Have you ever been upgraded when travelling?


Have you ever been upgraded or bumped off a flight? In all my forty years of adult travel which has got more frequent in recent years I have only got bumped off once about twenty years ago and upgraded three times. Admittedly I tend to travel Business Class now so being upgraded to first class is much less likely.

I have been upgraded in hotel rooms frequently but I do strongly object to the upselling of an upgrade at a car hire desk. Surely I would have booked a turbo charged dream machine if (a) I could afford it or (b) I wanted to?

What are your experiences of upgrading or being bumped off?

  1. I was upgraded to Business on a Qatar Airways flight from Doha to Manchester which was nice but that’s all even though I travel regularly. I’ve been upgraded in hotels numerous times, usually because I’ve been a member of their loyalty scheme but not necessarily had the points to merit an upgrade. I’m always thankful for an upgrade but would never expect it.

  2. Never been upgraded whilst flying, in fact never even travelled Business Class. But a few hotel and car hire upgrades usually when they’ve messed something up. always a nice surprise.
