I just purchased an Economy class ticket at Icelandair.com. I'd like to upgrade to Saga Premium. What are my options for upgrading?
Bid for an upgrade
On the Class Up page you can check your eligibility for Class Up, but you should also receive an e-mail regarding Class Up if you're eligible.
If you're more than one person travelling and you place a bid for e.g.
$80, you'll be charged
$80 x 2 = $160. If you want to split the booking and only upgrade some tickets you have to split it 10 days before departure.
You'll get a real Saga Premium ticket if you win, having lounge access, unlimited in-flight food and drinks and everything else that comes with Saga Premium.
Subjective thoughts on Class Up
I've used Class Up many times and the calculation I usually do to decide whether or not to place a bid is usually the following:
- Do I require the luxury of first class this flight?
- Will airport-security be crowded?
- Is there an Icelandair lounge at the departing airport?
- Would I buy drinks and food at the airport and during flight?
After asking myself these questions I often do Class Up as it would cost the same as food and drinks - and I enjoy the lounges and the service.
