Apologize for all the questions. I’m very familiar with USAirways but not so much with AA. When I’m looking at AA flights, I see “Systemwide Upgrade” in the various flight choices I’m looking at. Just to confirm, when I see this, it means that SWU is available instantly and all I have to do is call AA and ask for the SWU? Also, I will have a companion who will be in the same reservation. Will he be instantly upgraded as well even though he’s not EXP?
Thanks. (I will eventually get the hang of AA benefits, process, etc.)
@ John — Yes, at least on two cabin planes. On three cabin planes it’s a bit trickier:
If there’s confirmable upgrade space then you can confirm yourself and/or a non-status passenger.
Let me know if you have any other questions!
