    Is it possible to cash upgrade to WT+ for one sector only (one way) when flying BA on QF ticket (ie: the Hong Kong to HTL sector). Flight Centre tells me no.

    Using QF points, no. You can only upgrade on flights with both QF metal and a QF flight number.

    Using BA points, not too sure.

    QF do not sell WT+ as a codeshare. You can only buy a QF codeshare ticket in WT, CW or F. Until recently, you could not buy QF in J on BA since their J products were quite different until QF installed the skybeds.

    BA used to allow on-board upgrades by paying some large number of pounds. I am not sure if they will permit that with a QF codeshare ticket. However, if they still do on-board paid upgrades, I can't see why they would be concerned if you were on QF or BA ticket.

    So the question is whether BA still do on-board paid upgrades?

    Just checked BA's web site and this is what they say about paid upgrades:
    Since you have purchased a QF ticket and QF do not offer WT+, the only paid upgrade option will be from WT to CW and that is going to cost a lot of money.

    There is the onboard upgrade, which you ask the CSD when you board.

    IIRC it's $500 per sector - a sector being SYD-SIN or LHR-BKK.

    If you wish to upgrade prior to boarding, you'll need an elegible economy fare - and that certainly isn't one of the cheaper ones. I think it has to be M class or above.
