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?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.
