Bidding for Upgrades – Premium Cabin and Economy (Plusgrade)

Bidding for Upgrades – Premium Cabin and Economy (Plusgrade)

Currently used by over 60 airlines worldwide, Plusgrade provides technology so that passengers can bid to move to a better class or have that much-prized free seat next to them on a busy flight. After buying their ticket, passengers place their bids for these services online. It’s a win-win for airlines and passengers as airlines generate revenue from otherwise unused services and passengers benefit by improving their travel experience. Integrates seamlessly with Amadeus Altéa.

  • Revenue Optimisation – With Plusgrade, airlines can capitalise on empty seats and increased upgrades, generating significant revenue.
 
  • End-user experience – Through live bidding, passengers are empowered by being able to make an offer for a premium service at a price they are comfortable with – depending on availability.
