Tips for Classic Upgrade Rewards

You need to have an eligible paid and confirmed ticket on a Qantas flight with a Qantas (QF) flight number on your ticket.

Ensure you have enough points for the upgrade

Members must have enough points for the Classic Upgrade Reward at the time they request it and when the upgrade is confirmed. Top-up points and family transfers may assist in ensuring that enough points are available.

How Upgrade Reward requests are processed

Classic Upgrade Reward requests are prioritised based on several factors as determined by Qantas including your original booked cabin and your Qantas Frequent Flyer membership tier. Upgrade requests will be reviewed as follows:

Classic Upgrade Reward registrations
Membership tier Domestic Upgrades International Upgrades
Platinum One Within three days of the scheduled flight departure Within seven days of the scheduled flight departure
Platinum Within three days of the scheduled flight departure Within three days of the scheduled flight departure
Gold, Silver, Bronze Within 24 hours of the scheduled flight departure Within 24 hours of the scheduled flight departure

It may not be possible to confirm your international Classic Upgrade Reward according to the timetable above even if seats are available for sale in the upgrade cabin due to expected future commercial passenger demand.

If your upgrade is confirmed, it will be noted in 'Bookings' at qantas.com and in your flight details within the Qantas App. Where possible we’ll notify you with an SMS (conditions apply). You’ll also be informed when you check-in to your flight at the airport. Qantas Points will be deducted from your account when your upgrade is confirmed.

If you’re a Platinum One, Platinum, Gold, Qantas Club or Points Club Plus member, you can enjoy the exclusive ability to request a last-minute upgrade within three hours of departure.
