Travel expert Lee Abbamonte teaches Roger Hailes the best ways to get your ticket upgraded to first class. Start by joining a frequent flyer club, and pick one airline and stick to it. Make sure you dress respectable and act respectful when you get to the airport, and look like you belong in business class. Be nice to the gate agent, they are they keyholders to free first class. Upgrades are easiest on Saturdays, and in the off-season, so keep that in mind when planning your travel.
