Now I do not fly that much.... so I can live in the back for the couple of flights that I might have in a year....
Where did you see this? I scanned the thread and didn't see anything like this, unless you mean Dallas to Houston, or LOTS more than $69.

Well - if the upgrade to first class is offered cheap, there are some side bennies.

We were recently offered to upgrade the first leg for $69 and I took it because I was concerned about a shortish layover and needing to change terminals.

Well, upgrading just one leg gave us multiple free checked baggage for the whole flight, and group 1 boarding for both legs even though we are in economy for the second leg.

Just kind of a nice side effect of accepting the upgrade offer on one leg.

She also said "shorter flights". Not Europe, I assume.

Yes... but I have not see this cheap first class even on domestic... Europe is just out of this world pricing IMO.... but if I could get a domestic flight for say a 70% increase I probably would do it... especially if like the person who flew from Dallas to Houston checking on two bags which paid for the upgrade...



I was just checking a flight to San Juan that we will be taking in a couple of months.... cheap seats $188... first/business $488....
