Just booked a BNE/MEL/BNE trip and just gone into the website to see what availabilty for J upgrades.

I'm bemused by the screen:

Friday 10 Feb 06 BNE to MEL Upgrade to: Business Points: 12,000
Wednesday 15 Feb 06 MEL to BNE Upgrade to: Business Points: 7,500


Why is there the difference?? Whilst I know there's a 20% discount currently for award seats, I didn't think it relates to Y > U upgrades...

Of course, I'll happily accept...more points remain in my pocket.

Of course, once I thought about it for a minute, I just answered my own question...one way is S class, the other K class :roll: . Now who's padding their post count :shock: .

I think I'll just hide in the corner and hope nobody reads this thread :oops: ...

Too late :p
Yep. Lindsay "post count padder" Wilson is at it again. Let's hope flyer4703 doesn't see this thread after what you just said. :D

Not if we keep bumping the thread to the top of the table :D .

Now, which treasurer was it that said the state of the domestic economy should not be discounted?

Hmmm. Let's keep this thread at the top of the pile for a while longer in case some people have not read it yet. :wink:

An interesting thread.......guess it's better to be accused of being a thread padder by an expert than just anyone :D :D

Expert....me :shock: No, flyer4703, I think you have me confused with Dave Noble or NM. Believe me when I say that I am a mere amateur when it comes to those two (knowing them as well as I do).

I knew as soon as I'd worked out the answer to my own questions, that this topic would head south :cry: ...but I have to take whatever I got dished out from the regulars here, it'll build character :?

Is that the best that all of you have got?? Hell, I had better thrown at me in my school years...

Um, ok, well then I'll give it a shot :oops: .

Never mind we all have an off day. For you it seems to be rarer than myself.

C'mon guys; 'tis over three hours since the last bump :p . Can't let Lindsay rest on his padding. :D

BTW; he had me confused initially as well; I don't believe I have travelled on a whY Flexi Fare in the last 3 years :!: That put it a bit out of my experience.

Well, see, the thread's not been a total waste. I didn't know that there were different upgrade points requirements for different fare levels.

So, your post-count is padded, and I've learnt something. Win-win as far as I'm concerned!

Of course not. That would just be rude.

Well, I'm :D to see some good has come from my inept posting :roll: ... (I'd have to classify this as member education now :wink:).

Yes, I'm fallible. Thanks for the laughs everybody (interesting to see all those senior members posting here :wink:)
