Main Cabin Extra

A Little Extra Makes All the Difference

When does a little extra make a big difference? When it's a little extra legroom. A little extra time to board. A little extra head start when you land.

With Main Cabin Extra you get a seat towards the front of the Main Cabin with up to six inches of additional legroom to stretch out and relax. You also receive Group 1 boarding which gives you plenty of time to get on the plane, stow your luggage and get settled with prices starting at $20.

Now, we're pleased to announce that nearly all of our planes offer Main Cabin Extra seating, including:
  • 777-300
  • 767-300
  • 757
  • A319
  • 737
  • MD-80
  • E-175
  • A321T
