Points Upgrades Post July 1

Not open for further replies.


Feb 22, 2011
I had a quick search to see if this has been asked before but didn't find anything; correct me if I'm wrong.

I'm wondering if anyone knows what the deal is with QF points upgrades for flights operated after July 1st?

As we know the fare bucket categories will be changing, but the upgrade categories have not (yet).
I'm assuming the buckets considered "Discount Economy" for the purposes of upgrades will stay the same, even though they're in different categories for points and status earn, because the (international) upgrades page specifies the buckets.
# For international flights: a) Discount Economy includes classes B, G, H, K, L, M, S and V; and b) Economy includes class Y.
Does anyone have further info or experience as to how upgrade requests are costing at the moment for flights after July 1?

I don't believe the fare buckets are changing, just the FF zones.
