and had requested one to Y+ if I didn't get the J, but I got the J.

Put in the request, you'll know if you got it when it happens. Awards on QF are given by order of status - Platinums get their requests first, Golds, Silvers, then Bronze - all subject to availability in the cabins requested of course.



I do quite enjoy a spot of flying - more so when it's not in Economy!
