Alternate-but-convenient routes can yield you a premium class seat for little more than the class below on the conventional route. A to B might cost $4k in Business while A to X (when X is a short hop to B) might cost you a third of that. A little more than coach, oftentimes. Our truffle hounds make a career of finding these “hopportunities” for members who are happy to think outside the straight line if it means bargain First or Business and, to boot, a great stopover. Hopportunities occur with both hidden destinations and departures. If you are flexible, why fly the high-fare gouge route and pay double?

  • Anomaly Fares

    Yes, Business and First Class Fares at a third to a fifth of competing fares can be found. And they are, many times a week, by our 24/7 research team. Anomaly fares look like mistake fares but FCF never alerts you to mistake fares. Anomaly Fares are a natural consequence of Yield Management, Hub Dominance and Loyalty Programs in a de-regulated industry. They are never promoted by airlines because they would undermine credibility with regular high-yield customers.

  • Buy-Miles Strategy

    Buying miles to fly in style is a classic, well-used FCF member strategy. Buying miles and then applying those miles—in place of a cash transaction—is not quite as effortless as throwing thousands of dollars in the trash can. But it’s far more uplifting. Much exists in FCF’s searchable archives on the step-by-step process, just as much is to be found when you filter your alerts so you can easily Buy Miles to Fly in Style.

  • Discount Upgrades

    Do airlines really dump First Class for little more than Business—and Business for little more than coach? Well, yes they do.  At times, when it suits their revenue management strategy. So, when First is pretty much at parity with Business why would anyone fly Business? Because that’s what they think to book, automatically, without knowing these dramatically discounted upgrades exist. FCF researcher seek to break members of the costly habit of booking the class they assume to be the most affordable by breaking the news of these discounted, flat-fee upgrades at time of booking whenever they find them. On whatever routes and airlines. In Business and in First.

  • Sweet Redeems

    Most think hens’ teeth when they think award seats. FCF members know better. Business and First Class award seats found nowhere else are the kind of alerts you can expect several times a week. This intelligence, combined with regular availability reports in each FCF Monthly Advisor, can turn you from award seat skeptic to a true believer of FCF’s use-miles-to-fly-in-style strategies.
