Finally, it’s here, the feature that will allow you to get cheaper flight upgrades, e.g. to business class, with as many as 36 airlines. To start with, this tool will work best with SAS, as we already have a head start with them in terms of data.
In time, when relevant data comes in from you, our members, the GURU should work with many major airlines, such as the whole Lufthansa Group, Etihad and Qantas, to mention just a few.
WHY: We all know that airlines make $$$ because you bid / pay way too much for your upgrade. By sharing data on how much you have bid for your flight upgrade and whether it was successful or not, you will in turn help out other travellers to save money and points. Just like reviews, it is your own contribution that will in turn help others and yourself benefit from this unique, innovative and free feature.
HOW: When using the FLIGHT UPGRADE GURU®, choose between these key features: Choose “Register your flight upgrade” if you have tried (successfully or not) to upgrade your flight with an airline. We want to know how much your bid was (in cash or points) and if it was successful or not.
Choose “How much should you bid?” if you have booked your flight, are looking to upgrade and want advice on how much you should bid. The advice should help give you an idea how much cash or points you should bid.
Please understand that these are general guidelines based on statistics and should be used with this in mind. There are no guarantees that you will get your upgrades using the advice given as there are unknown variables such as availability and changes in policy.
SHARE: If you like the idea of saving substantially on your upgrades, please use it and share this on Facebook. If people start contributing, this will work, so please share!
