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?

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.

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

Just used this successfully again for 9th or 10th time (first time on KLM) flight from Prague to Amsterdam to LAX. This works

Just so guys know, this trick works.

I used it from Norfolk to KC to Portland a few weeks ago.

Aloha!

If you went to Portland, you probably took a lesbian's seat, thus denying her existence.

Hope the legroom was worth her erasure.

But I didn't eat any "farm to table" food, which is the official cuisine of Portland thus restoring the balance.

If flying to Portland, each time erases a lesbian existence, I will fly Paris-Portland (and return) each day of my life until I'm one-hundred years old or no lesbian is left in the world.

I've also discovered one weird trip that absolutely guarantees that the people in your row will demand that the flight staff reseat them elsewhere and give you the entire row of seats to yourself.

You'll have to PM me for the info, though.

You could probably figure out a schedule involving the international dateline that allows you to erase lesbians and gain a day at the same time.

Better just to stay off their straightdar.
