Qantas P1 interested to know experience in getting points UG from BC to F using points. I do not have to go to UK often, have to go to Jul 16, solo traveler, start Jul AU school H'days, return start Jul UK school H'days. Flight's are QF 1 and 2.

As P1 I would say pretty high, and over holiday periods can be less paid business travel.

I would suggest:

1. P1 Status - in your favour (majorly)

2. 'Solo' traveller - definitely in your favour

3. Relatively 'short' upgrade window - not really favourable. It is always lamented on this and most other sites that First Class Upgrades seem to be snapped up 12 months in advance of travel.

4. School holidays? While there may not be a lot of 'paid' First / Business demand, there will certainly be a LOT of UPGRADE demand from business people wishing to take their family on holidays. July is also the 'summer' peak to Europe. Not so advantageous.

5. I would suggest checking out potential available First upgrade possibilites / loads - and then ringing your P1 QFF contact tel nbr and having a chat with consultant. Over the years, I have found them to be amenable to accommodate standard P, so I would imagine that as a P1, you would certainly have the best chance of accessing available QF largesse. Denying your absolute top-tier would not be a 'good' look / experience - but on some occassions, may be unavoidable. If there are no available upgrade seats, sometimes they are able to bounce an unsold revenue seat into the UPG bucket, provided one is available.

Good luck with your trip.
