All passengers who have purchased an economy or premium economy class ticket will have to make bids for seat upgradation seven days before the scheduled departure of their flight. If their bids happen to be accepted then they will be intimated about the upgraded cabin before the departure of the flight, the company was quoted as saying by PTI.
