Flight Only / Airline and Airports

Discussions relating to flight only, airlines and airports.
3 times. BA around 20 years ago from LHR to JFK from WT to Club. In 2003 with Lufthansa from Frankfurt to Bangkok again economy to Business and once flying from Mexico City to Palenque economy to business. Never to first though.

I often asked for an upgrade in the past especially when flying longhaul. The Mexican one though I didn't ask for but when I saw row two on my boarding card I knew where I would be sitting. I'm no longer flying as often as previously, mostly short haul and I'm often flying budget so no upgrades. The last couple of longhaul flights though have been in paid or redeemed business class so I'm waiting for an upgrade to first. Maybe on my trip to Namibia in the July, though I don't have any status now as I'm not flying very often so I doubt I will ever see a first class seat unless I want to pay for it.
So you got double upgrades! You were really lucky!
I think it's almost impossible these days to get a free upgrade. I was lucky because I was usually travelling solo, and there was often the odd seat free.
I know. I have to laugh at all the articles you see about how to get a free upgrade. You can dress anyway you like- they will have decided before you even get to the airport!
