1. Have any of you been upgraded to first from business (operational upgrade) say SYD-DFW or DFW-SYD?

1. I've only upgraded using points, but op-ups could happen

I did Qantas business class on Perth to Sydney to LAX return 4 x times per year for 6 years and Perth to Sydney to Dallas 4 x per year for 4 years. I never got a single operations upgrade on those 80 USA flights with Qantas. It is worth using points to upgrade to First on the Sydney to Dallas or Sydney to LAX legs IMHO as you get great Rockpool dining menu on an afternoon flight from Australia. It is not worth upgrade on the way back as the flights leave the USA around midnight so sleep is in order rather than entertaining and too much drinking. I've never understood why Qantas is so stingy with the 'rewards' it offers its most frequent flyers. Which is why I now fly to the USA with Air NZ!
