Every issue covers these topics and more:

How to buy Business and First Class Fares for the same price as economy Time it right and you can get Business Class to Europe for $900 round-trip; Asia for $1,500; and Grand Cayman for $450. With a little effort, and the strategies you'll discover in every issue, you’ll seldom sit next to anyone who paid less than you did.
The latest fare wars Most people believe fare wars only benefit economy class travelers. Wrong. Our analysts probe deep within the airlines pricing schemes – and report back to you with timely fare alerts when new fares break...
How to use your miles to get Business Class for the price of coach Two airlines charge 60,000 miles for travel to Europe—one of them for a Business Class seat, the other for an economy class seat. Why pay more when you don’t have to? Get practical know-how every month on the best ways to use your frequent flyer miles.
Ever have trouble finding available seats? Our mission is simply this: solutions, any way possible (all legal though), to land you up front for much less money, in much greater comfort. We consistently discover new routes with wide-open availability.
Seat discrepancies are more common than ever The same airline flies two different aircraft, on the same route, each with a different size seat. Do they tell you which one is wider or reclines further? No. First Class Flyer does exhaustive research to uncover which inferior seats to avoid. You’ll be sitting pretty, knowing you booked the best seats and value for your money.

Customer satisfaction is my satisfaction – what keeps me on my quirky quest of digging for heteroclites. These anomalous gems, discovered typically in the fine print, can enable strategies that ensure discounted upgrades – discounted, occasionally, all the way down to free.

I seek to be America’s—nay the world’s—best advocate for Business and First Class air travelers.

See you up front,
