Can you separate Qantas passengers in a Booking online?

I'm supposed to be flying MEL-PER tomorrow with a friend, and I made the bookings. It looks like he's not going to be able to travel as he's pulled up crook today and is off to get a test. On the QANTAS site it tells me I have to "separate" a booking if I need to cancel the booking for only some of the passengers, and it tells me I can find the separate option in the booking online. But I can't see it anywhere. I've called Qantas and am currently on hold, with an "over 2 hour" estimate. Do I have any other way forward here??

I've been able to separate bookings that have been classic rewards as well as cash fares. I can't speak to travel agent bookings. I'm quite sure I've even made a separation within 24 hours of travel but I can't recall the timeframe exactly

Out of curiosity, how/when were the bookings made (points? online? travel agent? etc)
I did it all online direct through the Qantas website, they're paid flights, no points used. Booked maybe 2 months ago. Kinda thought i'd meet all the requirements for being able to split, not sure why not.

2.5 hours on hold now. If I just turn up to the airport tomorrow would i be able to cancel his flight there and still get a credit, or is there a point where it's too late to do that?

I love that Qantas consistently lives up to the motto of "consistently inconsistent" even in times of COVID.

For what it's worth, I have had this exact issue on more than one occasion when trying to separate travel arrangements for Mr Seat0A and myself. These have required a phone call. Yet other times, the separate button has been there and worked perfectly 🤷‍♀️.
