These days, it’s more difficult to earn a first class seat if you don’t make a serious investment. Airlines are more interested in selling business class tickets than giving them away. Below are the tips to take in consideration when looking for a cheap flight seat upgrade.
1. Show Good Manners.
You should be polite and un-pushy with the airline staff as they are the ones who make the decisions on seat upgrades. Becoming an acquaintance with the gate agent can increase the likelihood of getting a first class seat. It would be generous of you to give gate agents a small treat such as chocolates in exchange for a seat upgrade.
