Hi there trusted experts,I'm looking to book two tickets on Qantas - classic reward tickets Mel-Per, business class. As in, two paxtravelling together. For the day I wish to travel, the QF site shows ONE reward seat available on my preferred flight, and two on a different (non-preferred) flight. My question is whether there really is only one seat available or if the QF system only makes one seat available per booking query on certain (presumably more desirable) flights. [I'm only Bronze but I also checked using a Platinum member login, and no difference.]To the point; is it possible/likely I could make two separate bookings of one ticket each on that preferred flight, or is there definitely only one seat available? I know Business is only 28 seats and QF is stingy on classic rewards. As implied above, I can use different accounts if that would help.I don't want to make the first booking and then try to book again and find no availability, since then I'd probably want to cancel the first booking, at a cost of 6,000 points.Many thanks for any advice, opinions, or truth-bombs.

Have you even bothered to pick up the phone and call Qantas? The awards phone staff are very friendly and helpful and will be able to quickly tell you the answer.

Henrus: The poster is asking a legitimate and reasonable question. While the bulk of your answer is helpful, the attitude at the beginnning is unnecessary.

In my experience more
often than not as long as your not traveling at a peak time of day you will get
an upgrade if requested. If there is only one classic seat showing atm that's
all that's available if two were it would show two.

You'll find the wait time when you call depends on status, so if you have a family member that is P and can book for you on their points it will be easier. You should also check the aircraft to try to ensure that you are getting an A330 and not a 737 and be aware that QF can change the aircraft type at any time.
