I wonder if upgrade requests are always guaranteed for P1s?

Nothing is guaranteed. My boss is P1 and has often missed out on upgrades to business on SYD<->LHR. That being said his success rate on other upgrades is quite good.

People used to fly on QF9 MEL-DXB-LHR for the higher upgrade chance and the evening departure out of MEL suited some of them better too.

P1 here. I get them a lot more than I used to, but certainly not guaranteed. Often I'm trying for an upgrade from business to first on the Singapore leg. I'd say the move from platinum to P1 went up from a 1-in-4 success rate to 3-in-4.
