Does anyone know what the minimum requirements are to upgrade QF booked economy flights on Emirates?
I’ve tried to upgrade Emirates flights a couple of times, both failures.
It wasn’t until after the booking that I found out that the QF “sale” fare is probably the issue.
The responses that I have received from customer service have been a bit vague and confusing.
So can anyone please advise me - are there any QF booked Emirates flights that are eligible for upgrades to business?
Either by points, or points+pay ?
If I choose a “saver” instead of “sale”, can I then use QF FF points to upgrade?
What if I buy “flex”?
Or is the issue that Emirates just don’t allow upgrades?
What if you are QF Gold - does that allow you to upgrade?
Do Emirates accept Skywards miles to upgrade QF bookings on Emirates flights?
I currently only use the QF FF program, but I am wondering if it time to swap.
I most frequently travel domestically, and to Portugal.
My partner and I prefer to fly Emirates to Portugal, because of their direct service.
My partner flies Qantas domestically for work, so it makes sense to focus on QF FF.
I generally don’t fly full fare business for work, unless it is for short haul, as I can’t justify the price. But I like to upgrade.
QF Classic business rewards for flights to Europe in summer on Emirates are just too hard to get.
I’d like to keep flying Emirates through the QF FF program, but the upgrade rules are confusing and frustrating me!
