    Budget Travel: How to get a free upgrade

    I'm not sure many non-elites score free seats up front...even if upgrading with miles, money, or an SWU, there's still a cost somewhere. I highly doubt many op up's go to non-elites as well.

    Always a favorite!:p

    This has only worked once in aviation history and the recipient was married to the gate agent!

    I still cannot believe some of the things people buy into. I have a colleague who is convinced being well dressed = upgrades. He used to be a Silver Medallion...somehow I've found being a Diamond facilitates upgrades much more so than how I'm dressed.

    Money seems to work the best. BUY your upgrade, But I guess that ain't a free upgrade either.

    Buying a suit isn't cheap either, especially if it then doesn't work ;)
