    Can't image there will be many seats to upgrade you to. A lot of people are going to south africa in june....

    The only time this happened to me was on the return flight from New York with Virgin.
    The reason for this is that I had my appendix out whilst on Hoilday on My 40th birthday lol
    I didn't forget that birthday in a hurry.
    When we got to airport on our return they had already reserved us 2 x 1st class seats.
    Was very nice i must admit

    There is no great trick to gaining a free upgrade although if I fly with some of the oriental/asian carriers, I get a free upgrade when they spot the Prof before my name if they have space.

    Oh right, i never knew...any particular reason? :whistling::thumbsup:

    Only ever been upgraded once. Schiphol to Birmingham. 35mins in business class! woow

    You have more chance of the flight being over booked and not getting on at all then being upgraded.

    been upgraded loads of times, but then my dad does work for Virgin

    The only way you might get upgraded is if they have oversold on economy seats but not on prem and 1st class and everyone turns up for the flight .
