Airberlin has become the first German airline willing to offer the chance of an auction for Business Class upgrades on their long-haul flights.

Under the label of the “Airberlin exquisite”, passengers are invited to take up the option of bidding for an upgrade to Business Class, which is open until 72 hours before their flight is due to depart.

Anyone already booked can check into the airline’s website and click on the “airberlin.com/upgrade” link which will allow them to see whether an auction is available for their flight. If that is the case, then they can easily submit their bid thanks to the use of friendly software which airberlin have had installed.

Guests can decide how much they are prepared to pay, with the successful bidder being given an opportunity to enjoy all the comforts of Business Class at a reduced price.

If they have been lucky with their auction bid, the passenger will be informed at least 12 hours prior to departure.

A first-class entertainment system and gourmet meals from the Sansibar restaurant round off the exclusive flight experience.
