US Airways announced today that with travel beginning March 1, 2004, all
of its Dividend Miles Preferred members will be able to upgrade to First
Class free when traveling in the U.S., Canada, Latin America and the
Caribbean, which is a program currently offered only to its Chairman`s
Preferred members ticketed on full Coach fares (classes Y, B, and U) are
able to reserve upgrades subject to availability any time before
departure. Members traveling on qualifying discount fares can reserve a
First Class seat according to their Preferred level. Chairman`s Preferred
members can request an upgrade on this type of fare at least seven days
before departure. A Gold Preferred member can request to reserve the First
Class seat three days before departure and a Silver Preferred member can
make the request one day prior to departure. As always, any Preferred
member can upgrade one traveling companion.
Full information on these changes, as well as other Dividend Miles Program
terms and conditions, is available online at usairways.com. Members also
can sign up for E-statements and they will receive new information via
E-mail, in addition to earning 1,000 bonus Dividend Miles for signing up.
US Airways is the nation`s seventh-largest airline, serving nearly 200
communities in the U.S., Canada, Europe, the Caribbean and Latin America.
