Found way to get no cost upgrade on any US flights
Ive recently been traveling back and forth to Europe a lot and stumbled on a way to get an upgrade from economy to economy plus/premium economy on any flights to, from or within the US. It just involves a call to the airline prior to your flight and making a simple request and by law they have to upgrade you at no cost.

This may not seem like a big deal to some of you but at 6'3" 240lbs I like the extra legroom especially on long international flights.

VS

Premium

I dont want to post this publicly as there are too many leechy lurkers and dont want this shut down so will only disclose this via PM to repped members. All I ask is that you not widely disseminate the information as I dont want the loophole to close...deal?

You mean I didn't have to bang that fat gate agent for Economy Plus?

God damnit.

How could they be required by law if there is a limited number of such seats?

If it's by law...and the US...my guess is you have to claim some sort of disability.

Private forum, perhaps?

I'm curious about this. Does it have something to do with disability or height weight?
