I’m looking to purchase a Flex Fare internationally and use points to request an upgrade. I’m currently a Qantas Bronze FF member however my partner is a Gold member. If she was to buy the flight in my name and request an upgrade using her points (which I can transfer to her name) does this increase my chances of getting an upgrade as the request is from a Gold member? Does it matter whether or not she is flying with me or do they only look at the status of the person who has booked and used their points?
Any assistance you could give would be great.
