    I once stood in Business talking with another Business passenger - when told to sit down by the FA - so I did - in Business holding an economy ticket.

    No comment was made to me either during or after the flight - I passed on food so that may have helped :?:

    Anyone else?? :twisted:

    No - I've never tried to steal a seat in a "higher" cabin if travelling in Y. It's just not the right thing to do.

    Me too.

    I have sometimes been offered a new seat onboard but it has always been specifically referenced "Please come up to seat nX ..."

    If you're already in the best cabin it hardly matters does it?

    I still choose 3-class flighst on the hope of being asked to move forward, but alas I must not have the right look for that invitation.

    I had a free upgrade to first class for 1 hour on a flight SYD-BKK once. :D My friend invited me to keep his seat warm while he was sampling the scotch and chatting up the FA.

    I was asked to leave after about 1 hour as the other first class passengers complained that I was too excited and they were trying to sleep.

    I thought the whole idea of flying first class was for the added pleasure. Why spend all that money or points on first class seat only to fall asleep. :?

    JohnK - if you're in F SYD-BKK-LHR-xxx then I hope you don't try to stay up the whole way to get the "added pleasure".

    Hmmm where have I heard that phrase before :?:
