FCF Daily Alerts

As an FCF member, you will be alerted almost daily about "the truffles our hounds have just found." Every Daily Alert has a "How you or your travel agency can find and book these short-lived opportunities" link. Topics covered:

  1. Upgrade opportunities paying with money
    No longer will you miss out on $1,100 to $1,800 Business Class published, NON-mistake fares to Europe—round-trip—$2,100 to Africa and Asia, $1,600 to South American and more—on major U.S. and international airlines.
  2. Upgrade opportunities paying with miles
    No longer will you miss out on opportunities when redeeming miles is easy for Business and First Class, a.k.a. ‘Sweet Redeems’—an FCF specialty. American, Delta, and United, sure, but also get notifications when top-tier carriers like Cathay Pacific, Emirates, Etihad, Singapore, and many others release mileage award seats that come and go quickly.

With this actionable intelligence, you fly deluxe for fewer bucks.

FCF Monthly Advisor

Hate flying coach? Hate paying premium? Join the club.

Not the big one, made up of disgruntled flyers who have to choose between all that squandering or simply being squashed.

The exclusive one, where members know that just as extravagance gets you up front, so too does diligence.

Each First Class Flyer Monthly Advisor features timely upgrade opportunities—upportunities—you will find nowhere else in many cases.

 

Connoisseur Platinum

Want access to all of FCF’s best strategies over the years at your fingertips? Are you willing to Buy Miles to Fly in Style (for up to 90% less), use credit cards and partners efficiently, and/or play $1,400-ish international premium tickets like a Stradivarius? If yes, welcome to the club.

Commited Gold

For those with some upgrade experience or are just committed to knowing how to beat the system (not cheat the system) all the way around. You are heavily coach-averse and premium-price-tag averse - both. The Upgrade Mindset — or the “upgrade yourself” mindset — awaits.

Casual Silver

For those who don't have time to pursue upgrade mastery — but don’t want to miss out on the latest low-fare and mileage-availability low-hanging fruit — which can be booked in less time than it takes to book normal airfares or mileage tickets. Quick and easy wins will be yours.
