Tips for Classic Upgrade Rewards
Make sure your e-ticket has been issued
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.
Travelling on a Points Plus Pay - Flights?
Classic Upgrade Rewards may also be requested on eligible Qantas Points Plus Pay - Flights. Conditions apply.
Missed your chance to request an upgrade on a domestic flight?
You can use your Qantas Points to request a Domestic On Departure Upgrade Reward from three hours before your flight departs, after checking in.
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:
|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.
Add your domestic flight to 'Your Trips' in the Qantas App. You'll need your booking reference and last name.
Simply check-in to your flight from 24 hours before departure.
If available, you'll be given the option to 'Request Upgrade' in the Qantas App from three hours before departure. If successful, your upgrade will be confirmed on the spot. Conditions apply.
