    I'm looking at HKG PE bookings post 1 July, and noticed that it appears some discounted PE fares are to be treated as "flexible Economy" for the purpose of Flight Upgrade Awards - meaning on SYD-HKG, that would require 40k points for Y-J rather than 25k for PE-J. I don't recall reading this as one of the changes posted by Red Roo here or in the mass QFF email (I could be wrong though). But if this is true, this is a substantial diminution in the value of PE fares.

    Flexi Economy upgrade rates are the same as Premium Economy anyway - so there shouldn't be a difference.

    Unless this is also changing or I'm mistaken?

    Then why the difference in wording in the above examples if what you say is true?

    Flexible Economy is the equivalent to full Economy (Y fare bucket only) which is the same as PE as far as points required for an upgrade are concerned. HTH.
