But the upgrade fairy says you're likely to stay in PE.
However she also whispered that if you were able to change to QF55 at 20:35 your chances would dramatically improve.

Thanks...cant change flights, already have a tightish connection.
I have been offered a Bid Upgrade thing...trying to research how many $$ to offer or if it is even worth it.
I kinda remember a thread here but cant find it yet...

If you're already registered for a classic points upgrade from PE, then don't bother with Bid Now... The classics are completed before any Bid Now offers are processed, and so if you were going to get it, you would have got it already before this... or at least, this is how it was set-up to operate from the outset! Good luck, ether way!

Cheers,
Matt.

Flight is still a week away so fingers crossed. I am Gold now so that may help.
I have only got these bid upgrade things for DOM before where I wasn't interested so have not done one before.

OK finally found the old thread but it was mostly about domestic upgrades, and no posts for 6 months or so.
T&C of the offer I got still say Classic Upgrades done before Bid Now.
So I will just wait and see what the fairies decide.

With I9 on both flights, why the difference?

Getting such an offer can be indicative of a light load as well as light upgrade requests and generally means points upgrades are more likely to succeed.

Never interrogate a fairy.
However I am sure you can imagine that other variables are at play. Such as the number of upgrade requests received.

In theory.

Loads as per EF:
2 NOV 2019 QF1 SYD-SIN F9 A9 J9 C9 D9 I0 W3 R0 T0 Y9 B9 H9 K9 M9 L9 V0 S9 N9 Q9 O9 X9 E1
2 NOV 2019 QF1 SIN-LHR F7 A7 J9 C4 D0 I0 W4 R3 T0 Y9 B9 H9 K5 M3 L0 V0 S0 N0 Q0 O0 X0 E0

But these don't mean much on their own and I can't give you much more meaningful information unless I know what you are checking for.
The upgrade fairy suggests slight chance of upgrade to PE on both sectors, stiff competition for J SYD-SIN and a lot of disappointment likely SIN-LHR.
Good chance for F SYD-SIN but all chances taken for SIN-LHR.
But if you are already in the queue, it all depends on your status, the fare you have booked and paid for and the date when you requested the upgrade.
And of course there could be more bookings in the next two weeks - it's still a long way off!
Thanks

I got a Bid Now upgrade email yesterday. I'm not sure if that's a good sign or bad.

Son-in-law always pops up with information about waitlists, upgrade requests etc from the QF employee account. He is just organising a ride back from LHR for his Mum and carefully weighing up QF2 v QF10 across several days to see what gave the best chance of her grabbing a J seat.

Immigration at LAX still a shambles but despite being rejected by the auto gate got thru in twenty minutes as was among first off...plane was early we had to sit on Tarmac for 20 mins or so before they let us in.

Did you end up submitting a bid now request or was it just the points upgrade that got you and your friend to business?
