Will a classic rewards upgrade be more successful for a gold FF compared with bronze?

I'm gold, my missus bronze but she has enough FF points to put in for upgrades to PE for a Xmas trip to London from Perth for both of us. Would Qantas favour a gold FF bidding over a bronze, or is it a fair game?

Gold has higher chance. Do a family transfer of points to you and use your account to request the upgrade (assuming you are on the same booking).


Christmas is a busy period with high loads so getting upgrades may be very difficult especially for two people (solo upgrades are prioritised and only solo travellers can request that their upgrade request be considered as late as at the gate).

Yes gold prioritised from silver or bronze. Another thing you can do is click on request upgrade for family member and you can do it. She can transfer you the points.

Correct me if I’m wrong but this is technically not correct.

Traveller status only applies on the same booking and if on the same booking all travellers would be upgraded if applying as you can’t apply for an individual upgrade on a multi pax booking.

Eg if a Plat tried to upgrade a family member on a booking they were not flying on themselves Using the upgrade family member the person travelling status is assessed for upgrade, exception is plat one where their status is applied regardless of if they are traveling on the booking or not
