I was very happy to get a text this morning that I was being granted an upgrade to business on QF1 tomorrow. This is the first time in ages that this has happened, so I literally did a happy dance to the coffee machine.
I logged in to see if a seat had been assigned, and it had. Seat Guru showed it as amber, and as it happened, there was a 'better' seat on offer, so I nabbed it.
My question is, will my seat change stick? I am platinum with a preference for a window seat on file, but they didn't automatically assign me the window seat that I nabbed. Will their original upgrade seat overrule my change? Or can I relax at least a little?
First world problem, I know...

If you logged in and changed the seat, that will be your allocated seat. Everything is subject to change, but you should be fine:)

As the others have said, I have changed seats after being upgraded and I have always had my chosen seat.

One of the first things I do after getting an upgrade is to login and to see what seat I’ve been assigned and possibly move to a free better seat. Different people have different tastes.

You’ll be fine. I’ve never had a seat choice reversed after an upgrade.
