Thanks pjm99au. I was on QF1 and 2 in june this year, did not get upgrade as QF WP for both legs. this is a busy and profitable route for QF.
It may be 'busy' but in the past the CEO has suggested that the LHR routes were unprofitable. With international departures and arrivals from/to Oz starting to decline (due to the drop in the A$, and insufficient 'other origin' replacement passengers), even if not so now, that may again become the case.

That's hardly 'weird', even if others suggest QF7 is routinely held if there's late running ex PER. A spare pair of (for males) socks and jocks, plus a polo or other shirt, in one's carryon is sound practice, although you sound like you want two of each. They don' weigh much.
I will take this advice as well and pack a change of clothes in my carry on in case I miss my onwards flight to Nouméa this week.
I only have 1 hour 20 minutes in transit in SYD and I don't have much confidence AirCalin will hold their flight if mine is delayed!

Also the upgrade fairy has just come online after a powder break and sadly informs me there may be a lot of people already wishing for an upgrade on that flight.

Hi All
Looking for some advice on best upgrade potential for return flight from Sydney to Seoul.
I am WP.
Out Mon 18th Nov and return Thurs 21st Nov
Just going to do the direct one outbound (QF 367 code share Asiana at $613) unless anyone can suggest a cheaper alternative. I have all day to get there, but would like to arrive before 11PM.
On the return I am looking at a flex to try to get an upgrade with points.
2 options I see.
Seoul to Tokyo Narita and then from Heneda to Sydney 5 hrs layover. How long from Narita to Haneda and cost?
This is a 747-400 so should have more upgrade potential, but being a 400 are they going to be old seats.

Alternate is Seoul to Shanhai PuDong (5 hr layover so what is the lounge like) and then to Sydney on QF130. This is an A330 so less business seats but potentially newer and less hassle.
Both of above are around the $1030
All other alternatives given on Q site are more expensive.

Any advice / alternatives.
Many Thanks
XD

Hi All

A little over 72 hours out from flying back AUS from USA. Just wondering there was still availability for x4 J upgrades QF485 26th Sep MEL-PER.

pjm99au kindly searched and informed me there were 9 last week. Hoping there is still a chance.

Thanks
