Business Class Seat Bonus


Recommended Posts

I travel business class London to Pattaya twice a year.

Well it seems i have been upgraded in Etihad membership.

In reading my new entitlements, i am guaranteed a seat on a fully booked flight? 

Nice extra to have, but i don't see how they can make that promise?

They’ll make you pay the full Biz fare and kick someone off who’s paid a lower special biz fare.

Nearly all airlines offer this to top tier FF's


As above the rub is you have to be paying the full up max published price for the seat


In the rarest of rare occasions that this is bought into play the lowest value passenger gets bumped to provide the seat

Most airlines overbook flights because there is a certain percentage of no-shows: either because people change their minds, get sick, miss connections or whatever. So for many flights, the number of seats sold may exceed the actual number of seats on the plane. Usually this is not a problem; in rare cases there are more passengers than seats, and then the airline would offer some compensation to volunteers who are willing to take a later flight. Only very rarely are passengers offload involuntarily. This is how airlines can guarantee that their frequent flyers can have a seat no matter what.

As far as I remember that assures you an economy class seat and not a business one but Etihad have been changing their conditions so much recently that it may have changed since. Flights are very rarely 100% full.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
