Alaska Airlines has decided to join the airlines that tinker with their award charts without adequately informing its frequent flier program members.
Mileage Plan members will pay more for many premium cabin Alaska Airlines flights come March 1, 2022. You have until February 28 to redeem at the current rates.
You can access Alaska Airlines here.
Award Charts Changing:
Continental US, Alaska & Canada TO/FROM Continental US, Alaska & Canada
Continental US, Alaska & Canada TO/FROM Central America
Continental US, Alaska & Canada TO/FROM Hawaii
Continental US, Alaska & Canada TO/FROM Mexico
These changes are not that “significant,” but it makes you wonder how long it will take Alaska to “adjust” their partner awards when you can fly from the US to Asia in true FIRST class for less than to Mexico in business?
It is also saddening that Alaska has decided not to be upfront about these changes with its elite members and to drop them an email.
