Free Upgrade

I would like to report here about a free Upgrade I got on QR to business on a DOH-LHR leg.

I booked a NBO-LHR about 4 hours before the flight was to depart, without checking I had a 17hr 25 layover. When I arrived at DOH i went to the sales desk in transfers to see if I could be moved to a earlier flight. I was told the next flight could be done for $500 and the one after that for $35 so I went with the $35 option. I paid the $35 but the gentleman actually got me into the next flight the one that would of cost $500! So already happy I walked to the gate and checked in, my name and another gentlemanís name who was a QR gold was called back to the gate with new boarding passes and the grey strip along the top side of the ticket.!!!

I have no status with QR but I am Silver with BA and I have done a lot of QR flights posting to my BA card. This has been my first free upgrade and what a upgrade it was. A380 back to Heathrow with the bar

Thanks QR
