I'd recommend booking the flights outright (assuming you have enough for business) as it's guaranteed. In order to get an upgrade you have to buy a higher class ticket, so you may spend an extra $1k & get no upgrade. No you can't upgrade unless it's a Qantas plane.

As hard as it might be buy the class you want to travel and use points for a possible upgrade and then its win win! Never assume on the upgrade as disappointment hurts - and you can only use qantas points on qantas flights for upgrades
