Qantas new bid-to-upgrade service

Travel News 01 Feb 2015

Qantas Frequent Flyers now have another way to request an upgrade with the launch of the new online invite-only bidding system.

Bid Now Upgrades will be introduced across the Qantas network starting 10th February, allowing invited Frequent Flyers booked in Economy and Premium Economy to make an offer for a Business upgrade with a combination of cash and Qantas Points – this makes Qanta’s bid for upgrades unique in the market.

The program will be allocated after all Classic Upgrade Rewards (points-only upgrades) have been processed. The new system ranks below Classic Upgrade in terms of priority and value, but gives members the flexibility to supplement points with a cash payment.

The new upgrade option follows other changes by Qantas to unlock revenue opportunities, including a significant increase in aircraft utilisation that has seen new routes and extra services added to its network.
