PLEASE INCLUDE DATE, FLIGHT NUMBER, ORIGIN & DESTINATION IN ALL REQUESTS
>>>> ADDED BY ADMIN (6 Sept 2010) <<<<



Background to this thread
We have noticed an increase in the posting of questions about seat availability on specific flights. These are all valid questions and we all appreciate the efforts our members go to to provide answers.

The only drawback is that our forums can become "cluttered" with specific questions about availability on specific flights. This tends to reduce the overall usability of our site.
We have therefore created this new consolidated thread where you can ask questions about seat availability on specific flights. Hopefully, this will reduce clutter and improve useability.

Guidelines for posting in this thread
Please post questions about availability of specific flights or upgrade probability in this new consolidated thread. Be sure to include the airline, flight number, date, origin and destination and any other relevant detail.

When answering questions, please include the original question. This will assist in readability and management of the thread.

Thanks!



For Questions about Aircraft Configuration and Seat Availability, please use this thread:​




TIP: Note that it is possible to check loadings yourself (for free)!

There is a complimentary/free service/facility available.

A site has been around for a while has recently changed and fare bucket loadings may be now checked at no direct cost:

Flight Availability - BCD Travel



See this thread for hints on how to read loadings:


If looking for, say Qantas points upgrades, look for A class for first, mid to high D or any I class for Business and any R for PE.

Look for the most expensive category of the cabin YOU are currently booked in as being sold out e.g. J0 to first, W0 to Business & Y0 to PE for increased op-up chances. Also, look for availability on the discount premium buckets (A, P, I, D, U, T & Z inventories).

Conversely, look for high numbers in the discount economy buckets (N, O, Q, E & X inventories) for reduced op-up chances.

Seat maps can be a VERY rough guide but note that just because a seat is not showing as allocated does not mean that seat hasn't been sold. Not every pre-selects seats.




>>>> END OF ADMIN UPDATE <<<<

Original thread title: update on QF93 on 12 sept

Appreciate it if someone could check EP for loadings.

Would someone please be able to check loadings on QF128 for Sunday night? Am hoping to move from Y+ to J.

There's a couple of us hanging out for an upgrade so the numbers will be appreciated.

Looks good

J9 C9 D9 I8 W3 R0 T0 Y9 B9 H9 K9 M9 L9 V9 S9 N9 Q9 O9 G0 X9 E9
And for those of us on QF30 not so good:

The numbers haven’t changed too much so they haven’t started processing upgrades yet

QF 128 HKG 8:00p → SYD 6:55a
J8 C8 D8 I7 W2 R0 T0 Y9 B9 H9 K9 M9 L9 V9 S9 N9 Q9 O9 G0 X9 E9

Hi and welcome to AFF when asking for loading's please provide the departure and arriving city as this helps those looking it up for you immensely.

I realise a little far out, but I'm curious for Y to J upgrades.

6/7/18 QF7 SYD - DFW
16/7/18 QF12 JFK - SYD

Actually a little curious how the upgrade lottery works for QF12 given the change of aircraft in LAX. Who gets priority. Someone all the way from JFK as opposed to someone joining in LAX?

Firstly, thank you for such a quick response! :)

Thanks looking relatively promising from my understanding.

QF12 looks to show the loadings for JKF to LAX I suspect. Ie, not showing anything for the F and A buckets.
