Chances of upgrading to business class on BA?

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are flying to India on British Airways from PHL, with a stopover in London. Neither of us have flown BA before so we have no miles (but did sign up for their frequent flyer program). My husband's company paid for his ticket in business class. Since I'm just coming along as vacation we had to pay for my ticket, and definitely could not afford a business class seat to India ... so it looks like I'll be in coach by myself.

I've never tried to upgrade before. After reading a few articles online it seems like you are supposed to ask at the counter @ your gate, make sure you're dressed nicely, be polite, etc. My question: does this ever work?? If so, would they make you pay?

My husband said if I can't get upgraded we could switch seats every so often, but I don't even know if that would be allowed.

Thanks!
