A FREQUENT flyer says he's worked out how to land seats on private jets for "free".
Doug Gollan revealed such spots on the luxury flights can cost £1,000s, but he's found a way to get them far cheaper than that.
The expert, who often compares private jets, said he's come across an app that he can nab free seats from whenever he likes.
The catch is flyers have to pay $1,000USD up front for the annual membership – but after that it costs nothing for each flight.
Doug, who is based in America, said he flew for "free" this week from West Palm Beach to Charleston, South Carolina.
He said it was "a flight that would have cost over $12,000".

Doug explained the flights are "free" as they're empty legs – where the private jet has to go from one place to another to pick up passengers, but has no one on board in between.
He said the app he uses is called Vaunt.
The expert added: "You download the app and pay a $1,000 annual membership (so it's not quite free), but then you can fly on its empty legs at no additional cost."
Doug said the flights usually pop up two days in advance, but sometimes there is more notice.

One flight attendant recently revealed the cheap way passengers can increase their chances of getting an upgrade.
Being taken from economy into the luxury of business or first class is every person's dream when boarding a flight, but it's something that happens very rarely.
However, there are ways that people can endear themselves to their cabin crew and increase the likelihood of them being moved up into a better seat near the front of the plane.
Tiktoker and cabin crew member Cierra Mistt (@cierra_mistt) claims that she is always willing to go the extra mile for passengers who do one thing for her.
