    Hello Everyone!

    I was just curious if any of you were bumped to first class when you travelled b.c you mentioned it was your wedding, or if that is the kind of stuff that only happens in the movies:)

      We booked through Air Canada Vacations and we were automatically bumped up to First Class for both flights. Since we are booking with a large group...they bumped us up. As a bonus both my parents and my brother have upgraded as well (for a fee)! Good luck with it!

            Haha, I think it mostly only happens in the movies. With my luck we'd be like Monica & Chandler; the people ahead of us in line get bumped but we don't!

            Actually we're flying Westjet and I don't even think they have first class!

              We are flying continental from Montreal. I am not holding my breath by any means.. but i thought that since I have never flown first class and cannot afford to upgrade on my own, that maybe I will be lucky enough to have a loving ticketing agent who has a soft spot for brides to be :)

                I read places that it is good to call the airline ahead of time to let them know that you are traveling for your wedding and will need to have your dress hung up. These way they have it in their records and if there is an opportunity to be bumped up your changes are higher. Good Luck

                  I sure hope so. Cause i'm going to let everyone know that's it my wedding and hopefully get a bunch of upgrades.

                    We flew Continental, and this did not happen. Oh well.

                    Also, the first class closet was only 3 feet tall, so I could not hang my dress up. The flight attendant did help me to find an empty over head bin though. I had to fold my dress in half. It was fine when we got to Jamaica.

                      ill cross my fingers but wont hold my breath especially with how airlines charge for every little thing these days! remember the days when you got a hot (not very tasty) meal?
