Alaska Expands Partnership with American Airlines
Alaska Airlines announced plans Wednesday to expand its relationship with American Airlines.
Effective immediately, members of Alaska’s Mileage Plan frequent flyer program will be able to book award seats and earn miles on nearly 3,000 daily flights departing on or after October 17, the day on which American Airlines plans to complete its ongoing reservations system merger.
The change gives Alaska Airlines customers over 60 new destinations to choose from.
In addition, the two airlines expanded their lounge agreement, which gives Alaska Airlines Board Room members access to all 54 American Airlines Admirals Clubs starting August 15.
Mileage Plan members with MVP, MVP Gold, and MVP Gold 75K status receive access to priority check-in, security, and boarding lanes when flying on American, baggage fee waivers, and complimentary or discounted access to American’s Main Cabin Extra premium economy lite seats, depending on status level.
