Changes To AS Mileage Plan

Wed Nov 26, 2014 5:40 pm

Saw an email this morning from AS, they discussed changes to their mileage plan, as well as Delta's changes when applying towards AS.

Higher Class of Service Bonuses When Flying Alaska Airlines

For flights taken on or after January 1, 2015, we have increased the class of service bonuses you receive for First Class, Refundable Coach, and many of our Gold Upgradable fares.

And parking DL miles on AS just became a worse proposition for the cheaper fare classes, but not unexpected:

Delta earning rates as of 1/1/15 for discounted Economy:

Economy H, Q, K - 75% of miles flown
Economy L, U, T, X, V - 50% of miles flown
Economy E - 25% of miles flown

It could have been worse!

This won't have a HUGE effect on MVP Golds & higher, as they will still keep earning their elite bonus and the class of service bonuses are higher.

I've bought a handful of A fares on Delta this year, so it would have been nice to get that extra carrot!!
