Dress up while flying and possibly score perks!

These days when you look around the airport you'll notice 99% of the flyers are dressed like they're heading to the gym or like they're heading to a Walmart.  And that's all well and good, BUT, something has been going on lately at airports.  People who dress up really nice are sometimes being offered an upgrade in seating!

(does this guy look better or...)

I was on a flight from Los Angeles to Phoenix and got called to the guests service counter.  At first I thougth they were going to ask me if I was willing to take another flight or something.  Come to find out I was called there due to my suit that I had on (I was going to a business meeting) and the powers-to-be offered me a FREE upgrade to first class based on my outfit.

(...or this woman?)

There were a few extra seats up front and I got one!  So that $350 Hugo Boss suit I bought from the back of a car one day here in Los Angeles seems to be paying off!   I got to researching the 'net and found a few other cases where this has happened.  Does this mean if you wear a suit you'll get a automatic upgrade?   No, but you might!   And you'll look big pimping as you fly either way.
