- Must be booked in H/Class or higher
How To Qualify For Companion Ticket
- Cardmembers of the Premier Miles & More World MasterCard® get one each year after first purchase and then every year after
Example Pricing For Companion Ticket
As an example, if you consider a coach class ticket in H fare or higher and the pricing comes out to $1,920.20 with taxes and fees. But only the airfare portion of the ticket is covered by the companion ticket. So how much is that? Well, on this ticket the airfare is $616 each way. That’s a total of $1,232 in value assuming you would have purchased an economy class ticket for the second person anyway.
In this case you’d come out ahead if you use the companion ticket net taxes and fees. But it all depends on your circumstances.
