Alaska Airlines elite status guide
Mileage Plan gets you to elite status faster than other airline loyalty programs, so you'll be an MVP before you know it. Mileage Plan elites enjoy additional benefits with Alaska Airlines, OneWorld Alliance, and its Global Partners.
Alaska Airlines is the only major legacy carrier that issues elite-qualifying and redeemable miles based on how far you fly rather than how much you spend.
Upgrades start clearing 48 hours before departure. Preferred seats may include aisle seats, those in emergency exit rows or those located close to the front of the aircraft. Note that this isn't available on the carrier's Saver fares.
When traveling on an Alaska-operated flight, you’ll earn Alaska miles based on the distance you fly. All flights including basic economy product, earn a minimum of 100% of the miles flown. Tickets booked into higher fare classes earn bonus miles. Additionally, those with Alaska Airlines elite status will earn additional bonuses on Alaska-operated tickets.
Despite being one of the smaller airlines in the U.S., Alaska Airlines has become a favorite of many travelers. This is partially due to its loyalty program, Mileage Plan. Further, it’s one of the few airlines that still awards miles based on physical miles flown.
One of the easiest ways to earn a large chunk of Mileage Plan miles without flying is through the Alaska Airlines credit cards issued by Bank of America. If you have a small business, you might prefer the Alaska Airlines Visa Business card.
Alaska Airlines also has a business rewards program called EasyBiz. This program rewards businesses for employee travel based on the price of a ticket. You can also transfer points from Marriott to Alaska at 3:1 ratio.
