Snag a seat in business class with a little insight from the travel gurus at Flight Centre. Manager of Flight Centre First and Business Travel Paul Jeffels offers some insider advice.
So, how do I score an upgrade on my next trip?
Paul Jeffels: Travel on busy or overbooked flights, travel alone and be a loyal frequent flyer. Rather than at check-in, a lot of upgrades happen at the gate when the airline knows how many people have turned up for the flight. A polite inquiry at the gate around 35 minutes before the flight is worth a try.
