Ten tips to get a flight upgrade without paying for it






Friday newsletters always feature luxury travel contests, tips, series, or news.
Today (May 19, 2017): Travel Tip: how to get a flight upgrade WITHOUT paying for it"
I previously explained how you can book the cheapest plane ticket and save (lots of) moneys. But while it?s exciting to find an excellent deal, the flight itself can still be miserable when you are facing a longhaul flight odyssey in a leg-cramping seat in Economy Class. And unfortunately, most passengers will never fly in anything but cattle class, as Business Class and First Class tickets can be shockingly unaffordable.
So one of the questions I often get is whether there are ways to score a premium seat in the plane without having to pay for the upgrade. While there are some straight-forward strategies, it will often require a mix of skill, emotional intelligence and a considerable amount of luck if you don?t want to spend a penny at all. But the reward is that flying Business or First Class is a highly enjoyable experience, as you can read in my trip reports.
I hereby present you the 10 best travel tricks to get and/or book an airline upgrade without breaking your wallet! You can share your own tips or upgrade experiences in the comments section.

*** Follow me on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook for a daily moment of travel inspiration ***

1. Keep an eye out for Business Class discount deals
Most of us will completely ignore any Business Class fare as it seems out of reach anyway. However, that?s a wrong assumption. Business tends to slow down during the school holidays and airlines cannot fill their Business Class seats, hence selling them at impressively discounted prices, that ? in some cases ? match the price of the tickets for the seats in the crammed back of the plane. For example, British Airways had a sale last month in which transatlantic Business Class seats for summer 2017 were offered at the same price as Economy Class tickets. So subscribe to the newsletter of your favorite airlines and don?t ignore the Business Class sales.

2. Keep an eye out for 2-for-1 Business Class sales
If you are traveling with family or a companion, keep an eye out for 2-for-1 Business Class sales that are occasionally launched by some airlines for a limited time only: you buy one (full-fare) Business Class ticket, and your companion will get a Business Class seat for free. This will cut the cost of flying Business Class, well, in two, often coming close to flying Economy with 2, especially in the more expensive school holidays. Qatar Airways is one of the airlines that regularly announces 2-for-1 Business Class sales.

3. Use your miles to book an upgrade
That?s a classic method of course. You subscribe to the frequent flyer program of an airline, and start collecting miles by flying, staying at hotels, or spending money with the airlines? credit card. You can then redeem your well-earned miles for free Business/First Class flights or upgrades (in additi...
