I wouldnt count on it / imagine youd probably be wasting your time currently - two passengers on my MEL-DOH flight this week in F; I upgraded in advance in December but had to fight to get access and wait whilst they called the ticketing office for them to check exactly how / when I upgraded the ticket; the other gentleman who upgraded a few days before the flight also turned up and tried to get access whilst I was waiting and was turned away, as was another passenger as I was just getting to the desk. I think theyre pretty serious about this with Al Safwa and havent heard any reports yet of the occasionally leniency they have shown with Al Mourjan.

I just got an upgrade offer DOH to CDG for Friday morning Y (V class) to J for AUD 729. Went with it - getting off the plane and going straight to an event. I actually thought I had more chance SYD-DOH as the DOH-CDG was only showing 8 rev seats available (now 3).

Sorry for being ignorant. May I know where can I find the Cash Upgrade desk in the airport? And which part of the QR app could I find the upgrade offers? Thanks!

Currently booked in Y on an L fare. Depart in 5 days. Hoping for an offer on HKG-DOH segment. ExpertFlyer showing J9 C9 D9, so there certainly seems to be availability. I am surprised an offer has not been sent out yet, but am wondering if it makes a difference if a QR mileage number is attached to the reservation. I currently have my CX number in. Does this impact my offer chances?

Don't think so - I have a QF number in mine.

Not necessarily. If there statistics/experience would suggest that they have a lot of last minute revenue bookings on a certain route they might not free up reward space earlier than airport check in. This holds true even more if they are confident to sell left seats at the airport.
