Changes to eUpgrade
eligibility and transferability
Beginning March 2014, the way Altitude members share some of their upgrade privileges will change. Additionally, Altitude Super Elite 100K members travelling with an Aeroplan ClassicFlight Reward will no longer be eligible for an eUpgrade.
Effective March 1st, 2014, Altitude Elite 35K, Elite 50K and Elite 75K members will no longer have the option to designate eUpgrade Nominees. This privilege will be replaced by an enhanced Travel Companion benefit.
Altitude Super Elite 100K members will also be entitled to the expanded Travel Companion benefit, and will continue to be able to share their upgrade privilege with two (2) eUpgrade Nominees.
eUpgrade Travel Companions
In 2014, all Altitude members will continue to be able to use their eUpgrade Credits to request an upgrade for themselves as well as for one travel companion travelling on the same reservation. Request this eUpgrade Travel Companion upgrade prior to departure within the eligible booking window at aircanada.com/upgrades, through Air Canada Reservations or with an agent at the airport.
Effective March 28, 2014, the eUpgrade Travel Companion benefit will be expanded and will replace the eUpgrade Nominees benefit for most Altitude members. Rather than identifying a list of specific individuals to be eligible for eUpgrade privileges, all Altitude members will now be able to upgrade one companion of their choosing on the day of departure, as long as they are travelling on the same flight, and even if they are not travelling on the same reservation. Simply request this companionTM upgrade with an agent at the airport at time of check-in.
Altitude Super Elite 100K members will be entitled to the new expanded Travel Companion benefit, in addition to their eUpgrade Nominee privilege.
eUpgrade on Aeroplan ClassicFlight Rewards
As of March 1st, 2014, Aeroplan ClassicFlight Rewards on flights within North America (including Sun destinations) will no longer be eligible for eUpgrades (as per the 2013 Super Elite 100K benefit).
