• Flying DXB to Madrid in First next April. Fingers crossed it's as classy as this.

  • Thought so, but worth an ask. Bit frustrating not to be able to use Q points to upgrade a flight with a QF number bought from Qantas on their website. Not much point buying codeshare flights, I guess - may as well go direct to Emirates website. 

  • I understand that I can use Qantas points to 'buy' an Emirates flight in any class (subject to availability) but I can't use QF points to upgrade a purchased ticket. What about codeshare flights?

  • Emirates Paid Upgrades

    Last month, I flew EK from SYD to DXB on Qantas points. On checking in, I asked about paying for an upgrade. I was told to ask when onboard. I did so, and was told the upgrade would cost US$2,200. I was happy to stay in Economy.

  • I'm flying DXB-Madrid next month in F, using QFF points. I have a seven hour layover in DXB from midnight after flying (in Business) from Sydney. Does anyone know if there are sleeping facilities in the DXB lounge (ideally with a wake-up call!)? Any suggestions on best way to spend that period?

  • I've used Qantas points to fly on Emirates from Syd-DXB (Business Class) and DXB-Madrid (First), and Rome-DXB-SYD (Business) next April/June. Does this qualify me for a transfer at either end?Any tips, or any good or bad seats to book/avoid?

  • I'm flying Emirates in Business Class from SYD to Madrid and Rome to SYD next year. Does Emirates provide limo transfers in Australia? Any seats to avoid in Business on the A380?
