Hi

EK have just offered an upgrade from Y to J for $245 for BNE-SIN one way. Anyone have a view whether this service/plane is worth the upgrade? I know if it was a QF SYD-SIN I wouldn't bother.

Seems like a good deal, is it a daytime flight?

Shame QF never offers this although J on SYD-SIN is pretty ordinary.

Wonder if EK would have made this upgrade offer if the flight was booked on QF ticket rather than EK directly.

Yes. And for that sort of price I would definitely take in on QF SYD-SIN and vice versa on the condition that I was not downgraded back to economy.

:D

At least if you were it would be easy to work out how much to refund!

Definitely a good deal though, nice to have a good seat to relax and try to sleep in leaving at 02:35 (or 00:35 if you adopt destination time!).

If EK were selling business seats at the Y fare plus $245, I would think it a bargain (even if only earning Y points & miles).

LOL. I am sure Qantas would find a way for me to owe them money in that situation after the downgrade.

Absolutely, without more than a second to think. $245 for the upgrade on any international flight over three hours is a good deal. I travelled J-class SYD-SIN on QF31 on the A380 and it was sensational. It cost a load more than a Y fare plus $245. As a middle of the night departure, it could be the A380 with EK and you will get some better sleep than in Y. Just do it!!

Yes go for it!

Not only is it a good price, you will also get lounge access if you don't already have it via status.

Done. Sounds like an overwhelming yes.

If only QF offers these upgrades, I'd consider booking them next time (same plane anyway).

But then they'd sell one too many upgrades and the person would then have to he downgraded and pay more because full economy is more expensive. And some on AFF wouldn't really call it a downgrade as you end up back in your original cabin and should be greatful you have had the privilige to he screwed by Qantas.

Let's not open the paid upgrade can of worms until we are sure customers won't be inconvenienced.
