The Ultimate Mileage Award
A "round-the-world" Business (or First) Class ticket that makes the globe your oyster with up to 8 bucket-list-busting stops around the planet at a shocking price: 10,000 to 55,000 miles LESS THAN American, Delta and United charge for a simple round-trip to Europe or Asia.
Using Miles + Cash
Europe Biz Class For $1,637 R/T + 100,000% Better Availability Than American & United
Let’s assume that you have NO miles with Iberia and NO credit card points to transfer. You can, anyone can, buy 20,000 miles directly from Iberia, which cost 385 Euro (about $411). Add that to the "buy-down" (see image) miles price, $1,030, and add in $196 for award taxes, and you get $1,637.
A First Class Favorite,
Up To 90% Off
Cathay Pacific’s First Class Cabin is a world-class experience. In this Suite Spot report focused on the Suite itself; available routes; mileage costs; current availability; and how to get miles if you don’t have any – that’s where the 90% off comes in – quite spectacular. Just like the Suite.

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.
