Getting a free upgrade to first class isn't easy, people who've paid for first class don't want a scruffy nobody riding free when they had to pay.
Because of this the check-in attendants wont give free upgrades to anyone, you have to look like the kind of guy who would shell out that bit extra for first class,
This instructable will tell you how to do exactly that.
Step 1: Presentation
Presentation is key, look like a bum and you'll probably get a downgrade to the cargo area.
1st Class is for business-men and billionaires, Billionaires wont be asking for a free upgrade so your going to have to be a business-man.
Business-man check list :
- Copy of Financial Times
- Shiny black shoes
- Glasses ?
- Sensible Hair
- Clean shaven
- No long hair
- No spiky/roughed up hair
- No Backpacks
- No other clothes other than a suit
- No Beard/Stubble
- No Cheesy grin
- No earrings/piercings
- No visible tattoos
Step 2: Body Language
So your pretending to be a business man, you dress like one now you have to act like one.
Business men go through airports all the time and they know the drill , they could check in blind-folded whilst on a uni-cycle so now you have to know the system too,
Before joining a check in line look for an older woman working the desk, she is probbaly more experienced and more likely to give you an upgrade.
Whilst waiting in the line for check in get your ticket and passport out, hold them by your side whilst pretending to check for messages on your phone, don't clutch your tickets like a noob traveler, pretend there worth nothing to you.
Don't engage in conversation with anyone around you, Business men are solitary travelers.
Stand upright, don't slouch, Look at your phone don't gaze around. Basically act sophisticated and look like you know what your doing.
