When you log in to your Dashboard, look for the QCalculator. That should give you the answer on how many QCredits you need.

There is unfortunately no way to combine QCredits and QMiles, so expect to end up with some unused (unusable) QCredits....

Iím trying to upgrade the following from economy to business
LHR - DOH QR4 17th Oct
DOH - CGK QR956 18th Oct
Economy saver fare class Q
Flights seem to be about 50% full in business looking at Seat Alerts.
Iím getting no availability, does anyone has experience on availability becoming available closer to the date? Iíve never been able to upgrade online, always at the airport (although LHR tends to limit to 2/3 upgrades per flight). Ideally Iíd like to use my 40 Qcredits on one sector, does anyone know how I find out how many are needed for the sectors? Also can I combine Qcredits and miles on an individual sector?
Many thanks in advance.

I just checked. No upgrades available as of now.
Does the upgrade inventory come out of the same as the business award inventory? Is that a reliable way of checking available upgrades prior to booking the flight?

You can check QR availability on ba.com by simulating a avios booking. Faster than via qr website... Via qantas website works as well but itís not very intuitive..

Generally, yes. Although we have seen the odd occasion on this board where an upgrade doesn't go through even with availability showing - and the QRPC team aren't able to resolve either. Checking business *standard* award availability (not Q2) is the *most* reliable way though
