The Only Way To Get An Upgrade To First Class

The Only Way To Get An Upgrade To First Class

If you read the story about the guy who blogged his trip in first class last week, you probably thought, 'yeah, that's the life for me,' and then Googled it, saw the price and realised it wasn't going to happen.

Don't get too upset, though, because now one lad has come forward to tell everyone how they can get that free upgrade.

Gilbert Ott told the Metro that opting for oversold flights is the 'only practical tip to get an upgrade'. When a flight is oversold the airline will either upgrade, compensate or both. So, win-win.

He said: "That compensation can make a paid trip into a free flight, or provide a future free flight, and assuming there's room up front on the next flight, it's not at all uncommon to get the upgrade as a 'thanks for being flexible'."

"My biggest successes were always during peak travel periods - the winter holidays, summer and spring breaks, times when planes are flying full and it's chaos."

So, now you know, will you be giving this a try?
