This trick will ensure you a free flight or upgrade to first class
We all dream of getting an upgrade and fly in the first-class because of some mistake by the airlines.
Unfortunately, that dream is almost coming true.
But one flight specialist shared some tricks of the game and he claims that this is the only way to ensure getting the upgrade that we all dream about.
We all think that unless we are really rich, we will never get a seat in first class.
But according to Gilbert Ott, who spoke with Metro, it doesn't have to be the case.
He said buying flight tickets for a full flight (Over-Booking) is the only way you will get an upgrade or compensation.
He told the Metro: "one thing that is same about full flights is that someone's card will have to be canceled, and when that card is canceled, they receive compensation, an upgrade, or both".
"This compensation can be a free flight on the flight you already paid of, or a future flight for free, and if there is free spac anywhere in the front part of the plane, it is not rare that you get an upgrade to first class as an 'appreciation' for staying flexible".
"Sometimes you can be lucky in a record time of business flights – during the week, when those who have many emails get your place on the flight".
As for the traditional methods as a way to get an upgrade or compensation — like pretending that you are late or you're on your honeymoon – Ott says don't even try.
So there you have it. Do you want to receive free flight or fly in first class? Just try to reserve a place on a full flight.
