  1. Upgrade from Economy class

There is no guarantee you can be upgraded from Economy class to Business class. But there are few lucky individuals that get free upgrades on their flights. Some instances where you can get free upgrades; Economy class is already full and oversold, so they bump last few passengers to check in to a higher class cabin. This is a rare occurrence but do happens on a high traffic flight such as Singapore to New York, London to New York.
