We know we’re not the only ones who spend every flight staring longingly into the first-class cabin, wishing that’s where we were sitting instead of in the cheap seats. But before you try to sneak your way up there á la Kristen Wiig from Bridesmaids, we suggest you try classing up your coach experience first.
