Looks fairly full this far out. The loadings for the Sin to LHR leg are the same

QF 1SYD 3:55p → SIN 10:15p
F6 A4 J9 C9 D8 I0 W9 R9 T0 Y9 B9 H9 K9 M9 L0 G0

But more availability SYD to SIN so maybe a better chance for the first leg rather than the overall

QF1 SYD-SIN there are 12 vacant plus 4 blocked seats in J, 9 vacant plus 3 blocked in W
QF1 SIN-LHR there are 12 vacant plus 3 blocked, 1 vacant plus 5 blocked in W

But searching
QF1 SYD-LHR 7 vacant plus 3 blocked in J, 1 vacant plus 3 blocked in W

What fare class ticket did you get?

Generally upgrade requests are given for 1 sector

Seat maps aren’t that reliable unfortunately as not everyone selects a seat at time of booking (bizarre I know).
The other factor at play is that seat selection gets blocked once a certain percentage of seats have been allocated - meaning that some late bookings will not be able to select seats. The airlines do this to retain some flexibility to handle seat allocations for specific needs (e.g. bassinets etc.)

Hi
Anyone care to do a check for upgrade availability from economy to Business from Doha to Sydney with Qatar?

I’m looking at flying from DUB to SYD via Doha on either August 8/9 or 10 and would like to upgrade my partner and I for the second leg of our trip. Flight departs Doha at 20:35 local time. May convert my AEMX points to Q Miles if there is. TIA

Thank you so much for this. I’m a newbie here so I’m unsure what the Letters/Numbers mean?

Welcome

The first post of this thread will explain the fare buckets better than I can. In short you are looking for J C D and I availability for your desired upgrade to business and in particular you are looking for ideally 9’s in D and I as these are the cheapest fares for sale in business. 9’s in I class indicates that they haven’t sold many seats making an upgrade more likely.

The numbers for your flight options look good but the flights are a long way off. At this time you could book any of your flight options and you would have the same chance of an upgrade. This will change as the dates get closer
