I know that sale international fares are not eligible for points upgrades. but are they available for bid now upgrades (ie the ones Qantas invites individuals)
Hi Mark, I replied as a comment as there may be others that have more specific experience to share.
https://www.pointhacks.com.au/qantas-virgin-upgrade-fare-classes/ says in 2016 that there are no specifics as to which fare class are eligible or not eligible to bid for upgrades. You will have to wait until 7 days before your flight and see whether you will be invited to bid.
I am sure you already know most of this and that Classic Upgrade Rewards comes as priority first over Bid upgrades.
However, I did find when I did a Google search, of success stories of Bid now upgrades. e.g. on Ausbt websites. Maybe they would be of some help if they disclose what type of fare they initially purchase.
