Airberlin Introduces Auction For Business Class Upgrades

“With this new service, we are offering guests the opportunity to treat themselves to an exclusive flight experience in Business Class on the spur of the moment. Guests can decide how much they are prepared to pay. Then a decision is made among the bids submitted as to who will go onboard in Business Class,” says Jacob Fischer,
