I have a slightly strange query re family upgrades and wanted to throw it out to the experts with the hope someone out there may have the answer..
For an upcoming trip to Bali flying Qantas metal I have requested an upgrade from economy to business for myself, the wife and my son. I am Platinum. There are 7 available seats and 13 requests to upgrade in the system. Flight is 3 weeks away.
The issue I have is my wife and I are booked under a separate booking with my son (under 2) booked on his own ticket but linked to our booking. If you're wondering why he is booked separately it's because the original booking was 2 adults plus 1 infant. However i ended up biting the bullet and booking my son his own seat (because he's now too big for the lap) and he wound up with a separate ticket in the process.
I can request an upgrade for all of us yet am concerned my son will not be considered Platinum priority because he's on a separate ticket.
Can anyone confirm how this will work in terms of my sons priority for the upgrade?
