  1. The one step that always works for me is to walk up to the counter at check in and hand them a business class ticket. Always works.

  2. Lol. I was travelling with mom and my young bro, we all got upgraded to business class because we signed up for membership at the time of booking, and asked about business class upgrade pricing several times. So yeah, it’s a miracle we all 3 got the upgrade.

    It was Emirates flight from Hanoi to Warsaw via Dubai.

  3. I flew buisness class for free cause my dad works in an airline (air canada) so we always fly for free! Also in business Class

  4. Not saying this will never work, but 9 out of 10 times airlines upgrade according to frequent flyer status rather than whatever story you come up with.

  5. Too close to Casey Neistat style. Practically a copy. Can't you be a bit different maybe to show some value?

  6. Bullshit. Do you even know how many people are members of airline loyalty programmes? No one cares… Only status passengers and high fare class passengers are standing a chance of being upgraded. Don’t buy this crap 😂

  7. buddy your way is awesome except some of airplane which the business located on second floor of plane and this this way wont work and u will enjoy the sounds of flash toilet and people who always pass you for toilet. :)))

  8. That happened to me! On a Emirates flight too, didn't do anything. Being a long distance solo traveller has its perks!!

  9. This worked for me on a small, low budget airline called Allegiant Airways. I deliberately let the computer pick my seat knowing that it only selects the cramped, super budget seats, and not any of the extra legroom ones that cost extra (and you have to reserve at the time you're setting up your flight details). 24 hours before I checked in and my seat was, ofc, a tiny cramped one. I called up the airlines and said I was trying to upgrade to the comfy seat because I had poor circulation and just couldn't sit cramped up in their regular seats (which which true, but I'd been putting up with it for years on their planes). She upgraded me for free. It was the first time in years that I didn't spend all night with both legs cramping up so bad it brought tears. Had I purchased the seats at the time of reservation it would've cost an extra 25 bucks. Which doesn't sound like a big deal, but the point was to stay low budget. 25 bucks each way is an extra 50 bucks round trip added to the flight.

  10. Just find an airline that always overbook, but never actually punch people out of the planes (*cough* United Airlines *cough*), and get in the plane as the very last passenger in the boarding queue.
    More often than not, you get free upgrade just because they already book your seats to another person.
    Works with up to three people, although chances are bigger if you're alone.
    Got free business class upgrade once in AirChina with this trick, with one of my friend getting it too at the same flight.

  11. BAHAHA he's got his trolls posters posting about how " this works" to up the views and likes. Yea okay. Lets see that work on hidden cam. this may work 1 out of 10 times. They don't always have available seats and you're lucky if you get bulkhead seats. You're not the only on'e who's polite. There are lot more persuasive people who are good with their words who will also try.

  12. One way to get a upgrade for dirt cheap is to smile politely and ask "Is there anyway I could get a free upgrade?" and put a $50 or $100 note on the counter while keeping their gaze.

  13. My flight was full, I fled alone, I bought my ticket last minute because my mom was dying and I needed more room to rest on plane so that I could rush to the hospital after I landed. I asked politely if I could pay a bit more to upgrade to premium economy, the answer was I needed to add $700 Canadian (the ticket was $850)…. so mean.. then I asked if I could get a seat with more legroom.. the answer was no. By the way, I think I also dressed very nice. So what have I done wrong? All he asked was if my mom is contagious because he wanted to document it. He saw that my returned flight would be in three days. No one would fly 12 hours if not for family emergency. I was very upset.

  14. You got upgraded because you’re a good looking dude. Ugly ppl rarely get upgraded. As I’ve flown so much, I’ve rarely seen anyone upgraded who was ugly. You’re so not ugly.

  15. I used to work for the airline and this is 100% spot on, how you carry yourself and how you present yourself will go a long way if you are looking for an upgrade. Also, never drink the hot water on the plane.

  16. There wasn't any seat available in Economy that's why they have given you a seat in business class. Otherwise you can always bid for an upgrade rather than paying for the extra legroom seat.

  17. Yeah the intro really makes it seem like a sociopath, or even psychopath, due to the planned, manipulated social interaction

  18. This is the first video of yours I've watched. Its well done. I am very impressed by your overall attitude, shown in your comments at the end. I'll definitely watch more of yours. Thanks for this info!

  19. lol you said " the answer is almost yes" but then you said "the worst mistake you can make is expecting an upgrade"??? So that went from 98% to hit or miss????

  20. As someone who works for this airline, it’s true that the only way you can get upgraded for free (without using miles) is when economy class is oversold. However, it has nothing to do with how you’re dressed or whether or not you ask for an upgrade (although it is so annoying when people are constantly asking for/demanding free upgrades), but rather how much you paid for your ticket. The people who paid the most are the ones to be on top of the list (yes, it is an actual list!) for an upgrade, regardless of whether they are a Skywards member or not. Your membership status doesn’t play ANY role in this type of upgrade- I have witnessed Platinum members remaining in economy class while non-members get upgraded to business class (or first if business is full- if their original booking was business).

    Oh and one more thing- if you book through an agency, even if you paid the most for the ticket you will not get the free upgrade. Reason: we cannot access the payment details, only the agency can. To increase your chances of a free upgrade, book your ticket through the airline directly.

  21. Is not how you dress is about the airline is trained to get new passenger to buy business or whatever seat that is more expensive so if you are a new member of their special group points stuff they would upgrade you because they will give you a free test so they hope you start buying more business or first class seats since hey give you a free trial

  22. my dad and his friend once got an upgrade to first class because people were literally fighting in economy class over the seats and things and my dad and his friends just stood aside the flight attendants obviously liked their manner (not fighting) and upgraded them

  23. Stipud childe!!! You thnk you are smart don`t you? You fucking go on my fucking nerves listen at your bad english and stupid way of talking. No one can understand what you fucking mean. Small man big idiot. Go back to school or let you fuck in that beautiful mouth of yours.

    What a fucking trash video!!!!!!! I would not let you in any plane stupid childe. PISS OFF

  24. Not the most frequent flyer, but i recently got 3 seat changes to comfort plus and bulkhead just by asking at the gate. i’m 6”5’ and i asked nicely if there is any chance to get one of those seats with extra legroom space.

  25. Just contact hacker Phil via WhatsApp +1(631)714-2240 he’ helped me to increase my credit score to 840 and he helps to load my bank account for free I’m now less insolvent. This can be of help to some of you.. thanks!

  26. The ground agent made a mistake by assigned my seat to biz because my carry on was over weight. She had me unpacked then reissued a boarding pass. Surprisingly, when I was on board, my seat was a biz!
    Hope she didn't get in trouble!

  28. First time flying alone, 13 hour flight sort of half full deck. If i put on puppy eyes and seem scared what are my chances

  29. I upgraded to 1st class 3 times, once with my husband. 2 of those trips were only $50, once was $100.00. each time those 1st class tickets started at $800 per person and an upgrade beforehand would of been an additional $200+ per trip. I just went online 24 hours before the flights to do online check-in & upgrades when available. Oh, you do to be a rewards member. So not free but free alcohol, great legroom and epic food is well worth the few extra dollars.

  30. I got an upgrade on an Emirates flight, and me and two other ps from our family got an upgrade to business class. Best moment of my life…

  31. I think it was because the flight was full, and the two others with me as well as myself signed up for skywards.

  32. So, we were checking in our luggage and my mother was addressing the man who was checking us in as "Son", this guy was probably older than my granddad. So my mum says to, "Please give us good seats", he smiled and said "you'll have excellent seats."Boarded our first short flight (An hour long) got regular economy seats. Boarded the long haul flight, we were in Business Class!

  33. I got myself and my mum and sister upgraded to first class Sydney to la, and return, because I called in advance to enquire, and then at airport i asked again. Just before boarding our names were called up, they ripped our tickets up, and gave us first class and wished us merry Christmas. Was incredible! Enjoyed the sit down bar and flat bed!

  34. hey guys you can reach out to Webghost33 on skype. He's a professional cyberspace agent who can help you get cheap flight tickets and accomodation to anywhere in the world. This guys can hack into any system and reduce prices of things. I couldn't believe it when i traveled business class to Australia in July. I spent about $1800 lesser the usual amount i normally spend.

  35. Dale Carnegie would have been proud of you – it's basically all he ever taught. Well done for your common sense approach.
