Double Miles between ANC - LAX

http://www.alaskaair.com/www2/Promo/...120524_MPReg||

From AlaskaAir: Alaska Airlines is pleased to offer Double Mileage Plan™ Miles on nonstop travel between Anchorage and Los Angeles.

I suppose this is another incentive to do a couple mileage runs to LAX this summer. Obviously they don't count toward EQM's, but it's still a nice bonus. I can't remember if they offered this last summer.

Sounds like a strategy to encourage people to stick with AS's nonstop service to LAX instead of LGB on Jetblue...

B6 must have made a dent in the yields and loads on AS's LAX-ANC flights.

B6 has its own promo of sorts for a free flight...

This is a weak strike back

And yes AS had this promo last year for ANC-DEN/LAX...but it was announced months before the start of the service resumption.

I bet it's no coincidence whatsoever this was announced the same day the B6 resumes LGB-ANC.

works for me, I've used this promo before as I usually make 3 - 4 trips to LA during this timeframe. In fact in comes just in time as I'm headed down on AS 150 late tonight!

Or a pre-emptive strike BEFORE AS saw a dent in the yields and loads!

Lucky for me as I just booked this route a couple days ago

AS has been pretty friendly with the double mile promos as of late, not that I'm complaining...
