Companion Pass

My companion will not know if he can travel with me until about 2 or 3 days before my flight.  What is the latest you can add your companion pass member to your flight?

You can add your companion up until 1 hour before flight departure as long as seats are still available


The best advice I can give you is to book the companion ticket now and if the companion can't go you can cancel the ticket for free and request a refund (as long as you haven't made any flight changes since booking the companion ticket). By booking now it will guarantee a seat for the companion if he is able to go. If you book and need to change flights later on I would cancel request a refund then rebook because if you just change the flight the security fees become non refundable.


If you have any further questions let me know!
