In reality, most people flying on those tickets, do not pay for them. Besides upgrades and business travel, the magic word is "miles" in the airlines frequent flyer program, which can be exchanged for upgrades and free flights. There are even options for a first-class round-the-world trip if you belong to those with a well-filled miles-account.

Interesting fact

Even most frequent flyers do not earn most of their miles while flying. The last years, airlines have started to change their frequent flyer programs to a revenue-based model - the more expansive your tickets are, the more miles you get.

The truth is, you can collect thousands of miles for your next first or business class ticket through credit cards, subscriptions or your daily shopping at the supermarket.

Several providers reward their customers with points and miles. Those points can either be swapped directly for free flights and upgrades or transferred to another loyalty program.

Subscriptions

Yes, you can collect valuable miles through newspaper or magazine subscriptions. The amount you can receive in such a way is enormous and might put you into a business class seat instantly.

Bonus & cash-back programs

Some bonus programs you traditionally use when doing your grocery shopping or refuelling your car, allow you to transfer their cash-back points into airline loyalty programs.
