Is it normal for QF to be charging an 100NZD change fee when paying the difference to change from Y to J on the same flight? first time I've tried it on the QF(APP), but on other airlines its normally just the fare difference if staying on the same flight.

If there is a change fee applicable, then yes, it is normal to be charged the change fee

Thanks was just checking - as some airlines do waive it if you stay on the same flight when moving from Y to J.

policy yes... but in my mind you could possibly ask for exemption if you are upselling to a really full fare J which nobody in theit right minds would buy.... but i supppse thats not what you are doing.

I would suspect that this would be as successful as asking for a free upgrade

not many airlines I know of have a policy to waive fees, but have seen a fair number of fares that have a rule that gives an exception to change fee for upgrade to a higher cabin; if the fare gas that condition, then would expect there to be no change fee

It's free if you do it same day although I have done this the next day early morning once and not been charged. But yeah, otherwise expect a fee with Qantas. That was via phone call.

Same day wil come under the policy that Qantas has to fix mistakes ( https://www.qantas.com/au/en/manage-...o-mistake.html ) - wromg cabin is a situation that is allowed to be fixed free of charge
