Upgrade Tips

Upgrade Tips

  1. Sheel Vora

    Hello I have a question. What advise would you give for getting upgrades on award seats? Does the process work similar to just finding a regular award seat?

    Also, lets assume if there is a mandatory travel required and you would want to secure an economy ticket in advance, what strategy would you use regarding getting an upgrade if available?

    Hi Sheel, it’s not really possible to answer this question without more specifics. Depends on the airline, domestic/international, route, etc.

    But generally speaking if you want to book a premium cabin award ticket, you need to find inventory and you need to have enough miles.
    If you are talking about free upgrades, that’s not something you can ever check on, and is just a matter of getting lucky really, for instance if economy is overbooked (but even then, there is zero way to know who will benefit from the upgrade).
