I’m looking to shout my two elderly parents a flight to London/Europe anytime between May-August this year and would love to know if anyone has any sneaky tips or tricks on how to snag a business class upgrade from economy. At one point I read through the excellent post on this site about buying an economy round-the-world one-world ticket and upgrading to business via points. I’m not sure if this is possible anymore, but in any event, happy to just get a MNE-LHR route.
So, does anyone know what I can try? Have circa 290,000 Qantas points and I don’t care which airline I need to buy the economy fares from. Although is it the case that since I’m flying Qantas I must book through and with them.
Any tips or tricks are really appreciated, particularly as I know how tiresome these requests can be as I’m sure they get posted all the time. If another thread covers this, just send me to it.
