If a Platinum FF requests a U class seat, and has this confirmed, and then cancels - does it return to U inventory, or disappear all together (back into J and D)?

(This is certainly a question for our most frequent, frequent flyers)

This really can only be answered by our friends in Qantas "Yield Management"; that wonderful department of statistical revenue maximization.

However, given that a seat request was necessary in the first place, it is highly unlikely that it would be returned to U class. That does not imply it won't happen, rather that generally, it won't.

You never really know; I recently monitered a flight's fare bucket availability while booking an award seat in WHY. Once completed, not only did T reduce by one, so did the N, O, Q & X fare buckets. Other times it's been just T & X.

I know of one case of this occuring and the seat popped up in J rather than U.
