Hello to all you helpful folk,

A quick enquiry. I am currently booked on QF 52 from Singapore-Brisbane on 25th November with a requested upgrade to business. As a lowly Silver QFF I am not holding my breath, although ithe request was processed two months ago.

If there is little chance I am looking to change my flight to an earlier option, thus saving money on accomodation. If someone could forward the expert flyer breakdown for this flight, and also the same flight two days earlier (Thursday 23rd), I would be most grateful.

Thanks in advance

Craig:)

QF52 25 Nov

J3 C2 D0 I0 U0 Y2 B1 H1 K1 M1 R0 L0 V0 S0 N0 Q0 O0 G0 T0 X0 E0

QF52 23 Nov

J1 C1 D0 I0 U0 Y2 B1 H0 K0 M0 R0 L0 V0 S0 N0 Q0 O0 G0 T0 X0 E0

Based on that I would guess chances are better on 25 Nov - but not looking good either day.

cbd089 wont have a choice unless booked in Y or B - there is no availability to switch to the earlier flight.

I have been on QF51/52 a number of times now and have found that this route is one of the higher utilised QF routes to SIN. Business class has always been full and economy only ever a few seats available, if any.

And for this reason it requires more capacity than the 767 it was downgraded to. Used to be a 744, then 743 regularly, then A330 and now down to a 767. This is why I route to Europe via MEL on QF29, as well as the chance for a points upgrade to F.

767! When did this happen? I flew back on QF52 in late July on an A330 and it was very close to full.

Ahh. My bad. I had the BNE-HKG flight on my brain, not SIN. Lets hope I have not given Qantas any ideas for enhancement on the BNE-SIN route :shock: .

Any further downgrading of this service would cause havoc.
