Apologies but I have asked this question somewhere in the past but its lost in my memory.
Has anyone had the experience where a WP successfully requests that a revenue seat be converted to a "u" to allow for an Australian domestic upgrade from a paid economy seat ?
I would like to sit next to my wife who has already been upgraded - don't ask me the whole story - but a large QF computer glitch occurred!
EF currently shows D8 I7 for that flight.
John,Are you sure that there are no U?
EF has a glitch where it does not show U under 'Flight Availability' (but it does show X).
You need to check for U under 'Awards & Upgrades'.

You can request seats for a family member from your account. You do not need to be flying.I wanted to request release of J seats for some friends to travel SYD-FCO. The platinum member does not need to be flying correct?
Friends, no. Family, yes.I wanted to request release of J seats for some friends to travel SYD-FCO. The platinum member does not need to be flying correct?
No. Classic reward seat release requests would be unsuccessful that close to a flight.On a side note, if I requested a points upgrade from a Y award and it goes through a few days before check in, can I just cancel it and request for that J seat to be booked as an award instead? Would save me some points. Thanks!
If you are Platinum requesting seats it’s I class that needs to be available.I have OWA flights back from Europe june and september this year.
Currently coming back via complicated connections via HND and HKG respectively .
I rang unsuccessfully friday to request freeing up of seats LHR - SIN or LHR-SYD to get to BNE. All options had 9 x "i" seats available and the agent tried unsuccessfully.
The agent told me that you need a "J" seat to be available for conversion to be on the cards .
Has anyone heard of this ?
I was under the impression that it was the "i" class seats that gave you the best chance - I accept there are many other variables as well .
