Here’s a great way to get upgraded to business class during a flight.
A 9 year-old boy wrote a note to Jetstar Airways asking about an upgrade for his flight to Bankgkok from Melbourne, Australia.
Jasper Francis sent a handwritten note to Jetstar asking if kids are allowed to fly in business class by themselves. He also let the airline know that he’s saving his pocket money to get an upgrade on his flight on the Boeing 787 Dreamliner! Jasper had already saved $85 and was curious as to how much more money was needed for the upgrade.
News.com.au reports that, “The note touched the hearts of 20 Jetstar staff members who pooled together the $50 Christmas gift vouchers they each received at Christmas to make his dream come true.”
Jasper can not fly alone in business class but the money from the Jetstar staff will be enough to upgrade him and his dad for their flight coming up in June.
The boy and his family also got an invite to tour the Jetstar Dreamliner where he met the crew and got a chance to sit in the pilot’s seat.
Jasper’s mom said that whenever they go to the airport, he asks to be upgraded to business class. It looks like he’ll be getting his wish in a couple of months!
