Domestic Premium Economy fares on QF9/QF10 MEL-PER-MEL start at $1249 one way and are now available for purchase and travel. Frequent Flyer members can request a Classic Reward Upgrade from Economy to Premium Economy, and customers with a confirmed Premium Economy seat will be able to request a Classic Reward Upgrade to Business. Qantas Frequent Flyers will earn 2,700 points when travelling on a Premium Economy Saver fare and 2,900 points when travelling on a Premium Economy Flexible fare, along with 40 Status Credits. Customers will need to be members of the Qantas Club or an eligible Qantas Frequent Flyer member to access lounges in Melbourne and/or Perth. Domestic customers travelling from Perth to Melbourne on QF10 with access to Qantas Club or Business lounges can request an On-Departure Upgrade Reward from three hours before scheduled departure until boarding commences. This is subject to availability in the applicable booking class and airport operational requirements. On-Departure Upgrades are not available for customers travelling from Melbourne to Perth on QF9. These sectors form part of an international flight, so customers travelling domestically on QF9/QF10 will arrive and depart from international terminals in Melbourne and Perth and international travel requirements will apply, including: Check-in and bag drop at the international airport terminal close 60 minutes before departure Customers will need valid photo ID to check-in; and International carry-on baggage restrictions apply, including limits on powders, liquids, aerosols and gels. However, customers won’t be eligible and must not use a passport with SmartGates in either Melbourne or Perth. Customers will be required to see a Customer Service Agent at the airport to have the Domestic “D” sticker applied to their boarding pass, so international processing won’t apply.
