Qantas points upgrade requests - when are we notified of the status?

Hi, we are bronze QFF and are flying to LAX in about 8 weeks. I have requested upgrade to Premium Economy (140000 points). Will I usually not hear anything until 24hrs out?

Correct, expect silence until close to departure. You might hear earlier, particularly if loads are light and there’s lots of upgrade space, but don’t expect anything.

Hmmm, first is empty, business almost empty, premium almost full, economy only less than half full. Surely my chances are good!

you only get told 24 hours out. and upgrades are only handed out in order of frequent flyer status.
