I’m sure there will be some knowledge/opinion on AusBT about this. I’m planning a trip to HKG and wanted to maximise my chances of a points upgrade to Business. Thoughts on what might be a better option:

I was upgraded on QF118 a few weeks ago as a gold member. At least half the cabin were upgrades or staff.

Also day of the week Saturday or Sunday may work better.
Sorry - it’ll be on a Tuesday night... and my wife and I are both Gold QFF
Tuesday may also work as it is a bit early in the week for business people coming home from work meetings etc

Maybe the QF Airbus380 if they fly on your day, might have more chances, as there are more seatings available for business and those who can, would have upgraded to First.
