If you find yourself saying, “Help me, I’m poor” when browsing first-class flight fares, you’re in luck. In celebration of the 10-year anniversary of the film Bridesmaids, App in the Air is giving a few users the opportunity to win a free upgrade on their next Vegas flight to the ever-coveted first-class.
From April 12 through April 30, the first five people to book a flight to Las Vegas using the app will be eligible to receive a $1,000 upgrade credit. Bookings must be made for travel dates between May 15, 2021, and December 31, 2021, to qualify.
According to App in the Air, “We’ve polled our users multiple times asking, “what is your favorite aviation movie?’… One of the most unique, and our favorite, votes is for Bridesmaids. That iconic plane scene has kept us laughing for a whole decade. The comedy is celebrating its ten-year anniversary this month, and we are celebrating with first-class upgrades to Vegas. Are you ready to partyyyyyy?”
While we certainly wouldn’t classify it as an aviation movie, the film’s scene where Kristen Wiig’s character Annie tries to join the rest of the bachelorette party in first class on the way to Vegas has inspired many memes over the past decade. And according to App in the Air, “Our users shouldn’t have to sneak up to first-class like Annie, we will send you up there in style.”
App in the Air is a travel assistant that makes it easier to book flights and hotels. It’s one of the first apps to enable direct bookings with certain airlines like United, American Airlines, Southwest, and Lufthansa, and the app also customizes itself to the individual traveler. Its technology uses your prior booking habits to consider travel preferences, like stops, times, amenities, rewards programs, and prices.
