Travelling soon on BA friend and I are going LHR-PRG-LHR.

I am a Qantas OWE traveling on a OW Award in Business, My friend is in Y. Can I use my QF points to upgrade her to CE?

No, you can't upgrade a BA flight (or a QF codeshare) using points. Also, there is the issue, even if on a QF flight, that a friend doesn't fit into the extended family rules that QF dictates for upgrade sponsorship... Then again, we're all related to everyone else in some way aren't we? ;)

Aside from being able to sit together, J is so not worth it internally in Europe, it's just an economy row with a blocked middle seat.

You'd be better of downgrading to Y if you want to sit together, you wont notice any loss of legroom etc vs. flying in "J"

IIRC BA have gone back to the old-style seat adjustment (rather than blocked seat). You get a wider seat, and some better food. But certainly nothing to write home about.

Depends some planes have the variable middle seat, some just a seat blocked. I was an A320 of BA the other day and it was different on either side of the cabin.
