VA premium economy to USA - what is the fare type for AU domestic connections?

I’m thinking of booking a premium economy ticket to JFK with the intention of waitlisting for a J points upgrade on the Au to LAX leg. However, because I fly from Hobart I will have a domestic connection that doesn’t have premium economy seats. Does anyone know what fare code these domestic legs book into? When I’ve searched for flights, the VA website just states “economy” for that leg, but doesn’t say what kind of economy ticket.

It’d be great if it was freedom because then I could finally use my WP complimentary upgrades.
 
The Qantas Premier Platinum Card delivers up to 100k Qantas Points, 75 bonus Status Credits, complimentary lounge invitations and travel insurance. All this with a reduced first-year annual fee of $199.

Expedia and ITA Matrix both display the fare codes for each leg of a journey.

Looks like both 'Preimium' and 'Premium Saver' tickets book into the 'Y' fare class for domestic connections which translates to a Freedom ticket so you are in luck!
