How Sweet is This? Travelers in Bad Seats Get a 'Chocolate Upgrade' in Copenhagen
We’ve all had our share of bad seats when traveling, but now there’s one way to make it a little bit better. Best of all it won’t cost you any money, and the way it works is delicious.
Chocolatier Anthon Berg has teamed up with SeatGuru to create something known as the “Generous Upgrader.” It won’t bump your seat up to first class, but it will give you the next best thing—free chocolate!
Passengers scan their boarding pass at the pink kiosk, which then references the SeatGuru database and "grades" your seat. Good ones are rewarded with a little bit of chocolate, bad seats get a little more, and the truly awful seats get quite a bit of chocolate—including neck pillows and eye masks from Anthon Berg.
The machine has been doing its thing at Copenhagen Airport, but there are plans to bring it to other airports this fall. It sounds like the airport over in Oslo is up next, and after that things might be expanding outside of the region and go worldwide (which we are pulling for!).
Kind of makes you want to book a bad seat on purpose, right?
