We’ve all boarded a long-haul moody and had to walk past a bucket of magisterial business forms in entirely extendable seats, to get to the own close sofa at the back of the plane.
If only you knew how to get a free moody upgrade so that you too could fly in the path of luxury.
Well, a few months ago, we reported that the only sure-fire way of getting one of those changed First or Business Class seats but air miles was by opting to book on oversold flights.
But it turns out that even if you do that, you could be hampering your chances of that changed upgrade – by grouping a special meal.
Kosher, vegan and gluten-free options tend to have ‘a little some-more adore and care’ paid to them, according to Nik Loukas who has worked in the moody attention for over a decade and runs a transport website reviewing aeroplane food.
He tells Business Insider UK that people who are looking to get a free upgrade shouldn’t even consider about requesting one of these special dishes since they’ll be immediately overlooked.
‘If there’s a special dish ask in your booking, the airline won’t even demeanour at you (for an upgrade),’ he says.
But why? Surely it’s no skin off their nose if you eat your kosher cooking in manager or in Business?
‘Because you’ve got a dietary requirement, and they competence not be means to support for you if they upgrade you.’
The dishes are of a opposite customary in any class, so while they competence be means to accommodate you in economy, they competence not indispensably have the oppulance chronicle of that dish on standby.
Nik, who’s now crowdfunding to film a documentary into plane food, says that he privately wouldn’t ask a special dish as he knows how much bid goes into making them.
Which curiously enough, creates me wish to sequence one more.
