Alaska Airlines Preferred Plus

What’s the scoop with Alaska Airlines Preferred Plus seating?

Alaska Airlines Preferred Plus seating is now available!

Alaska Airlines has announced that starting today, the bulkhead and exit row seats are available to all customers for paid upgrades, once elite Mileage Plan members have had the opportunity to reserve them. You can now buy the upgrades for rows 6, 16 and 17 within 24 hours before check-in.

In addition to the extra legroom (up to eight inches), an upgrade will include a free cocktail or glass of wine or beer, as well as priority boarding. Prices start from just $15, depending on the flight length.

For a flight up to 1,250 miles, it costs $15, which is pretty reasonable considering the free drink and priority boarding! For a flight between 1,251 miles and 2,000 miles it costs $30 and for flights longer than 2,000 miles it costs $50.

Preferred Plus seating is now available on all mainline 737 aircraft and will be available on Embraer E175 jets from July 1st, 2015.

What else do I need to know about Alaska Airlines Preferred Plus seating?

Alaska MVP or American Airlines elite-level AAdvantage members in these seats with complimentary upgrades do not get the free beverage – only customers who have purchased the paid upgrade do.
