Who has managed this?

What trick did you use?

I might be able to get free upgrades for the rest of my life in six years time - announce that i'm a doctor and request a Business Class seat in exchange for being on call if necessary...

    It work if you're a girl, golden curls, and charming face. And ask nicely to be replaced from your seat as it's too close to the toilets/the man next to you stinks/you prefer to sit as close to the front as possible (without suggesting buisness class, as then you definitely won't get transferred).
    So far it has worked for my friend 6 or so times.

    i don't know any tricks but one of my mates who teaches in singapore has gotten upgraded to business class on 5 occasions. The only time she wasn't upgraded she was flying with a friend.

    my boyfriend flew out to japan 3 weeks ago. he booked off a last minuite website and he requested extra leg room (he's 6 foot 4) however it did say when he booked that it was not garanteed. he got to manchester airport and the request hadnt even been passed on, changed at milan and it was the same so as a gesture of apoligy they upgraded him to first class with seats that go practically flat and free drinks ect. lucky b%$£%rd

    Apparently if you have a phd and hence use the title "dr" you often get free upgrades. According to a friend who has just started hers.

    I've had a couple of free upgrades. Generally looking smart when travelling helps or being as shameless as my step mother who will just come out and ask for it.

    What if you're not really a doctor, announce you're on call and they need you.....???

    one would then be regarded as a foolish little bastard and would probably be arrested for obtaining goods under false pretences...

    why would anyone gamble on this, i wonder?

    Yeah, but suppose you want to go to sleep? Suppose you're getting an a flight and the first thing you think is 'i want a double scotch and a pillow'... you'll be far more comfortable in Business.

    Plus the food is better and you can pretty much have bacon sandwiches on tap.

    Plus the entertainment system is better.
