Thanks for the welcome guys,

Just wondering guys,

Do you have any experience traveling to JKT using QF ?

I will be traveling on 12 December 14, returning 7 January 15

12 December 14 - QF 41 Travel Class: Economy (S)

7 January 15 - QF 42 Travel Class: Economy (S)

I do have the option to upgrade to business class for 24000 points each way

I do have priority pass, any suggestion on lounges that I can access in Sydney or Jakarta

Any suggestion on this?

Thank you heaps

I am guessing you are going to Jakarta (CGK) on QF41/42.

International upgrades are a lottery, and do not get confirmed until much closer to the flight (i.e possibly as late as at the gate).
The flights I assume would be on 330's, so would I use 24k for an upgrade? It is really up to you.

I guess it depends on what you want to do with you 150k worth of points that you have stacked away.

Thank you Mannej

I am going to Jakarta (CGK) on QF41/42. You are correct

In regards of the seating arrangement, do you know where the best seat to choose?

At the moment using the flight stats, I found

J/9 C/9 D/9 I/9 U/3 Y/9 B/9 H/9 K/9 M/9 L/9 V/9 S/9 N/0 Q/0 O/0 G/0 X/0 E/0

I have no idea what it means

Thank you

In economy or business?

Also, are you on the A330-200 or A330-300?

This shows how many seats are for sale.

J to U are business. They have 9 or more J booking class business seats for sale. Of those 9 or more QF will "sell" 3 as awards (U) As a guess very few business seats are currently sold.

Y to E are economy. They have 9 or more Y booking class economy seats for sale. With 9 or more S booking class for sale they have not sold many. Y to G is sort of the price range. Y is full economy. S are cheapish seats. E super discount. X is economy award

Yes to a point. 3 people can book an award flight in U class or it can be used for upgrade ~24 hrs before flight. And QF yeild management may release more seats for upgrades in the ~24 hour before the flight, if they are not sold. Your chances will depend on how many others have requested upgrades and their QF status. 12 Dec is a long time to the flight. QF will sell more seats in the next 7 months. Have a look 1 or 2 weeks before.
