I have a question about Qantas' policy when a Platinum requests a points upgrade for a family member.
Does Qantas treat that request as if it were for the Platinum themselves or only consider the status of the actual person travelling?
I've read that P1 requests have their family treated as though they themselves were travelling, but have read contradictory advice if it's Platinum or below.

Hi DVDA, we've edited your post to remove terms like "WP". We use clear English on this site so that anybody reading it knows what's being asked and said (although P1 is obvious enough in a frequent flyer question!). Cheers. :)

It is the Status member of the family member that is taken into consideration.
Of the travelling family member or the requesting family member?

My understanding is that the requesting member's QFF status is used when determining upgrade requests for family members, it's why I do upgrades for family members, otherwise I would not waste my time. Hope this helps

It is the travelling passengers status unless the requestor is P1 or CL.
