Are all Emirates Skywards members allowed to spend their miles on upgrade rewards in any cabin?

Any member from any tier can use their Skywards Miles to upgrade to either Business or First Class. There are three easy ways to do this:

  • Upgrade an existing booking online from Upcoming Travel, Manage a Booking, or at online check-in (up to six hours before departure).
  • Call an Emirates Contact Center (up to six hours before departure).
  • Purchase an instant upgrade reward with Skywards Miles at the airport check-in desk (available to all membership tiers) or on board the aircraft (available to Silver, Gold, and Platinum members), subject to seat availability and applicable upgrade restrictions.*
*Emirates Special tickets can’t be upgraded. Emirates Saver tickets can only be upgraded when you check in online or at the airport. Please review Fare Conditions and applicable restrictions on emirates.com when you book your ticket.
