Will be flying to Europe in April 2013. Hubby realy wants to fly 1'st class, however I am a little frugel and can't see paying aprox. $5000.00 each.
Have read tips online about asking to upgrade to 1'st class upon check in if available at a big discount (we have done this succesfully on a domestic flight).
Another option is to search for a Z fare although I will be booking as far in advance as possible so I don't expect those fares available at the early booking. But not certain as I've never heard of this until researching today.
My ? is have any of you done this and what was your success rate, and how do I go about it booking online?
Of course I expect no upgrade but would consider us lucky to even have the option for a discounted 1'st class fare.
Thanks for any and all advice.
