    so what does one do with a single upgrade credit that's due to expire at the end of the month?

    *edit* i've just realised that this is the wrong place for this question, moderator, pls move it to the right location! thank you

    Use it to upgrade a single flight under 1200 miles, or just let it expire unused?

    Are they transferrable? Could this be used to do someone a good turn?

    i'd guess is possible to "spend" it on someone from the forum... however from a legal point of view, i believe i am breaking a rule or three here..

    anyone know how or whether qantas does police such gift notion?

    btw, i am all for building good karma.. =)

    To summarize the previous posts -

    You need to locate a 'relative' who is travelling somewhere on Qantas 'metal' with a Qantas flight number on a flight < 1200 miles before 31st May.

    They must NOT be booked in O, Q or N class.

    I managed to use my last remaining UC earlier this month. I thought I was going to be giving it an eligible family member, and was right - just that the eligible family member was me :D .

    Well done. I lost a few unable to use (either already in the highest cabin or flight too long needing more UCs than I had).

    I was expecting to give it to my cousin to use (yes, he is actually my cousin), but I had a last minute request to travel to SYD, so my UC was used one way and 5000 FFP the other way.

    When still a SG I unsuccessfully tried to use up my UC's on longhaul flights LAX-MEL and LHR-MEL, but must have been too many WP's in the upgrade queue ahead of me. Pity that I didn't still have some as a WP (darn expiry dates). Most of mine went on MEL-SYD and MEL-BNE upgrades.
