Alaska Airlines launched a subscription-based Flight Pass product this past February (read more here) and has now made them more lucrative by offering elite status to go with.
Subscribers to 12 or 24 trips per year pass get MVP status, and those getting the PRO-version will get MVP Gold through December 31, 2023. The elite tier offer is available for pass purchases through November 30.
You can access this offer on Alaska’s website here.
The MVP or MVP Gold status is rescinded if the flight pass subscription is canceled or payment is declined.

Alaska Airlines Launches Subscription Flight Passes
I guess these passes have not sold as well as initially planned, as Alaska Airlines now tries to sweeten them with an elite status offer.
It is an exciting product for some, but breakage must be high (you don’t end up using all credits). The elite status that comes with the more expensive passes (MVP Gold) is worthwhile and helps to justify the cost.
