    Free Upgrades to Business Class

    Hi,

    I am due to go to Australia this Saturday for 6 weeks. Because i am a techie and cant afford Business Class.

    Does anyone know of the best route to get a free upgrade? I am flying with Singapore Airlines.

    I flew business class. It was awesome. Got an upgrade to 1st class on the leg from Kuala Lumpa to Sydney. In the wee bit upstairs, with my own personal stewardess.

    The Business lounge at KL airport made the 8 hour wait much more bearable.

    I was in a hoody and jeans :P

    Im tempted to fly back to Scotland for the weekend or something just to make use of the return leg business class flight I have.

    Not much help to you though, sorry.

    Talking

    Upgrades on Singapore airlines are as rare as hens teeth!

    Good forum site for SQ is here

    I nearly always fly to Australia to visit family with them as I find the flight timings to Brisbane suit me & their service onboard is excellent. Then their is their hub Changi....! Lets just say you wont be bored or at a loss for something to do while you are in transit for your next flight!

    I tried to get a free upgrade on our honeymoon earlier this year from economy with Virgin. Not a chance. That'll be £300 each. What?! You now have to even pay for 'exit' seats. Grrr.
