Virgin Atlantic seat auction - bidding for an upgrade
Bid for an upgrade
Treat yourself to a cabin upgrade in our online auction, Your Bid.
This page tells you how to use Your Bid, our online upgrade auction, to upgrade your cabin on your next flight.
If you're thinking of upgrading to the next cabin, you can make a bid on our online auction for upgrades, called Your Bid. If your bid is accepted, you could very well score yourself a swanky new seat.
To have a go, you'll need to have booked with us direct.
Remember upgrades are subject to availability on your flight. If you don't get the chance to bid, it's still worth checking in My Booking, or asking us at the airport for upgrade options.
How Your Bid works
Enter your booking details below.
Simply tell us how much you’re willing to pay for an upgrade, by making a bid. Bids can be made up to seven days before your flight is due to depart.
If your bid is accepted, congratulations, you've just bagged yourself an upgrade. We’ll send you an email to let you know.
You can make changes to your bid, or cancel it if you change your mind, until two days before your flight is due to depart, as long as it hasn’t already been accepted.
Fancy treating yourself to a little more luxury on your flight, and a little flutter at the same time? Imagine settling in to your Premium or Upper Class seat, stretching out, and enjoying the full five-star treatment all the way to your destination.
If you have a current booking in Economy, why not bid to upgrade to our Premium cabin? You’ll have more space, priority boarding, upgraded dining and lots of extra touches to make your flight even more enjoyable. Make a bid, and give yourself a lovely little treat.
If you’re currently booked in Economy or Premium, you can bid to upgrade to the ultimate in luxury. Fully flat beds, an onboard bar and access to our award-winning Clubhouses are all within reach. Just make that bid, and keep your fingers crossed.
