Good question... I'm also interested in the answer.

I have been in this situation a couple of years ago. I rang QF at the time and I was told they recognise my status at the time the upgrade is processed even if it was not the status when I requested the upgrade. Therefore there was no point in cancelling the request and making it again - something I was considering doing and I told them as such. However Qantas' rules may have changed since then. Best give Qantas a call to confirm.

NSunners is correct. This was the case for me few weeks back. It is at the time of upgrade, your status is looked at.

Which, theoretically should mean OP would move from the Gold queue to the back of the Platinum queue in terms of who gets allocated an available seat...
Thanks all for the contributions.
That is what was explained to me 12m ago when I upgraded a JFK-LAX leg. I rang Qantas and the helpful guy explained that I'd joined the back of the Platinum queue - I had one P1, and two Plat's in front of me.
Ok, cool, thank you for the follow up
