Upgrade Bid

Just got an email..

We are pleased to introduce a new bidding system that puts some of our premium seats up for auction.

Starting today, 17 July 2017, customers who have purchased Premium Economy or Economy Class tickets on selected routes have the opportunity to upgrade to the next cabin class via Upgrade Bid.

How it works
You can check your flight's eligibility on the Upgrade Bid welcome page by entering your booking reference number and family name. If your flight is eligible, you can enter the auction and place your bid for a flight at least 50 hours before its departure.

Alternatively, if you have opted to receive offers from Cathay Pacific,4 and your flight and fare class are eligible, you will receive an email seven days before the first sector of your booking inviting you to make an Upgrade Bid.

If your offer is successful, you'll receive an email confirming your upgrade 48 hours before your departure.

The benefit of club membership
Because you're a Marco Polo Club member, your bid will carry additional weight, which will increase your chances of securing an upgraded seat.

Things to note
Only certain flights, based on route and seat availability, are eligible for Upgrade Bid. Additional routes will be introduced in the coming months.
Lounge access and check-in and boarding priorities will be based on the upgraded cabin.
Club points and Asia Miles earned and baggage allowance will be based on the original fare class.
Bookable Upgrades and redemptions will not be affected, as they will be confirmed beforehand.
Other special upgrades will be protected and will continue to be awarded.
