First Class on Alaska Airlines features their most spacious and comfortable seats, plus quilted blankets on longer flights, a larger tablet for free entertainment and more.
An upgrade will be requested for you once your reservation is ticketed. Keep in mind:
You’ll receive an email when your upgrade is confirmed if you booked your trip with Alaska Airlines. Visit alaskaair.com to reserve your seat in First Class.
If you booked your trip with American or another booking source, you can check the status of your upgrade on alaskaair.com using your Alaska Airlines confirmation code. If your upgrade has been confirmed, you’ll see it there.
Find your Alaska Airlines confirmation code (also known as a record locator) on your booking confirmation email. If you booked your trip through American, you’ll find it when viewing your trip on aa.com or the American app.
If you’re not upgraded right away, Alaska Airlines will keep checking for upgrade availability – up to 1 hour before your flight.
You must check-in at the airport with an Alaska Airlines agent or at a kiosk if your upgrade is confirmed before check-in and Alaska is the operating carrier for the first flight of your trip. You won’t be able to check-in using alaskaair.com or the Alaska Airlines app.
Ask an airport agent to add you to the standby list. This won’t happen automatically. Keep in mind:
Call Alaska Airlines if you don’t want an upgrade.
