Frequently asked question

What is Corsair's « SURCLASSÉ(E) ?» service ?


The "SURCLASSE(E)" service allows you to try to offer yourself an upgrade for the amount of your choice, simply by making an online offer. If you are in Economy Class, you can request an upgrade to Premium or Business Class. If you travel in Premium Class, you can make an offer for Business Class.

On which flights can I be upgraded?

Not all flights and passengers are systematically eligible. When you register online at under "Information and Services"/"Prepare your trip"/"travelling", you will know if you have access to this service. Once access is granted, you can make personalised offers, for example for the outbound flight only and not for the return flight.
If you do not wish to be upgraded on any of your routes, simply move the cursor to the far left to indicate "no bidding" for that flight.
We draw your attention to the importance of selecting the flight concerned by your offer, by correctly placing the scroll cursor. In case of error and if the offer is accepted, you will be required to pay the amount proposed.
The offers are only valid online, with payments exclusively by credit card (Carte Bleue, Visa, MasterCard, Amex).
Please note that flights must be operated by Corsair to be eligible for service.

Which passengers are eligible for the upgrade ?

All passengers may be eligible for the upgrade, provided that all passengers in the file are over 2 years of age.


Please note :

If there are several passengers in the same booking file, the upgrade will be valid for all passengers in the booking file and the amount you specify will be multiplied by the number of passengers in the file.

Example: if you are 4 passengers registered in the same booking file and you wish to bid 300€ to travel in a higher class, the 4 passengers will automatically be taken into account for the upgrade by auction. The total amount of your offer will therefore be 4 x 300€, i.e. a total amount for the file of 1 200€.
If people do not wish to participate in the upgrade offer while one or more other people in the booking file wish to participate, they must contact our Customer Service open every day from 07:00 to 23:00 Paris time on 3917 (0.35 cts /mn, tariff from a fixed phone) before registering online to separate the travel file of the bidder from other passengers.

What is my bid ?

Your offer is the price you are willing to pay, per passenger, in addition to the original ticket price, to be upgraded on the specified flight. A minimum value and a maximum value are defined for each flight. Your bid applies to all passengers on your reservation. If your bid is accepted, all passengers in your reservation will be upgraded.

The banking information must also be verified. It is not possible to pay with several credit cards.

What is the deadline for making an offer ?

You can bid, revise or cancel your offer up to 06 hours before the scheduled departure time of your flight.

When the bid is accepted, you will receive a confirmation email and you will be debited the last amount you indicated during the auction. This email acts as an invoice, for a total amount including all taxes. You may not change, cancel or transfer the accepted offer for an initial flight to another flight. The offer is also non-transferable to a third party. If you decide to modify your flight after acceptance of your offer, you will unfortunately not receive any refund or compensation.
