Here's a Crazy New Way to Get Upgraded Seats On Your Next Flight
Catch him if you can.
Ah, the sweet salvation that is scoring a travel deal. If you're anything like us, the thrill of nabbing super cheap airline tickets, a massively discounted hotel, or even snagging an extra Disney pass half off is tough to beat.
Now, one travel blogger is looking to fill strangers' hearts with that special sense of wanderlust-inspired joy with a challenge dubbed "Catch Me If You Can." Gilbert Ott, who blogs at God Save The Points, has created this fun contest riffing on the popular Leonardo DiCaprio movie from 2002, to help participants score upgraded seats.
In order to win first or business class seats, all you have to do is correctly identify Ott in an airport (it can be anywhere from the boarding gate to security lane or even at the gate) and he will graciously swap his seats with you. The contest will run from now until December. Of course, the one caveat is you must be on the same flight as Ott.

To make it easier, he'll be posting his upcoming travel map on Twitter. Considering he was just a guest on Good Morning America to promote his seat upgrade competition, we're guessing it's going to be quite hard for Mr. Ott to escape from eager travel upgrade seekers. Here's to hoping some lucky travelers receive this lovely perk!
