To bid for an upgrade in Plusgrade, you must have your booking data and follow these steps:  

    1. Enter and go to the Upgrade to Business Class section
    2. Fill in the fields with your booking details
    3. Choose how much you would like to pay for the upgrade for each way of your trip (Bid applies only for the flight you select).
    4. Enter your payment information as per your credit card details. If the upgrade is awarded, the amount of your bid will be charged to your card, otherwise, there will be no charge.

Important information
  • You will not be able to request a refund if your bid was accepted.
  • If you made a bid for an upgrade and it was selected, the system generates a temporary hold on the credit card for the full amount of the bid and you may receive a communication from your bank (SMS, email or other) with that amount. This appears as a "pending" charge on your bank account.
  • On some occasions, due to unforeseen situations, the upgrade cannot be processed. In these cases, the temporary hold is released from the card within 5 to 10 business days. The exact time period varies with each card issuer, the issuer has control over when these amounts will be withdrawn or reversed. In such a situation, the transaction will not be approved, therefore, we will not charge your credit card.
Conditions for getting a refund

The only reasons for which the Business Class upgrade payment will be reimbursed are:

  • Flights canceled by us.
  • Rescheduling: If we reschedule and there is no availability in Business Class to accommodate your upgrade. 
  • Other: A Business Class seat could not be assigned due to situations such as aircraft changes, delays in connecting flights, among other causes.
