Have you got 21,000 dollars to save?

If you’re a frequent flier of RyanAir you’ll know the following words are not associated with this airline- Caviar on offer round the clock, glasses of champagne, hot showers and relaxing spas. It probably sounds more like a fancy hotel? Well, actually it’s not.

It’s all to do with the experience Vlogger Casey Neistat experienced when he got upgraded from his business class seat to first class on his flight from Dubai to New York with Emirates airlines. He says -’’ one of the greatest days of my life. It really does change your whole relationship with travel, when you take the most painful part of travelling and instead of that being a terrible experience, it goes from pain to pleasurable.’’

Of course lucky Casey didn’t have to fork out the 21,000 dollars that the flight would normally have cost.

You can watch his experience on his Youtube channel

And if you’d like to try your luck and enjoy the same experience as Casey,  here are some tips on how to be upgraded on your next flight. We wish you luck!!

  1. Always smile and be pleasant to all employees at the airline
  2. Be well dressed
  3. Play an emotional card. Let the airlines know you’re travelling on your honeymoon.
  4. If you have a title use it or if you’re a judge, politician or VIP be sure to tell them.

Vocabulary:

  • round the clock- always
  • pleasurable- enjoyable
  • fork out- pay

How enjoyable do you think the experience of flying first class on Emirates would be?
