How much is typically the YQ on award ticket? NYC-TLV.
About $150 each way (there's no YQ if you book through Quantas).

Thanks.
With Quantas it won't be worth it for me, don't have TY points, only SPG not worth it versus paid ticket.

For coach it doesnít really make a difference. Itís more for business where qantas makes much more sense

What are the business class seats on the 747 from jfk to tlv like? Worth the extra 36K points on Qantas?

Consider they usually retail for 3-5x economy

If I book regular economy with points, can I upgrade afterwards to PE with points?

No. Only certain fare classes can be upgraded and itís not the same fare class as a points ticket

Does anyone know if/how it's possible to see current seat maps (economy) for an upcoming ELAL flight and change seats (before online check-in opens)? I know with United it's possible to open your reservations and see current seat availability and change whenever you want (on their website and app). was wondering if/how on ELal. Thanks!

When I go to my reservation, there is an option to change the meal, but none to change the seat. I made my reservation through Chase Ultimate Rewards, should that make a difference?

Is it possible to use matmid or quantas points to upgrade a seat from economy to premium economy? even when booked on lowest economy rate?  and when you used a travel agent like the ultimate rewards to book your ticket/
