Premier members enjoy not only the best economy seating with Economy Plus, but also many opportunities to upgrade to the front cabin. Learn more about upgrades.

*Complimentary Economy Plus access is determined by the highest Premier status of the travelers on the reservation. Complimentary Economy Plus seating for travelers on award tickets that are issued or re-issued on or after April 15, 2015, is based on the traveler's status at booking for Premier Gold and above or at time of check-in for Premier Silver, rather than the status of the member whose miles were used to purchase the award ticket.
