We all want to know how to fly first class or business class cheaply, or at least, how to get cheap first class or business class tickets on airlines. They only the trouble is, many of us do not have the time or the skills to do it. My friend is pretty good at flying first class all of the time using points and hacks, so we asked him to have a look at the online service, called First Class Flyer. The team at First Class Flyer are the airfare upgrade specialists, and they aim to help you to score those upgrades to business and preferably to first class. Our friend says they are very good, and he has now joined the program to receive the goodies. We trust his judgment.

In the words of First Class Flyer, “You might be someone who would otherwise endure economy because First Class and Business Class is far too extravagant. Or someone who would never endure economy but loathes, nearly as much, paying outrageously for First Class or Busines”. That seems to be on point.

History of First Class Flyer

First Class Flyer has an interesting history. It was created 20 years ago by Matthew Bennett. He was a baseball pitcher with the Kansas City Royals farm team. The team traveled a lot, and Matt figured out how it was done. He studied generic cialis india airline schedules and fine-print minutiae to find the best options. Other team members quickly followed his lead and in effect it grew from there; earning him the name of Mr Upgrade.

Mr Upgrade

Matthew is called “Mr. Upgrade” and is regularly consulted by the New York Times, Wall Street Journal and Condé Nast Traveler. First Class Flyer is independent of the airlines and do not receive any kickbacks from First Class Flyer. They are a separate entity.

If you find an upgrade deal on the First Class Flyer site, the applicable airline availability codes are provided which you can simply pass on to your travel agent or airline reservationist. It’s all simply laid out and easy to access.

The “Wimbledon Widget” is a tool for luxury travelers. You select your departure city and destination, and whether you want to fly Business or First Class. I need to add that not all cities are there as yet. Sydney was missing. However if you are flying to London for example, you can see the seat availability on any given date, and when you roll the mouse over the date you get information such as what events are happening on that day at Wimbledon, or sightseeing ideas for London.
