3 Tips to Score An Upgrade to Your Flight
Often you hear wild stories about people who have scored a free upgrade from their airfare. You can indeed fly in business class through an upgrade, without having to pay more for it, but in reality this is not so easy. For starters, you already need a lot of courage and self-confidence. Of course, those who don’t dare don’t win. Do you want to change from economy to business class for free on your flight? These tips will help you get started on your way to scoring an upgrade from your flight.
Upgrade of your flight, how?
1 Dress and behave nicely
You start at home choosing your clothes. In this way, you will have a little more chance of upgrading your flight than in a jogging. This is just the way it is. You can also help with your exemplary and tidy behaviour. Ask airline staff in a polite and friendly manner if an upgrade is possible. You’ve come a long way.
2 Fly a lot with the same society
However, the best chance of an upgrade is by flying a lot with the same airline or group. They like to show regular customers in selecting an upgrade. Don’t forget to sign up for your airline’s savings program. Otherwise, they have no idea how many miles (the same as miles) you have already traveled. For example, we are enrolled in the American Airlines savings program. . These programmes are also offered in Europe. These savings programs are sometimes called frequent flyer programs. Search for it on your (favorite) airline’s website.
3 Bid on your upgrade
Want more chance of upgrading your flight? Then you can just bid on it these days. These auctions are offered by several airlines. Something Brussels Airlines does too. The other seats on the plane are offered there so that anyone who still wants to can bid on it. As a result, the price is often extremely low and sometimes even free when there is no interest. Worth keeping an eye on!
Some other tips for upgrading your flight
1 Travel alone, if you travel alone, you are more likely to upgrade. This because there is no puzzle, you just get the free seat.
2 Lie for good. Because when you say you’ve just got married, the odds are about 60 percent that you’ll get an upgrade on your flight. This has already been proven. Feigning an injury can also work.
3 Travel in the holidays. There are a little more free tickets in business class because there are simply a lot of business people travelling themselves.
4 Call in advance if there is a spot available. For example, there is a chance that you will already be assigned this upgrade for your flight (without competition). Chances are this is slim, but you can try.
5 Inform yourself well. Because there are also some airlines that don’t do free upgrades at all. It would be stupid for you to ask for an upgrade.
