This will also get you onto the airplane a little bit faster as well, so you might just be able to claim victory in the battle of the overhead bins. You’ll be assigned to board in Group 2 which is the same group as gold and sliver frequent fliers, so that’s not too shabby for a few extra bucks.
We went ahead and started to book a faux flight to see how much this Premier Access would set us back for priority boarding, check-in, and security. For a flight between JFK and LAX it would be $39 for each segment, or $78 for the whole itinerary—so you’re not really saving anything when booking all flights together. It’s definitely up to you to figure out if it’s worth it, but for us—we’re going to pass for now.
