Fly Business Class for the price of Premium Economy and sometimes as low as coach.

Amazing service with real ideas. These are not pie in the sky strategies that are almost unusable, they really work and they can be booked by the 'normal' traveler. Highly recommend this service as it pays for itself in one trip.

Conniving or Grovelling

None of our strategies involve "dressing up" or begging as a way to upgrade. You'll know you're upgraded the moment you book your ticket.

Biased or Tainted Recommendations

Our model eliminates the need for credit card companies to grease our palms – at the expense to you of excluding the best opportunities. There's no credit card-churning or bank-hustling here.

Risky Tickets

No grey-market tickets or methods that will get you in trouble with the airlines, nor deals on second-tier carriers. You'll only fly on first tier carriers you trust.

Mistake Fares

Airlines sometimes make mistakes, known as "mistake fares." They are often found and corrected, often voiding your ticket or increasing your fare. FCF only analyzes and delivers "anomaly" fares - fares the airlines are aware of but are very hard to find.

Monthly newsletter and daily deals keep me informed.

Always look forward to reading the monthly newsletter. Also look at the Daily Deals frequently. This information has helped me find 'up front' fares several times resulting in savings of thousands of dollars. I have finally kicked the habit of tying myself to one frequent flyer program and look forward to future travel using the carrier with the best value in terms of fares and schedule to my travel destinations.

FCF is unique in the industry - and it works

I have subscribed to FCF for several years now, and in 2019 alone, I was able to make two trips to Europe with such great savings that the savings on just one of the trips I took covered all the years of FCF I have ever paid for! I truly appreciate the mindset that Matthew Bennett projects throughout FCF - it makes sense these days in business travel, leisure travel too. I am grateful for the opportunities that FCF has presented me - it seems unique in the industry, but works for me

FCF is more than worth the price!

I’ve been receiving FCF tips for over 5 years and it has been amazingly helpful in finding good deals in business class. So much so, that I’ve been saved from being in economy seating over 98% of the time, and usually at minimal cost. I’m spoiled and grateful to Matthew Bennett and team for making it possible.

An absolute must for the international traveler

As a subscriber to FCF since its earliest days when I was a mid-level executive in the international division of a large multi-national, and as I moved up the corporate ladder, seldom a month went by that I did not find something in the monthly bulletins that enabled me to "move up front". 5 million miles later, and now retired, I still find that my subscription pays for itself as I explore the world on my own time, and money!

I use FCF as inspiration

I use FCF as inspiration. The article I just read had me shaking my head - why haven't I thought of that.I go to Hawaii nearly every year. I love it. But, for less cost, I could have gone to Bali. This is why I need this subscription.
