eUpgrades to Share
Your eUpgrade Travel Companion
You can use your eUpgrade Credits to request an upgrade for yourself as well as for one Travel Companion who is travelling on the same reservation with you.
Your eUpgrade Nominees
As an eligible Air Canada Altitude member, you will be able to share your eUpgrade Credits with other travellers, known as eUpgrade Nominees, even when you are not travelling with them. Your nominees must be Aeroplan members.
The number of eUpgrade Nominees depends on your Air Canada Altitude status.
If you reach a higher Air Canada Altitude status during the year, your list will automatically be updated and you will be able to choose additional nominees, on top of those you had previously selected. Additionally, note that an Aeroplan Member, regardless of their Air Canada Altitude status, can only be identified as an eUpgrade Nominee by one Air Canada Altitude member.
Selecting your eUpgrade NomineesTo select your Nominees, simply:
You will be asked to provide your Nominees' name and Aeroplan Number. This information will be used to authenticate them as eligible nominees when you request an upgrade for them.
Once you have completed your list of eUpgrade Nominees, you will not be able to change it. However, you will be able to deactivate a nominee if you no longer wish for them to use your eUpgrade Credits, and reactivate them if you change your mind later. Please note that deactivating an eUpgrade Nominee does not enable you to add an additional nominee.
If an eUpgrade Nominee is not currently an Aeroplan Member, they can visit aeroplan.com to create an account.
Validity of your list of eUpgrade Nominees
eUpgrade Nominee lists are valid through to the end of the benefit year. The 2013 Air Canada Altitude benefit year runs through to 28 February, 2014.
You can request upgrades for the nominees appearing on your list expiring February 28, 2014 until that date (inclusively), regardless of when travel actually takes place, so long as you have valid eUpgrade Credits in your account.Please note that every year, eUpgrade Nominee lists will be valid throughout the benefit year, and will be refreshed on March 1st of every year.
Requesting upgrades for your eUpgrade Nominees
As an eUpgrade account owner, you will always be responsible for requesting an upgrade for your eUpgrade Nominees. The eUpgrade Nominees themselves cannot request upgrades using your eUpgrade Credits.
The eligibility criteria that apply to your Air Canada Altitude status will be the same for your eUpgrade nominee. For instance, if you are a Super Elite 100K member, your eUpgrade Nominee can be upgraded from the same eligible fares and within the same applicable booking window as permitted by your Super Elite 100K status. Note, however, for upgrade clearance from the reservation waitlist and the airport standby list, the nominee’s own Air Canada Altitude status will apply.Make sure you complete your request ahead of your nominee's travel date while remaining within your applicable booking window. We also strongly recommend that you complete the request:
To request an upgrade at the airport for an eUpgrade Nominee, you as the account holder will need to be present at time of check-in.Related topics:
