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 registrations are prioritised based on several factors as determined by Qantas including your original booked cabin and your Qantas Frequent Flyer membership tier. Upgrade registrations 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 after you’ve registered, it will be noted in 'Your Bookings' at qantas.com, and where possible we’ll notify you with an SMS. 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.
