International upgrades cannot be guaranteed or confirmed. You have to join the waitlist and the waitlist is cleared on the day of travel, starting with the CL members, then Platinum, then Gold, then Silver then the rest. Within each category the priority is based on when you joined the waitlist.Maca44 said:...d people on this forum will no doubt advise you of your chances of an upgrade and whether an upgrade can be guaranteed, as I may have gone about it the wrong way.
klt599 said:so what flight should i take on those dates to:
a)get the best price
b)be guaranteed an upgrade?
My price was for QF107 SYD-LAX and QF12 LAX-SYD, but the same price was available for the other non-dtop flights on those dates (eg QF11/QF108 etc).Lindsay Wilson said:Just which flights he checked (because there are multiple flights)....only NM can tell you.
I do not believe this applies to upgrades under the new waitlist scheme since they no longer come from U inventory.Lindsay Wilson said:Is the blackout on award seats fully purchased with points or UC's; or upgrading using points Y to J??
