I am flying out to Singapore on Feb 3 on QF 035 (Melbourne to Singapore). I booked the flight through a third party (flightcentre) and they have provided me with a booking reference to log on to

Now its my wife's birthday on the Jan 31 and I thought I would surprise her by upgrading her to Business (my 2 year old son and I will remain in Economy), but I am unable to do this via the Qantas website as I think that this is an Emirates booking (even though I am flying Qantas). Is there a work around this or some alternative suggestions? Thanks in advance

It must be both booked with the QF flight number (i.e. QF marketed) and operated by QF for you to be able to upgrade using QANTAS points.

Also no upgrade requests if you booked the cheapest "sales" fare with QF. Only regular economy or flexi-economy fares are eligible to request for upgrade! And depending on your Qantas status, upgrades are confirmed from 24 hours - 7 days before your flight!
