    I want to redeem Qantas miles for an ELAL 787 biz class ticket, from TLV-EWR. The dates I want they don't have any availability, all they have available is economy, does anyone know of a way to upgrade? Is there a way to buy or use miles to upgrade?

    Well, if you buy your ticket directly from ELAL, you'd need ELAL miles/points to upgrade if there is space.

    You could use QF miles to purchase the ticket in economy and hope business class space opens up and then changing your ticket.

    I thought of that, it's just elal charges significantly more, I don't think they have space either, and they have fuel surcharges

    I booked economy on ElAl's 787 with Qantas-there were no business or premium economy available with points. If seats open for upgrade (expertflyer Class R), can I use El Al Matmid points for the upgrade-even though I booked the initial economy seats with Qantas points?

    No, if you booked with Qantas, you'd need Qantas to upgrade and it'll be based on Qantas's upgrade rules.
