Alaska and Delta say Buh-Bye on April 30, 2017
Alaska had all sorts of good news lately, but Alaska and Delta dissolving their partnership saddens me. I visit my family quite often in Indianapolis where AA and Delta consistently offer the best deals. Nowwwwwwwww – in order to earn Alaska EQMs I’ll have to make sure to fly AA. Although, I doubt I’ll do many domestic AA flights that aren’t credited to American as their earn rates on Alaska are horrendous, but it would have been nice to have the option. Anywho – Alaska and Delta say BUH-BYE on April 30, 2017.
What if you already have flights booked?
All the info you need is right here.
In all honesty, it’s probably a good move for Alaska. Delta gutted their program long ago and Alaska accordingly cut earn rates on Delta flights. I’m a huge fan of the Alaska program and if this means they can keep their mileage based program around longer…I’m all for it.
