Over the 40 years, Cook Travel has been in business, many travelers have asked us how we are able to offer discounts on business and first-class seats…

We don’t use computer algorithms. 

We don’t use flight fare trackers.

We don’t rely on flash sales.

And we don’t use mileage tickets (an illegal trick that can leave you high and dry with denied boarding at the airport unless you pay the day-of difference).

CEO and Cook Travel Owner Blake Fleetwood shared our secrets in an interview with CardRates.com, a credit card and financial news guide serving over 19 million users. CardRates.com has been featured on Forbes, New York Times, CNBC, Yahoo Finance and many more. Read on to learn how we snag such low business-class and first-class prices and more.
