It is notoriously difficult to get an upgrade in these times of ticket automation, but if you are going to get the edge, try these following suggestions. Who knows? Maybe you will be in the right place at the right time and be offered that golden upgrade to business or even first.

Have a backup activity like a good book or films on your tablet so that your time isn’t ultimately wasted, and pack food and drinks so you are not spending the ticket difference in Starbucks while you are waiting.
