I don’t have much experience traveling in (international) business class. I recently upgraded a flight for 3 people but I am hesitant to pay again to reserve the seats. As far as I know they’ll let me choose the seats day before departure. Question — am I taking any risk by not assigning seats? I’m guessing since I already paid, they’ll hold the seats for us. Granted we may or may not be able to sit together, I just want to make sure they’ll hold 3 seats.

I assume when you say upgraded, that means you were in economy but paid to upgrade to business, which was to R fare on Qatar (or you just straight purchased R fare business class). A couple of years back, Qatar introduced R fare for business where you have to pay for seat selection and don’t get access to the lounge.
I would check the seat available before paying for the seat. If business class is half way full, you can just ask to sit together at check-in. If seating together is important and the flight looks to be near full, then paying may be worth it for you.

Yes. It’s the Qsuite upgrade type R. Honestly, Qsuites are so comfortable and private that I don’t think it’d be a big deal if we cannot sit together. I am however able to assign seats 24 hours prior to the flight. I think I’ll jump on it once the window opens to eliminate any bad seats (which are also hard to come by in a Qsuite).

FYI, we’re flying Qatar.

What class did you upgrade to?

You should be able to choose your seats if you were upgraded. If not, Business class isn’t that big, even if you’re not sitting next to each other, your people should be really close by.
