    I am only Silver status and a non business flyer. I am flying QF9 tomorrow on a red e deal fare. I have enough points to upgrade either leg up to business. What are my chances? Should I ask at checkin or call? Thanks

    ETA. Aaah I think my chances are slim from Mel to Dubai at keast

    If your fare is ineligible, your chances are none.

    Just following on from this post, there were several occasions in 2013 where Qantas relaxed the rules around the deep discount Y tickets and upgrades were able to be requested. Have any members received emails from Qantas with this offer recently?

    Red e deal, on QF internationals, is a non upgrade(able) fare, isn't it?
    No matter if you have enough QFF points.
    Unless I am wrong, but OP, please do come back and tell us if asking for the upgrade worked or not.

    QF do special offers sometimes to allow those fares to be upgradeable.
