Get the details on all the priority perks that come with your Elevate Status.

We like it when you’re out of line.

  • Priority Check-In: Show your Elevate Silver or Elevate Gold Card at any Virgin America ticket counter to check in from the First Class lane.
  • Check bags free at the airport or when you check in online:
    • 1 Free checked bag for Elevate Silver members
    • 3 Free checked bags for Elevate Gold members
  • Priority Security: Flash your card or boarding pass to breeze through the Priority Security line and keep moving.
  • Priority Boarding: We don’t like to keep you waiting. That’s why you’ll always be among the first to board every Virgin America flight. Check your boarding pass for your priority boarding group.
  • Priority Baggage Handling: When you check your luggage, we’ll mark your bags with Priority tags so they’ll be among the first off the belt at your destination.
  • Virgin America Loft Access: Your Elevate Silver or Elevate Gold status gets you complimentary day passes to our official airport lounge at LAX, where you can refresh, unwind, get some work done, grab a snack, or just sit back and relax. To enter the Loft, just show your Elevate Gold or Elevate Silver membership Card or Digital ID plus a valid Virgin America boarding pass, and we'll keep track of how many annual day passes you have left. Plus, you'll receive a discount off the published fee for purchasing any additional passes once you've used up your annual allocation:
    • Elevate Silver: 2 Complimentary day passes per year; $25 per person thereafter
    • Elevate Gold: 3 Complimentary day passes per year; $20 per person thereafter
  • Each pass is good for a one person, one time access to the Lounge. Complimentary access passes are non-transferable and may be used either by the Member, or by a guest accompanying the Member. Additional Discounted passes may be purchased by the Member directly at the Loft on the day of travel, for themselves and any accompanying guests holding a valid Virgin America boarding pass.

Take the good seats.

  • Opt in for free upgrades to Main Cabin Select when there’s space available.
    • If you’re flying solo, you’ll have the chance to opt in for an upgrade while you book your flight online, through an authorized travel agent, or when booking through the Virgin America Call Center, and we’ll update your flight status with your new cabin (if available) up to two hours before departure.
    • If you’re traveling with companions, you can opt in to upgrade your seat by calling your exclusive Elevate Silver or Elevate Gold reservations line.
    • Since the upgrades are automatic, we can’t guarantee availability of any previously selected Main Cabin seats once you’ve been assigned a spot in Main Cabin Select.
    • If you’re upgraded to Main Cabin Select when you have already checked in for your flight, you’ll need to check in again online or at the airport to select your new seat in Main Cabin Select.
  • Take your pick of First Class seats by purchasing First Class upgrades in advance for you and your plus one. You can purchase advance First Class upgrades online, through our Call Center, or when you check in at the airport if there are seats available.
    • Buy upgrades up to 12 hours before departure for Elevate Silver members.
    • Buy upgrades up to 24 hours before departure for Elevate Gold members.
  • Select a seat in Express free of charge at the time of booking.
    • Get a guaranteed spot in the front of our Main Cabin and be on your way right after touchdown.
    • Make sure to select a Express seat when choosing your seat assignment online or through our Call Center.

Get more of a good thing.

  • Earn bonus reward points for every Virgin America flight you purchase.
    • 25% more points for Elevate Silver
      For example: As an Elevate Silver Member, if you book a flight for a $100 base fare:
      $100 X 5 points per $1 spent = 500 Elevate points
      Your Elevate Silver Status gets you 25% more reward points:
      $100 x 1.25 = 125 Elevate bonus points + 500 Elevate points = 625 Total Elevate points
    • 100% more points for Elevate Gold
      For example: As an Elevate Gold Member, if you book a flight for a $100 base fare:
      $100 X 5 points per $1 spent = 500 Elevate points
      Your Elevate Gold Status gets you 100% more reward points:
      $100 x 5 = 500 Elevate bonus points + 500 Elevate points = 1,000 Total Elevate points
  • Please note: Your Elevate Silver 25% bonus reward points or Elevate Gold 100% bonus reward points don’t apply to other Elevate transactions, like flights booked on other airlines, purchases with our partners, or Elevate point transfers.
