If someone has a bit of spare time could they please check QF71 PER-SIN 25/7/19.

Expertflyer shows one spare and some blocked left in J so I’m not liking my chances of an upgrade.

Thank you. I hope I get it. Will keep this thread posted
So I've got an update and it's not a good one :'(

I'm in the QF HKG lounge right now and I've been told that the flight is delayed from 19:40 to 21:00 and there are no business/ premium economy seats left for upgrades and all the cabins are overbooked !! looks like I'm not going to travel any kind of premium today.

Had a chat w/ the host and was able to secure a bulk-head window only.

BTW, if anyone is in the QF HKG lounge - let's catch up :)

Bummer. It looks like all four HK->AU flights are running as scheduled tonight, so no major disruptions that should have caused this (the small delay isn't really material). No cancellations on VA or CX either. There must be some group travel or other event that has elevated bookings higher than normal.

I think so too ... but QF128 is already re-scheduled 4 times so far.I just checked with the host and she says that the departure time now of QF128 is around 9 PM instead of 7:40 PM and all classes are fully booked

Thank you as always pjm99au - appeared to look ok on qantas. There are no reward seats available, but it did let me book 9 business class tickets. Would have rather liked to book reward biz seats. I'll take my chances and pay for economy seats in the hopes for an upgrade.

Could someone please update me on QF94 on the 26th? Really looking forward to a QF flight after the abysmal service and attitudes on AA.

Possible, probably too early to call. Check again about 5-6 days before departure after the P1 upgrades have been processed.

The upgrade fairy tells me it's looking good at the moment but of course you never know how many late bookings or late upgrade requests may come in and scoring 3 upgrades is always harder than scoring 1! Good luck!

Could I please get the loadings for QF 11 SYD-LAX on 6/08 next week?

And for bonus points, any opinion from the brains trust of chances for upgrade to J from PE Sale. Thanks!

(Edit: despite having an upgrade request pending, Qantas just sent me an email to pre-select meals in PE for the flight, hopefully that's not a bad sign)

Currently there are only 8 seats left in J.
The upgrade fairy tells me if you are already in the queue your chances are good but if anyone else books in J or requests an upgrade it will depend on your status.
I am not sure whether your booked class affects upgrade priority or if it is just QFF status and date of request.
In any event the email about meals means nothing. The system will treat you according to the class of travel you booked unless and until the upgrade is processed.

Thanks both! Interesting that F looks pretty full, so I guess there won't be any last minute J to F upgrades that help free up J seats.

I made the upgrade request a few weeks ago (immediately after booking), so fingers crossed.
