I have booked a QFF itinerary SYD-LHR in PE. The second leg is with Cathay. Is there anyway I can upgrade to Business on this leg? I am very happy to pay cash but was told this afternoon I can’t upgrade for cash bc the flight was made on points, and Cathay won’t speak to me about it bc it’s a Q booking, even though a CP flight. I find it surprising that ( assuming availability), both airlines knock back cold hard cash.
Any advice and lessons much appreciated!!!
