Airlines Not Happy With Passengers Taking First Class Blankets

First ClassWhen you fly in premium cabins during a flight, odds are pretty high that the amenities offered will be pretty nice.

Travel + Leisure says that, “First class is getting more luxurious all the time.” Due to the airlines offering nicer items up front, some passengers like to take souvenirs home. Continue reading Airlines Not Happy With Passengers Taking First Class Blankets

Time To Reserve Your American Airlines Business Class Meal

American Airlines Business Class

I recently wrote about how Lucas and I were heading off on our first Father Son Trip.

This trip is bound to be an interesting adventure but we’ll be flying in style in business class! (Check out my Poland Trip Planning post here.)

On the way to Poland we flew in AA Business Class. (On the way home, we’re flying with Air Berlin.) Continue reading Time To Reserve Your American Airlines Business Class Meal

Etihad Biz Class Upgrade Offer At Check-In

Etihad Business Class Upgrade

Just before we left on our trip to the Middle East Gulf States (booked during what I’d consider the best flight connection ever), I had an interesting e-mail from Etihad.

They actually sent me the offer multiple times.

Etihad was offering me the chance to upgrade to business class by essentially bidding for the seats. By making Etihad an offer between $1,100 – $1,800 each way, I could potentially be sitting in a comfy biz class seat rather than in coach. Continue reading Etihad Biz Class Upgrade Offer At Check-In

Making an Offer to Upgrade to Etihad Biz Class. Is It Worth It?

Etihad Business Class

Towards the end of December 2014 I wrote about what I’d consider The Best Flight Connection Ever.

While on the way to Jamaica, I was able to book a flight (for myself,  Kim and  Lucas) to Abu Dhabi on Etihad (in coach) for the incredible price of $232.53 per person which came to a total of $697.60.

During the trip we’ll be moving around quite a bit and it sure would be nice to move upfront on our (now) direct 13 hour flight from New York.

Etihad has been offering me the chance to make an offer to upgrade to business class. Continue reading Making an Offer to Upgrade to Etihad Biz Class. Is It Worth It?

Is it right for parents to fly upfront in premium cabins while their kids fly in coach?

My gut instinct would be to quickly say no, never. However, I think each case needs to be looked into a bit more closely. Continue reading Should Parents Fly Biz Class & Have Kids Sit In Coach?

KLM is running a new promotion called Flat or Not, giving away 2 tickets in KLM World Business Class to one lucky winner.

In order to get the word out KLM converted a regular seat at Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport to a full-flat bed. They put together a funny video showing how people reacted when they had the seat unknowingly reclined on them. The first person to stay in the seat and go full-flat won 2 tickets on KLM.

Check out the video: Continue reading Win 2 KLM Biz Class Tickets + Funny Video

Place A Bid, Upgrade To Austrian Business Class

Don’t forget to enter my giveaway for a chance to win 1 of 5 Gogo Passes!

Ever wonder what an upgrade to Business Class might be worth? I’m not really willing to pay to upgrade but you can try to figure it out and place a bid, possibly scoring a bargain priced upgrade.

Earlier in the day I received an e-mail from Austrian Airlines related to social media which also celebrated reaching 200,000 Facebook fans. Congrats on the achievement I guess…

I scrolled a bit further down the e-mail and came across a pretty interesting way to possibly upgrade to Business Class.
