Hmmm - I just booked (domestic on a Sunday - I'm platinum on qantas) and it didn't charge me to pick an exit row seat - very welcome but how's other's experiences? Are you being charged?

Well my upgrade came through - happy flight! - about 26 hours before departure. This leaves me with an classic rewards upgrade success rate around 20 to 25% (WP). I’m curious what others find with this (note this is the first time I’d bothered to check expert flyer for the load in bus...
