Business Class Perks Without the Price

Buck the trend, get some business class perks without the price, yes?

The line for economy seats will destroy your soul. The business class lines to check in your luggage are almost always dead. When the business line has no one, they often feed from the economy lines.

Simply sit back and wait for the business line to be open after the initial rush. Casually stroll to the desk and give them your passport without saying a word, more times than not they will process you and away you go.

Worry not about appearance but persona, I’ve done this dressed like a hobo with a homeless beard.

P.S: This photo was from a flight I took to Addis Ababa from Dubai.

    Yeah I’ve tried this a few times. Only got sent back once. I just play dumb and proceed, and that usually works. Safe travels!
