Every once in a while we all want to take a vacation or visit someone special. Whether you are an avid flyer or this is your first time, you have to know that you can take advantage of that luxurious business class privilege. We know it is expensive – with all the lavish seats, meals and champagne, and great service from the attendants – but here are some tricks where you can grab this luxury at a lower price.
Upgrade by using loyalty points
Airlines nowadays use loyalty points to entice customers into coming back. If you frequently fly, the miles can add up and you can use them one day for upgrading. A good number of airlines allow their customers to get upgrades on tickets bought for cash. If you have accumulated sufficient points over the past several flights, you can use the earned points to get yourself a seat in the business class. Accumulated points normally have an expiration date. Keep yourself updated with the airlines’ newsletters and emails to know when your points are due to expire.
