    Where are the awards?

    PS upgraded from Y to J SYD-NRT

    So one of my colleagues who is PS just told me that her and her NB husband got op-uped at the gate SYD-NRT on 18 December 2012. All of my FT/AFF knowledge makes me question how this could be? Surely single WP1/CL/WP/SG would have been given priority?
