That elusive upgrade

Airline upgrades have always eluded me. I recently read an article on-line at the Lonley Planet site.

The article is  an extract from the LP magazine. In the original article  LP editor Tom Hall offers advice on how to increase your chances of getting upgraded.

His tips:

  • Become a member of the Airlines loyalty program — Check!
  • Travel on a busier flight — Hmmmm
  • Travel Solo — Check
  • Look smart  – Of course!
  • Be nice to check in staff   — Yes
  • Get tagged as SFU ( Suitable for upgrade)   — How in the world do I do that!

 

 

An upgrade around the corner?

I believe there is no science involved in the mystery of airline upgrades. It is  just plain luck .  Having said that  I am feeling kind of lucky lately.

Does that seat in First Class have my name on it? There is only one way to find out!
