PLEASE INCLUDE DATE, FLIGHT NUMBER, ORIGIN & DESTINATION IN ALL REQUESTS
>>>> ADDED BY ADMIN (6 Sept 2010) <<<<



Background to this thread
We have noticed an increase in the posting of questions about seat availability on specific flights. These are all valid questions and we all appreciate the efforts our members go to to provide answers.

The only drawback is that our forums can become "cluttered" with specific questions about availability on specific flights. This tends to reduce the overall usability of our site.
We have therefore created this new consolidated thread where you can ask questions about seat availability on specific flights. Hopefully, this will reduce clutter and improve useability.

Guidelines for posting in this thread
Please post questions about availability of specific flights or upgrade probability in this new consolidated thread. Be sure to include the airline, flight number, date, origin and destination and any other relevant detail.

When answering questions, please include the original question. This will assist in readability and management of the thread.

Thanks!



For Questions about Aircraft Configuration and Seat Availability, please use this thread:​



See this thread for hints on how to read loadings:


If looking for, say Qantas points upgrades, look for A class for First, mid to high D or any I class for Business and any R for Premium Economy.

Look for the most expensive category of the cabin YOU are currently booked in as being sold out e.g. J0 to first, W0 to Business & Y0 to PE for increased op-up chances. Also, look for availability on the discount premium buckets (A, P, I, D, U, T & Z inventories).

Conversely, look for high numbers in the discount economy buckets (N, O, Q, E & X inventories) for reduced op-up chances.

Seat maps can be a VERY rough guide but note that just because a seat is not showing as allocated does not mean that seat hasn't been sold. Not everyone pre-selects seats.

Original thread title: update on QF93 on 12 sept

Appreciate it if someone could check EP for loadings.

Your guess for likelihood of a Y Flex -> J upgrade as a WP? Alternatively, likelihood of courtesy blocks / shadows if I move from a Y window seat to the middle block hoping to get a row of four to myself and a "poor man's business" out of it?

Always a lottery. Have you requested an upgrade already? If so, you can probably wait to last minute to see if a row of 4 available. But if you haven't yet requested an upgrade you are likely to be at the end of the queue for that, and less likely to snag one.
 
Yes, the upgrade request went in as soon as the ticket was issued in March. J request with the gate upgrade switched on.

But looking at the seating in J already now, it smells like a large group (?) and that would probably lower the chances of an upgrade. The plan B is to see if I can get a middle row for some sleep.
 
Would appreciate any insight into QF44 DPS-SYD this Thursday 20/6 please?

We are both in J, seat selection unavailable though at least at T80 this afternoon Mr Flyfrequently was allocated a seat. I'm 5E and he is 7A.
Hoping to either sit together or at least behind in window seats.
(Looked like 2 seats were left for sale this morning.)
Guessing to do online checkin then get to airport early? Thanks.

Good luck! 👍
Online check in opened last night but there was an "Oops ..." message.

Able to check in just now and at least we have boarding passes though unable to change seats.
Will see what we can do at the airport tonight. There was one seat left for sale last night and appears none this morning @DejaBrew

Would appreciate some feedback on the lounge @Flyfrequently - I’ll keep an eye on your TR.
 
Could I please trouble for an updated loading of QF1, SYD - SIN coming Wednesday, 3 July? Thanks!
