New Discount Airfare Category Revolutionizes Coach, Business, And First Class Travel

MONTEREY, Calif., Dec. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Tuesday, the premium online newsletter dedicated to exposing the art of discount business class and first class airfares and upgrading for the last 16 years, revealed a new business class and first class "airfare category" that should upend the way hundreds of thousands of travelers currently think about booking flights, whether economy, business class, or first class.

The new EasyUp fare, an economy class ticket with an "automatic upgrade" (for a surcharge, of course), is going to make it much easier for many travelers to get business and first class flights. And much cheaper, too. Often for little more than coach seats in various situations.

The new fares should have a radical effect on the way leisure and business travelers think about loyalty program awards, and the cost of loyalty, even though the new fares require a 60-day advance purchase and 10-day minimum stay.

See the special report's  free "upgrade mindset" video highlighting the implications of the new EasyUp fare category on YouTube here:

Business class fares start at $1,222 round-trip including all taxes and fees on Delta Air Lines for New York to Dublin, for example, and generally range from 50% to 70%+ off traditional premium fares.

EasyUp Fare Departure CitiesThey include Baltimore, Boston, Charlotte, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Detroit, Houston, Kansas City, Los Angeles, New York, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Portland, San Diego, San Jose, San Francisco, Seattle, Washington and many smaller markets. In fact, EasyUp fares were discovered on over 80% of the hundreds of routes Mr. Bennett analyzed.

Introduced without any publicity by Delta Air Lines and largely followed by American Airlines, the fare was discovered by First Class Flyer founder Matthew Bennett (aka Mr. Upgrade), America's leading expert on business class and first class fares over the last 16 years.

In the special report, six bold predictions were made, including one that has United Airlines and US Airways matching many of the new business and first class fares, eventually.
