US Airways Introduces Free Upgrades for Elites

Beginning March 1, Dividend Miles Preferred members will be able to upgrade to First Class free when traveling in the U.S., Canada, Latin America and the Caribbean — a program currently offered only to its Chairman’s Preferred members.

Preferred members ticketed on full Coach fares (classes Y, B and U) are able to reserve upgrades subject to availability any time before departure. Members traveling on qualifying discount fares can reserve a First-Class seat according to their Preferred level.

Chairman’s Preferred members can request an upgrade on this type of fare at least seven days before departure. A Gold Preferred member can request to reserve the First Class seat three days before departure and a Silver Preferred member can make the request one day prior to departure. As always, any Preferred member can upgrade one traveling companion.
