Alaska Airlines is predominantly a west coast airline and as such, we often see it targeting some of its better offers at the California market. The airline's latest offer is no different as it is specifically targeting California-based flyers for a fast track to elite status when they fly select coast-to-coast routes.
Alaska's Mileage Plan program has launched a new mileage sale in which it's offering members the chance to buy miles with a bonus of up to 50% thrown in. Sadly, not only is this no longer one of the best mileage sales that we see Alaska Airlines publish, but there's also at least one further reason why most people should probably be avoiding this sale.
I seem to have been speaking to a lot of Alaska Mileage Plan members recently so just for them, here's a reminder that there's a promotion running that allows flyers to earn double miles on eligible Fiji Airways flights that are credited to the Mileage Plan program.
Alaska Airlines flyers looking to shore up their elite status for next year (or to lock in status for the first time) can now boost their progress thanks to a double elite-qualifying miles promotion that the airline is running through November 10th.
At some point in the past 24 hours, a new message has been uploaded to the Alaska Airlines airlines award chart page and miles & points fans of a nervous disposition are not going to like it. The wording seems innocuous but those of us who have been around this hobby for some time will recognize that something bad may be heading our way.
Alaska Airlines has launched a new mileage sale in which it is offering targeted members bonuses of up to 50% when they purchase a minimum of 30,000 miles. This sale is running through 25 June so while there's no need to hurry, now may be a good time to perform a few award searches to see if miles purchased in this sale could save you money on your next trip.
Alaska Airlines has been a member of the oneworld alliance for almost exactly a year so with that 12 month anniversary approaching, I don't think it's unreasonable for a customer to expect the airline's website to be able to deal with all of the more basic benefits that the oneworld alliance offers. Apparently, however, this is too much to ask.
In the past 24 hours, Alaska Airlines has added another oneworld partner to its Mileage Plan program - Malaysia Airlines - but now that I've seen the levels at which the awards have been set, I can't help but wonder why the airline bothered.
Alaska's Mileage Plan program has been doing its best to take care of its frequent flyers this year. Not only have all Mileage Plan elite statuses been extended through April 2022, but members have also been able to earn 50% bonus elite miles all year long so earning and retaining Mileage Plan elite status hasn't been particularly challenging (for most) this year.
Alaska Airlines has launched a new mileage sale that runs through most of December and which is offering a solid bonus of up to 50%. Ostensibly this is a perfectly good sale, but while I'll provide you with all the details you need about it in the post below, be aware that I think that this is a sale that most people should be avoiding for at least the next 10 days.
