How do I upgrade to first class on Alaska Airlines?

Traveling first class is something everyone wants to do at least once. With so many programs in action, the possibility has gone up the road pretty quickly. You might think you can do it as well.


The airline has mainly three ways to upgrade your seat to first class. These include:


Through Miles: In order to upgrade to first class on Alaska Airlines using the miles option, your ticket must be under a specific category.

You can make sure of this with the use of the filter option during flight search. On the ‘upgrade fare type,’ choose the miles option.

Look out for the ‘U’ next to the flight fare; the flights with upgrade options have these.

Miles will save you from no extra charges when you decide to upgrade.

 

Complimentary Upgrade: The word in itself is self-explanatory. Passengers who are members of mileage plans get numerous perks when it comes to upgrading. As per the idea, when you upgrade your seat to first class, your travel partner will get an upgrade as well. So that will be two seats with the request of one. The airline has further divided this approach into three sections. These are

First Class Upgrades

Guest Upgrade

Premium Class Upgrade

The division works on more rules, and you can find out all about where you stand with the Upgrade to first class on Alaska Airlines through their mileage plan portal.

 

Pay To Upgrade: Passengers are allowed to upgrade their seats at the time of check-in and 24 hours prior to departure. This also depends on the availability and eligibility of a ticket. You can make a request for an upgrade through the web and check-in at the airport counter and kiosk. The payment starts at $25 dollars and can go up based on the distance you are about to fly.

So your choice will impact how much you need to pay. The options are there, and the support team is ever ready to help you.
