Tricks For Flying Business Class On An Economy Budget

If you fly often, you may have tried to take a peek around the curtain in front of you to see what was going on in the business class and if things are really that much better up there. The truth is that things are quite a bit nicer in business and first-class, and if you play your airline cards right, you may be able to find out how much better they are for yourself. There are a few ways you can fly business class even if you are on a budget.

Take a Last-Minute Upgrade

If you are booked for a coach seat, and there are business class seats left when you check-in for your flight, you will often be offered an upgrade at a deep discount. If this is an option for you, you should always take it.

You will get a freshly prepared meal and a cocktail included with your flight when you fly business class.  In some airports, you may be able to enjoy a business class lounge that offers free snacks and drinks as well as movies and WiFi service. You can skip sitting in the tiny chairs of the airport waiting area and relax in a comfortable seat while you watch airplanes take off. 

The trick is getting on a flight that will have business class seats available at the last minute. Flights that leave after 6:00 pm tend to be the least popular, and flights on Wednesday and Thursday are the least expensive. 

Fly to Exotic and Less Explored Areas of the World 

Cities like Paris, France, New York, or Rome may be amongst the most popular countries in the world, and they are priced accordingly. However, if you are traveling for fun, you may want to try taking the road and the flight path less taken for an economical adventure. Countries such as Guatemala and Laos offer beautiful natural areas to explore, great food, and a culture that is different from the usual hotspots. 

There are some countries that are actually cheaper to travel to than counties in the United States. You can put the money you save towards a business class ticket and arrive at your destination in style.

Go Through a Travel Service 

There are whole companies that are devoted to finding their customers discounts on business class and first-class tickets. They can find your seats on planes that offer private bedrooms, showers, and bars. They can get you discounts of up to 70%. All you have to do is click the URL to get a price quote.

Join a Frequent Flier Program

Most airlines offer some sort of loyalty program. You simply go onto the companies website and put in your receipt number after you fly. They will occasionally offer a free upgrade to reward you for choosing them.

Everybody deserves to fly business class at least once. Getting where your going is half the fun, and a flight with all the perks will be one of the things that will live in your memory forever.
