Kelvin spoke to Express.co.uk about how vital it is to “compare the cash difference,” when looking at airlines.
This is key when it comes to weighing up how worth it is to upgrade on that flight in particular.
“You always need to compare the cash difference, against the difference in the various bits the upgrade might get you,” he said.
“Think about the better food, comfort, lounge access, space and priority treatment (for example at check-in, security and at the boarding gate) you might get, and work out if it’s worth it.
“I would attach a far higher value on getting a bed on an overnight flight, than I would on a day time flight when I’m more than happy sat up watching a movie, or having priority access at an airport that is always incredibly busy and queues are normal, that at one where you might glide through even as an economy passenger.”
Kelvin also shared his advice for those hoping to wing it and get an upgrade at the airport.
