Has anyone tried getting a seat released on one of the "limited schedule" domestic government subsidized flights? I need to travel in the coming weeks and right now there is absolutely no reward availability at all on QF (can't imagine these flights are full - just a question if QF is allowing reward redemptions).

😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

WP requested 2 x U seats for QF26 HND-SYD in April 2021 - success!

Was showing I9 prior, unsurprisingly.

Does Qantas extend this benefit on Jetstar classic awards? Looking for SYD-BNK seat.

Have you considered QF on this route? Might be easier to request a seat.
I had no issues getting reward seats online for CNR-BNK; booked two weeks ago for mid to late Oct. Only 16,000 pts each, return - bargain. We picked the QF flight for the leg SYD-BNK so we didn't have to get luggage and recheck it. Dash 8 takes 1h20m, compared with 1h15m on JQ A320, so not much difference.

QF would ordinarily be preferable however the passenger is joining others who have already booked on JQ.

I've rung QF and they've advised that they cannot request classic seats on JQ for platinum FF.

Noob question here: can WP ask for domestic J or Y release too? I see most of this forum is about the more valuable international flights of course, but well...
