I just wanted to gain your thoughts on the chance of a Qantas upgrade from Dallas to Sydney on a Saturday in May 2015?
I'm a bronze frequent flyer. Have any other bronze frequent fliers been upgraded on this route?
Fingers crossed for an upgrade on the world's longest flight (the upgrade will make the flight a bit more bearable!)

The thing is upgrades are done in priority of FF status. As a bronze FF, you are at the bottom of the pile for upgrades. The best option would be to request the upgrade and request the on departure/last minute upgrade in case of no shows.

I would be preparing myself to travel in the class you paid for... I would think Saturday is a busy day and the Dallas - Syd flight has seat restrictions so less seats available anyway. Are you in economy or premium economy?
I hope you get lucky!

Just try it out, you can only gain by putting it in. Obviously be mindful that it isn't guranteed, but I think you will be fine. I was a bronze and got upgraded from Economy to Business on a full 767 from Sydney to Honolulu on the first day of school holidays about 6 months ago. I got it 24 hours before aswell.
