Did you get upgraded to First Class???

Recommended Posts

I am just curious, I have heard a lot of rumors that brides who travel with their gown frequently get bumped up to first class. Has anyone had this experience? What airline did you fly? We are flying Delta to Cancun for our wedding in Tulum and obviously I will be bringing my dress with me on board. Any guesses what the chances are of getting bumped (especially with the swine flu paranoia)?

They won't just cause you have a dress. Some are nice and if room is avail the agent may bump you for your wedding. Chances are probably pretty high w/ swine flu. Our original flights were just cancelled by delta today for our wedding due to know one traveling because of swine flu. We're leaving August 4th!!!! So now we're rebooked for a red eye to atlanta and getting there a day later. I'm about to call and request an upgrade because we have had our flights changed 3 times because our previously flights were cancelled and now I have to fly over night w/ a 1 yr old and a pregnant woman and I think we deserve to sleep in an upgraded seat and not coach!

I'm sure brides are second in line after the Premier flyers who fly the airline a lot - I'm just guessing this but that would make sense.

My friend got married in Mexico in December and she got bumped up to first class. She flew mexicana airlines. She told them she had her dress and they put her in first class, free of charge. I am not sure how often they do this. It sure would be nice if I can get that on air jamaica, but I'm not holding my breath.

Frontier doesn't have first class! Haha! So nope, no upgrade for me! :) But they are also the only carrier I know of that has not canceled flights b/c of the Swine Flu...so there are other perks. :) So I will be keeping my fingers crossed they don't cancel any! flypig.gif

DH and I were bumped up to first class on the way down to Mexico only...not on the way back to Canada from Mexico (total bummer but oh well!). The reason we were upgraded to first class was because there was extra room in first class and they tried to sell the tickets first and had no luck, so they upgraded us for free. It was an awesome experience but I'm not sure it's worth the extra couple of hundred dollars per ticket. I hope this helps!

Sorry I didn't clarify more before (i'm all rowled up over my flights) I used to work for Delta and United. Technically they have to give seats to elite members using their miles and if theres extra room they go to the waitlist. But when you get to the airport feel out the agent. I know if I was having a good day or a really nice couple came up and were sweet and what not I upgraded them right there. So its really touch and go! I think Kathy is right its not worth the money on flights like these. We've only purchased them on 15 hr flights to Oz, or tokyo, thailand and africa. I think they're really only worth it on long flights

Jac - I totally agree, first class would be a must on a long flight but not necessary on shorter flights...the extra leg room was nice though! haha wink.gif

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
