I not think so, because QR App show still 4 first
seats for sale on tomorrow QR833.

So yu should have very good chance to ugrade at airport tomorrow to first same the other 2 previous posters did in the last few days.

Since yu stll have 60 Qcredits you have enough for 2 seats and use them all but be at airport soon, not some other take the available seats before yu (there is an earlier QR flight at 20.25 so check in should be open at 17.25 also for your later flight)

Email upgrade offer vs cash upgrade at airport

Hi guys

Anyone who can share price difference between email upgrade offers and cash upgrade at the airport?

Received email upgrade offer today for JNB - DOH on Saturday for R6705 (around $565). Should I wait to upgrade at the airport or take the email offer? We are 3 travelling and I will upgrade myself with Qcredits but wondering if it will be cheaper to upgrade the other 2 at the airport?

Thanks

I agree way too expensive and no lounge access or extra points or miles

That is way overpriced. Granted offer is only five days before flight - but I have typically accepted upgrades on this segment at €150-€180.

You already have lounge access with status (Araliya - it is basic, but food is decent). The lack of tier points and miles for upgrades is annoying.

DOH-CPH from Y to J 1790 QR. Bought the ticket the day before the flight, the upgrade offer appeared online right after the booking. Worth it, even without extra miles or AM access!

As you purchased the day before, was the offer way better than the difference in price? Given you comment i assume it was.

ORD-DOH: coach to biz, $1320, 48 hours in advance. Um, no.

What surprises me is that the destination is ADD and no upgrade was offered from DOH-ADD. Yet I know the biz cabin is wide open.

Much, much better! I paid around 3500 QR for my fare, and when selecting, business was 10.500 QR one way, I ended up paying about half of that all together.

I had a lovely flight btw... 2 glasses of champagne and some nuts before take off, slept almost 5 hours, quick breakfast (the omelet) and a surprisingly good orange juice for breakfast after the seat belt sign was turned back on and I had to raise the seat anyway. Good work, QR!

Any chance for airport upgrade / onboard upgrade for BA tix-stock?
LHR-DOH with BA (Original tix: Premium Eco) was cancelled and I finally opt for QR downgrade in Eco.
New booking class: B but BA-Tix and starts with 125-xx.
