Since Alaska has all but abandoned PDX, I won’t be renewing my Alaska Airlines/Bank of America Visa card. Our planned nonstop to Puerto Vallarta (where shutdown is lifted on 1 May) would now be a 27-hour flight with connection. Now I have to shift all my autopays back over to Fred Meyer MasterCard.

Looks like Alaska is continuing PDX-PVR through 19 May, which was their original seasonal stop date. They have cut off a couple days a week from daily. Start date this fall moved up to 9 October, tentatively.
