How to upgrade to a First Class Flight

Sep 3rd 2014 at 10:33 PM

Sometimes it so happens that you book a ticket and later find out that your office is paying for it. Well in that case, obviously, you would want to upgrade. Or sometimes, your plans change and you wish to have a refreshing flight. In this case too, upgrading is the only option. No matter what your reason is, following are the ways to carry out an effective and economical upgrading. After all, everyone wants to get their hands on cheap first class flights.

On Arrival

Reach the airport a little early and see if an upgrade to first class is available. It is obviously a risk to wait till the last minute but these upgrades are cheap and you may just be lucky enough to find one.

Early check-in

Always get to the airport hours before the flight and check-in early. Usually only one or two upgrades are available. So whoever arrives early gets to avail the upgrade to first class at significantly lower price.

Luck Counts

By now, you must have realized a lot counts on your luck. Many airlines tend to over-book flights and it usually is not a big deal. But sometimes all the passengers who booked tickets show up. This is amazing news for those who are looking for an upgrade to first class. The airlines are desperate in these situations and are ready to shift some passengers to first class which is usually not too full. Under such circumstances, the airlines are willing to bargain. Be the savior and ask for a cheap upgrade. They will happily facilitate you.

Go for the easy way

I know many of you want to follow the easy way and not leave things hanging till the last minute. So those who hate taking risks, the easiest way is to buy an upgrade. This may be a bit expensive option but it sure is the safest one.

Be Direct

Contact the airline directly and ask if you can get an upgrade. Using a middle man and travel agent is not always advisable since he will surely keep some commission for himself.

Browse the internet

The internet never disappoints. A few Google searches will eventually lead you to your goal. With the introduction of countless air travel businesses, now travelers are more likely to find not only cheap tickets but cheap upgrades too.

Frequent Flier

If you fly regularly, then it is advisable to join the frequent flier program. When you successfully fly a certain number of miles, the airline grants you the elite status. This status entitles passengers to various incentives like first class upgrades and extra baggage.

Where there is a will, there is a way


If you don’t fly that often, there is still a way to get an upgrade using airline miles. You can now purchase airline miles from different websites at a good price. But before you buy them, do the math and make sure that the miles are a beneficial purchase.
