Cabin upgrades

Spend your miles on an upgrade

The number of miles you’ll need to spend to upgrade your ticket* all depends on when you’re planning to travel. Upgrades are not available from Economy Light.

The table below shows the number of miles you’ll need to spend (for a round trip) to upgrade the seat you’ve already purchased, to a seat in our Premium or Upper Class cabin during our standard season.

If you’re planning to travel during our peak season, you’ll need to spend an additional 10,000 miles on top of the miles shown below for a standard season reward upgrade to Premium. If Upper Class is more your style, you’ll need 15,000 more miles to upgrade from Economy Classic or Delight to Upper Class.

Please note: Taxes, fees and carrier imposed surcharges from $273 apply to all upgrade Reward Flights.

*Available on purchased tickets only.
