I'm flight to London on Wednesday evening on EK metal with QF flight number (in Economy). I booked EK because I needed to leave in the evening. Booking was made with AmEx travel to use my $500 credit.
I now could leave a bit earlier. I'd love to switch to QF metal so I could request an upgrade. QF will not talk to me because it is an AmEx (i.e. travel agent) booking. All flights on the day are sold out in Economy so AmEx can not change my reservation.
It seems to me that it would be in Qantas' interests to switch me to Qantas metal if it were possible as I want to use points to upgrade. They are oversold in Economy but not Business. I have Platinum status. Do you think that the Pt FF helpdesk might sort me out?
