Just wondering if someone with the software could let me know of my chances of getting on it being waitlisted.
littl_flier said:I presume you are talking about paying for a seat. If you are travelling or prepared to travel on full Y or J class fares, then you can waitlist. You may also be able to do this on lower fares although I don't think so when the flight is full. As for success, as a Gold you have a better chance than a Bronze but it will require a no show of a flexi to change a flight- this is quite high with QF factoring in a 5 - 10 % no show or change. One would wonder though with only one flight per day on QF metal if this would be the case.
Someone who has knowledge of whether the flight is overbooked might be able to tell you some more info. I suggest giving QF a call or getting your TA to sort this out.
justinbrett said:Sorry - it's going to be a government paid flight in full Y (not entilted to J unfortunately).
I have done this once before on silver, and it came through - so hopefuly will happen again.
I was more thinking (I seem to remember from an old post I read somewhere) that someone within QF could post that it was already oversold by two already. A mate has access to that info but I can't really ask him. All CSM's (not sure about FA's) have access to loadings for flights.Mal said:If flight is sold out, then no-one here *should* be able to give you more information than what you have at the moment - ie, that the plane is full.
DTM1 said:It isn't necessarily the case that Gold will have the first priority, as the WP guarantee only applies if you book before midday the day before the flight. If a WP gets waitlisted after midday, then they may come ahead of any Gold. I guess it depends on when they confirm the waitlisted people.
Does anyone know when that happens ?
