Rick Seaney, founder of the online airfare comparison website FareCompare, reveals some travel myths that might even be new to some of you frequent travelers.
Seaney suggests that you may be able to find first class tickets cheaper than coach fares, get lower fares by booking 2 weeks (not months) in advance of your flight, and flying on Saturdays might end up costing you less. Although I’ve debunked 6 other travel myths, here are 4 urban travel legends you should believe.
Wow! Who knew!
Pretty interesting, I *never* check first class fares but will check them out and see what I find next time.
You used to be able to get upgraded if you asked. And sometimes the flight attendant would come and ask PAX to move up. But i haven’t see that in years.
This is great news!
I feel that the airlines are skimping on upgrades – even when passengers have been bumped from flights or left sitting in the airport for hours.
For under-booked flights some passengers (maybe the most frequent fliers) should be moved up to a higher class. After a taste of the high life more people who fly coach might be more inclined to purchase slightly higher tickets…or less, according to Rick in the video above!
