A quick question. I'm flying with QR (two sectors). I upgraded one sector with miles (it wasn't offered for the other). Is there still an opportunity I will receive a cash upgrade offer for my second sector even though I upgraded the first sector or do they only offer cash upgrades for the entire journey?

Yes, there is still a possibility for you to receive a cash upgrade offer but that offer would not appear earlier than 15 days before departure.

does anyone know if QR offers cash upgrade offers to F? flying DOH-MLE in a month, and the loads on most flights (including mine, which is showing F6) seem empty. wondering if they'll offer attractive pricing for this route since via upgrade.

These flights are operated by CX metal. QR is running out of planes, so they're leasing Cathay 777 birdies. It's now in a 4 class configuration! (Although Y class pax will be reseated in the P.E. cabin).

I did not receive an email about an upgrade but I did see an offer in the manage my booking screen. If I take it, will I get credited for the business class or would the SUO rules also apply and only give me the economy credits (on BA Exec Club)?

Someone has reported getting Tier Points according to Business when crediting to BAEC about a month ago, although standard procedure is that you would be getting Avios and Tier Points according to your original fare bucket so I would suggest not to rely on Business Tier Points in this case.

For me, credited in Asia Miles (CX), they gave me points according to original economy class fare.
