With Platinum status, comfort is complimentary

Main Cabin Extra

More room to relax

Stretch out with more space and more comfort with complimentary access to Main Cabin Extra seats. If Main Cabin Extra isn’t available, you have access to Preferred seats reserved exclusively for loyal flyers such as yourself.

Premium cabin upgrades

A higher priority

Platinum gives you priority over Gold members for upgrades to the premium cabin where more room, dining options and other comforts come standard. With Platinum status, you’ll receive complimentary upgrades when traveling on flights 500 miles or less within North America, as early as 48 hours before the flight, when available.

And, the more you fly, the more 500-mile upgrades you earn – you can use these to upgrade on flights greater than 500 miles in length.

Earn more award miles

When you earn 8 award miles per U.S. dollar spent, every flight can lead to more extraordinary adventures.

Two free checked bags
plus priority handling

Two bags are better than one. Platinum status comes with priority baggage handling, ensuring your bag is among the first to arrive at baggage claim.

Priority lanes

We want to make your time with us as smooth as possible. Use Priority lanes at check-in, security and boarding to get through the airport and settled into your seat faster than you ever have before.

Plane in the sky

Free same-day standby

Travel can be unpredictable — plans change, meetings get moved or maybe you just can’t wait to get home. We get it. If you need to catch a different flight, free same-day standby gives you the ability to fly on your own time, and at no extra charge.
