You will only get a seat with Qantas if there are still some available for FF's. In 10 years of membership of the Qantas FF program, I have only once been able to redeem anything from Qantas and that was an upgrade from economy to business, Hong Kong-Sydney.
What is your status because that will be a huge determining factor...
I've had quite a few operational upgrades (dom and int), and received most of my international upgrade requests. The key is to select days and flights when loads will be light e.g. I don't try to get an upgrade Y to J on SYD to HKG on a Sunday because Qantas overbooks, but have always managed to get one on a Tuesday or Wednesday.
