*Please keep in mind that aircraft swaps can occur, meaning the scheduled aircraft at the time of booking may be different than the aircraft type scheduled on the day of travel. We encourage Customers to check aircraft type closer to the scheduled departure date.


**If you are booking in your company’s preferred booking channel, aircraft type may not be displayed during the booking process. If this is the case, please visit and use the Flight Status option to check your flight’s aircraft type.
