    That is an awesome deal. I did this trip in cattle class, and although I got extra legroom, I would have much preferred business.

    Are you based in Texas by chance?

    Nope. I'm in California. Most likely, I won't be using this offer.

    I received the same offer and I'm nowhere near DFW. Premium economy isn't cheap, though. I checked some sample September dates and they priced at around $3,500+ DFW-SYD-DFW.

    It's tough to find QF J for less than $9k.

    Business is two steps up from cattle class, though.

    Totally agree. However I was pretty happy with my $990USD return fare with taxes included. So I can't really complain too much.

    Try it from SYD to DFW return.. you'll be paying around $5200AUD ($5400USD) return.

    $3500 is cheap! (and QF's Y+ is far closer to 'Business lite' in it's quality of food/beverages; excluding the lack-of-champagne, and its comfort/leg room). I'd be doing that in an instant if I was there (you struggle to find any ex-AU fares on any carriers premium economy to the USA for that!

    I am in California and I received it too. The free upgrade is only for one way and QF picks which segment to upgrade.

    Took a while to find the photo of the premium economy seat. I had an op-up LAX-SYD to it in 2009 (did better on the way home SYD-SFO where I got an op-up to business). The seat does have a small footrest. $3,500RT is way outside my budget, though, so you'll never see me buying a seat in that class.
