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.
yeah we are not sure either however platinum booked and travelling on flight so hopefully he’s closer to top of list in upgrade requests?

My upgrade came through this morning - thanks everyone!

Success for QF11 SYD-LAX on 6/08/2019, PE to Business, SMS at about T-27 hours.

Edit: Concerning though my points balance has been decreased by about 66,000 points when it should be 49,500 points, and the upgrade transaction does not appear on the activity statement.

Here you are - QF1 daily from Sydney between 2nd and 9th of Nov... there's even a few award seat options if you're quick ('U' for J... Z for Y+), and that's much safer than gambling on the upgrade lotto.

Hi all,

I know it's still a while, but would like to ask for your help with loadings on QF36 SIN-MEL on 26/09, just hoping to see if any chances for an upgrade to PE or J.

Thanks :)

Too far out to be meaningful but does seem a bit on the full side

I can't see any award availability on the Qantas site. I'm Gold so maybe that's the reason?

Good afternoon all,
Second week here and enjoying all the knowledge being passed around.

I have a question (7 days before flight)... 2 actually....

1. Looking to know how seats are looking for possible upgrade Premium Eco or Business

QF 35 MEL>SIN
AUG 20
3 pax (2 ad, 1 ch +1 inf)
X class award booking
Platinum member

Currently in 32ABC

2. I know what we have is good, so do you think it’s worth upgrading or upgrading if possible with an infant?

Cheers
NikJoe

Looks reasonable with some good F availability that could open up some more J seats

It's not your status - they just never last long! 'U' need to act faster! The only one of those above that is still available is a single seat on the Thursday flight - I tested this using a Silver QFF account and it's there for one to acquire. There's 2 x F seats as well (P class), if someone wants a pair in the nose:
