How To Get To the Front of the Plane

Sitting in the front of the plane

Who doesn’t love sitting up front when you fly? Yeah, every single one of us.  One of the best things about collecting miles and points is you have the option to take advantage of the best class of service when you want to.  You get to enjoy the best of the best, all without spending a dime.

Something I recently discovered is there are a lot of opportunities for purchasing business and first class tickets for little more (sometimes even less!) than economy tickets.  I’m not talking about crazy expensive, fully refundable, overpriced economy fares, but normal priced ones we would all consider if we needed to fly somewhere on our own dime.

Amy and I recently took advantage of one of these opportunities, booking first class on Delta for both of us for $25 less than economy on the cheapest airline we could find (at the time it was Southwest).  We took advantage of a companion coupon we had on Delta.

One of the key resources that has gotten me thinking outside the box when it comes to purchased, as well as award airfare, is First Class Flyer.  This monthly newsletter details lots of ways to purchase cheap business and first class airfare, along with ways to maximize your miles and point redemptions for the best seats on the plane.

In the spirit of the holidays, we are going to give away THREE 12-week subscriptions to First Class Flyer.  One of the coolest things is you’ll have access to the entire archive of past FCF newsletters during the 3 months.  If you put in some reading time, you’ll learn a TON about getting to the front of the plane.

To enter, all you need to do is (Do one or all, each one will get you an entry)

Giveaway closes on Saturday, December 20th at midnight (pacific time)  and winner will be announced Sunday. CLOSED
