    There are four types of Jetstar domestic flights (as far as I am aware) -
    • JQ domestic (operated by the Australian A320 Jetstar fleet)
    • JQa CNS-DRW (operated by JetstarAsia A320s)
    • Domestic codeshare services (operated by QF, marketed by JQ)
    • JQi domestic legs of international flights (operated by A330s)
    In regards to the final flight type (JQi, international flight/domestic segment MEL-SYD) - as it is operated by an A330, Star Class is present, and people sit in there. I am unable to answer if upgrades are available at check-in... However, I would warn that this segment is a “pay on board” snack service for economy passengers. On international flights, when JQi economy passengers get this service, Star Class passengers get a “take your pick” from the snack basket service.

    So, if upgrades are available, and the segment is only a “take your pick” from the snack basket service - I personally do not think you would be getting very good value for money! (As for status credits, etc... your call on upgrade value MEL-SYD.)

    While this segment may be operated by an A330, I suspect the passengers sitting there would mostly be people on the international segment as well. I don't think you can buy starclass if you are flying purely domestic (which is quite a separate thing to whether you can end up sitting there)

    No, I agree, you can't buy a ticket for it… However, I don't know about upgrading.

    If JQi has an empty Star Class seat, and someone is prepared to pay a few hundred for it (as an upgrade), I personally don't think whether they are a continuing passenger or just getting off domestically should enter into the equation?!

    Has anyone been able to obtain a paid ODU for a JQ domestic leg (of international service)?
