Virgin Australia from Brisbane only operates the A330's to Nadi during the school holidays (the final flight will be the 21st of January, and then the 24th of June for a few weeks).

Can the upgrades be applied if on an elevate fare or does it have to be a fully flexible fare?

If you're looking ex BNE as you live there, and are considering going to AKL, don't forget looking for flights out of OOL. You're going to find it hard to use them on the A333s out of BNE, I'm pretty sure VA have all but stopped them, even to PER.

I think what other posters have said is correct, there is no guarantee on any route ex-BNE of getting on board an A330, save possibly for the occasional flight to PER. The situation is hardly any better ex-SYD or ex-MEL, save for certain flights to PER.
