Seats in Premium are located in the first three rows of our 737 MAX aircraft and have extra legroom. In some of our aircraft, these seats are equipped with a middle seat blocker that will be phased out as we reconfigured to 2x2 seating across our 737 fleet to further enhance your Premium experience on board.

1Please note: the cargo door on the 737 opens inward and restricts the opening to a maximum of 33 in. (84 cm) in height. Items that exceed this height may need to be turned on their side or angled to fit through the opening. Items (including mobility devices) that that are too large to fit through the opening, cannot be turned on their side, or cannot be angled to fit through the cargo door opening, will not be accepted.
