Hi Hive


Not sure if this has happened to anyone else. I used to be able to select the W class cabin seats while flying domestically between PER/MEL on QF9/10 on a Y ticket. On my upcoming trip I am no longer able to do this however. Does anyone know if Qantas has changed its seating selection rule etc?

At the risk of asking obvious questions, what is your QFF status and how long more until the flight?

Sorry, platinum and the flight is early November.

I’m WP flying QF9 domestically in November and there’s certainly no provisions to select PE. In fact it’s allowing me to upgrade to PE for 10k FF points!

Must have been a change in selection rules then..... was able to select PE seats 3 weeks ago on QF10


10k points for upgrade? Hmmmm....

You can upgrade now, no longer able to simply select it.

Hi Whopper: that's interesting, at what point in the booking stage are you being prompted for that upgrade?

Hey David,


No prompt sorry, it’s just the standard reward upgrade as per domestic business

QF 787 premium economy is selectable by plats on domestic routes where it is not for sale. QF 9 &10 even between PER-MEL-PER is technically part of a international flight and part of a saleable cabin for MEL-LHR-MEL.

That’s my understanding too but it wasn’t selectable last night when I booked my flight. It seems like it’s become an upgradable option only and no longer for selection.


The upgrade option has come up like a business upgrade too on the upgrade page for me.


Thanks for nothing, Qantas....
