Hi, guys
I am looking for a return flight between Sydney and Singapore on 1st Sep and 10th of Sep. As it is an overnight flight to Sydney I want to book business class instead. I tried to book both economy tickets and there is no upgrade option on the confirmation page as there are still availability for business class. Does that mean I could only pay more for two one-way tickets?
I tried to search other destination and there are upgrade options to LA on confirmation page.
Thanks!!

Both QF2 and QF82 on 10SEP show some availability in Business. However QF2 is very limited (ie: no D or I inventory). QF82 looks better for J.

Thanks, but can I book mixed cabin tickets for a return flight? Two one-way tickets are more expensive.

I have never managed to achieve this with the exception of trans Tasman, recently booked business max with JQ from Singapore for this exact reason after returning from Europe on a reward flight. It will be interesting to see what it’s like, but cheaper than Qantas economy one way and can use the lounges. Also business class status credits / points.

FWIW, I could get BA to show a Y over, J back fare ($2897) using the '+CABIN 2' extension code on the return leg on ITA Matrix (fare basis is ONNT30S4 and RNNC30S4), but QF only offered J in both directions for $6.9k...

(J both ways on BA is $3955)

Yes - but not on the Qantas website. You need to make the booking through the call centre. Be sure to ask the agent to waive any call centre fees since you can't do it on the website yourself.

Edit: See this support page here -

Called qf today, Hobart team answered the call. They said it’s impossible to book a mixed cabin return flight. They offered two one way tickets instead or I have to use points to upgrade. I hope I could get upgraded with WP status. ☹️
