    So today is D-353 for my honeymoon return leg which we are intending to complete in style in business.

    Wake up at 7am, no award fares available in any class on QF.

    9am - economy fares become available.

    Refresh website 300 times throughout the day... No premium fares or alternate routes yet.

    What time do they normally become available? It's an off-peak time to fly, hoping to have it up soon!


    PS: I am QF gold.

    There is no guarantee that anything beyond economy will be available at all.

    It depends on a route. US West Coast is very rare; South America (Santiago) is even worse. Asia/London seems to be better; however, as I said you might not be seeing anything in business or first coming up at all on the particular day you want to fly. You really need to be flexible with your dates and/or consider alternatives (leaving from another port, indirect routes etc).

    Also, from my experience some seats in business/first do show up later. For example, I was looking for 2 F seats SYD-LHR for April 2015 and there was nothing available in April but some dates available in March and quite a few in February.

    Good luck!

    Midnight UTC or 10am in Brisbane is when any that may appear, will.
