I'm about to book a SYD-LAX in Economy Flex, however I'm a bit confused about the upgrades.

The fare rule on the booking page AUUSFF2JQI says:
"For the purposes of redeeming Qantas Points for a Flight Upgrade Award, this fare is classed as Economy."


According to the new table however: "~~~ For international flights: a) Economy includes classes G, K, L, M, S and V; and b) Flexible Economy includes classes B, H and Y." and this particular Economy Flex fare that I'm looking at books into class H.


Whereas the upgrade calculator says Y is economy and nothing is flex...


So the question is, has anyone tried this post simplification day, and do you get charged 18k to upgrade Y->PE, or do you get charged 45k? :shock:

Looks like the web site has not kept up with thefairer and simpler changes ⚡ .

Flex economy? Have toy comped the cost difference of purchasing PE outright?

Hi GalaxyNexus, Yes this had me confused last week when I booked a Flex Economy on QF11 for tomorrow which booked into H.
You will be pleased to hear that the upgrade calculator is incorrect, it looks like Y, H & B can be upgraded for the lower points cost.
My upgrade to J came through at T-60 for 45,000 points on a H class fare. This is the beauty of WP for me, a good chance of a J seat for an economy flex fare plus 45k points
