Buying business and coach tickets

Jump to last reply

This is my preferred routing:
8/31/14: RDM-SLC-CDG-VRN
10/09/14: FLR-AMS-PDX-RDM

I want to purchase business class seats for the long haul portions of the flights.(SLC-CDG, AMS-PDX). The short haul flights typically do not have business class seating. Do any of you know if it is possible to switch classes on the same ticket with fare reduction? Or how to determine if the cost differential is significant enough to mix coach and business class before calling the airlines? Obviously a straight forward coach ticket (avg $1300) is less expensive than a full fare business class (avg $4000).

This is a celebratory trip for us and I was hoping to add a little comfort along the way and reduce stress by paying for business class on the long haul portions.. No, unfortunately, we do not have miles to utilize.

I may consider premium economy but my motivation for business class is the laydown seating for sleeping.

Thanks for any tips to how to make this happen and happy travels.
