Beginner’s Guide to Using Low, EasyUp Business Class Fares to Upgrade to First Class

Which airlines are generous when it comes to mileage upgrade awards or system-wide elite upgrades to First from deeply discounted fares? Plus, three other ways to score low First Class fares.

An EasyUp Anomaly Fare is one of the best deals you can get, one we’ve reported on since December 2012 (original report here), and subsequently and frequently on our Daily Alerts page. You can book these fares wickedly-fast. Just follow the instructions in the alert itself to get Business Class deals in the $1,100 to $1,700 range to Europe, typically $3,900 to $5,900; $2,000 to $2,800 range to Asia, typically $3,700 to $6,300; $1,800 to $2,500 range to Southern South American, typically $3,800 to $5,300; and starting at $2,500+ to Southern Africa, typically $6,355+. It can take five minutes or less to book.

(Amazing—considering that IBM surveys suggest that many people spend as much time buying an airline ticket as they do taking the flight.)
