Hi All

Was all set to fly to Broome next month on a Fokker. Just logged in and saw the plane has been changed to 737-800. I thought the Fokker was predominantly used. Might be hand for anyone looking to make a J booking. Only 2.5 hours flight and not the best J product but still a step up from Y.

I booked 3 reward seats and no upgrade available.

Cheers

Domestically speaking, award seats are upgradable provided there is availability, however it isn’t a cheap exercise points wise.

Just did a dummy booking for 3 seats on the same flight and Business seats are available but I can't upgrade on my booking? Probably not worth it but I'd like the option to see how many points it would cost. I ws happy with 12k each way that it cost to get there.

Use the award charts of point calculators if you want to know how many points are required for the upgrade.

Did you dummy book cash or points payment. If points show availability then ring QFF and they can upgrade you. If only paid seats are available then you have to wait until near departure date, usually about 24 hours before.
