Will massive Alaska Mileage Plan adjustments be introduced?
In September 2022 we discovered that Alaska Mileage Plan intends to make main award pricing adjustments as of late December 2022. We don’t truly know what these adjustments are, we simply know that one thing is altering. Right here’s how this has been described up till now:
Beginning late December, the best way you view award charts on-line is altering. We’ll have a simplified award chart to indicate you the place award ranges begin primarily based on which areas you’re touring from and to. With this alteration, much like awards on Alaska, associate award ranges might range relying on a number of elements together with route, distance, or demand. You’ll proceed to have the ability to take pleasure in nice worth in your miles.
Whereas I don’t have any inside info, it certain sounds to me like a few of these adjustments is likely to be revealed throughout this occasion. It’s anybody’s guess if Alaska executives go into element on this, or if possibly this may simply be broadly talked about, with particulars within the coming days. Who is aware of, possibly we’ll see greater adjustments to Mileage Plan past simply award prices.
Anyway, that might be my important motivation for tuning in. If others need to tune in as properly and share their ideas, we are able to have a dialogue within the feedback part in the course of the occasion.
This would possibly simply be the final day the place we are able to persuade ourselves that Cathay Pacific top notch awards between the US and Asia with stopovers for 70K miles aren’t going anyplace…
Alaska Airways shall be internet hosting a Flyer Discussion board shortly. It’s anybody’s guess if that is only a common try to have interaction with prospects and recap the place the airline is, or if there shall be detailed details about upcoming adjustments.
Main adjustments are anticipated to be made to Mileage Plan award pricing later this month, so the truth that the dialogue consists of “priceless oneworld advantages” suggests we’d study extra.
Anybody tuning in to the Alaska Airways Flyer Discussion board right now? What are you anticipating?
