As an FCF member, you will have access to special alerts almost daily about "the upgrade truffles our hounds have just found." Every FCF Alert has instructions on "How you or your travel agent can find and book these short-lived opportunities." The topics we cover:
- Upgrade opportunities paying with cash
No longer will you miss out on $1,100 to $1,800 Business Class published, NON-mistake fares to Europe—round-trip—$2,100 fares to Africa and Asia, $1,600 fares to South American and more—on major U.S. and international airlines.
- 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 hear about top-tier carriers like Cathay Pacific, Emirates, Etihad, Singapore, and many others that release mileage award seats that come and go quickly.
With this actionable intelligence, you fly deluxe for fewer bucks.

Frequently Asked Questions
First Class Flyer is a subscription service that does two main things:
- We help you to upgrade to Business and First Class with smart, honest strategies; and
- We find easy-to-book, heavily discounted anomaly fares (not mistake fares) for novice upgraders, and empower advanced upgraders with information to make the most of airline alliances, credit card programs and sophisticated ticketing strategies.
FCF is aimed at two kinds of people:
- Those who take a big trip once a year and want to do it in Business or First Class.
- Those who fly Business and First Class already, but want to do it for a lot less money, and a lot less time.
Lots. Only one source has focused on premium upgrade strategies for 20 years: First Class Flyer. No other online source comprehensively compares Business and First Class travel taking into account all three major airline “currencies” – cash, miles and points. Our information is holistic, meticulous, comprehensive, and most importantly... trustworthy. Things like chat forums and certain online publications publish false information all the time - just to get attention. You never have to worry about our information being false.
Yes – if you want to spend 100 person hours a day researching! Research that’s made more effective and efficient by the compounded intelligence of 20 years. We leverage what we learned yesterday, today. Why spend hours of your own precious time doing this kind of thing when you can outsource it inexpensively and make up the cost in your first flight? Everything after that is cream on top.
Absolutely not. In fact we flat-out do not recommend you going to the airport without an upgrade already in hand. We arm you with information and strategy, not deceptive or manipulative tactics. They’re demeaning and often embarrassing. As we like to say: “premium seating, cheap without cheating.”
No. And we’re very proud of the fact! If you are trawling sites and blogs for travel deals, beware of disclaimers such as:
…contains references to products from one or more of our advertisers. We may receive compensation when you click on links to those products. Etc. Etc.
You won’t find anything of the sort at First Class Flyer. Unlike some competitors, we don’t accept a cent from airlines, credit cards or anyone else. You can trust the information you get from FCF because we are 100% impartial.
