Our member myfavouritescar
is planning on a one-way trip to London later this month. Fortunately (or unfortunately!) our member has recently tasted Premium service courtesy of an Operational Upgrade and is now looking to get the maximum comfort on an Economy class ticket.
I'm hoping to choose (to the best of my ability) the emptiest flight I can to optimise my chances of an empty seat or seats next to me for a poor man's business class. Does anyone have any insight to help me achieve this?
Our members do offer some suggestions, but it is generally agreed that there are no definite patterns. Furthermore
I'd have thought that whatever dates have the lowest prices would have the lightest loads
which kind of defeats the purpose!
In true AFF style, our members do come up with some fairly innovative suggestions for travellers with a champagne taste but on a beer budget.
Why don't you fly Sri Lankan , you will get a J flight for for about the same as a Y in $, also fly to Paris then get the Eurostar to London even cheaper than flying to LHR.
...select either the window or the aisle of one of the 3 sections where a person has already selected a aisle / window. So if a person has already selected the window, select the aisle. Very few people will actively pick the spare middle seat next to you, as such it only really becomes a risk that someone will seat there if the other person is moved or the plane starts filling up.
