Vancouver to Adelaide upgrading with Avios
 
Looking to fly Vancouver to Adelaide return premium economy and upgrade to business using Avios.

My questions are:

1. which airline from Oneworld is the best

2, how many Avios do I need and is there a location I can find this information

3. how do I go about booking this

Much appreciated

You can only upgrade with avios on BA flights, or eligible AA flights (AA PE-->J may not be eligible)

From Vancouver to Adelaide Oneworld choices are
  • CX YVR-HKG-ADL
  • QF YVR-SYD-ADL (YVR is seasonable)
  • AA/QF YVR-LAX-SYD-ADL
  • QF from/to various USA & Au airports

Business class awards Canada/US<----> Australia are very hard to get
Upgrades to Business class Canada/US<----> Australia on AA/QF are very hard to get
