The DCA-SEA flights are always completely full. Even as a 75K you likely won't be in the front. I fly this route regularly. The waitlist regularly runs very long (30-60 people) and it's common to see nobody upgraded. To stand any chance, you need to be #1 or #2 on the list and generally a very lucky person.

You'll get good value from your 75K status, just don't expect it to be an easy/automatic upgrade on the DC-SEA route.

Yup - unicorn upgrade unless you enjoy flying on Saturday afternoons or book months ahead of time.


Also hard to get these days - BWI-SEA and VV. - I usually try to confirm my return from BWI when I can with a GGU or an upgradable fare, last night, I was 9 of 25 for 0 upgrades on a Thursday. Its usually 30 long on a Friday and Monday ex-Seattle.

how long is status good?

I have United Platinum status that expires December 31, 2017 (flew a ton last year, none this year). Will Alaska match me through 2018 even though I donít have status with United in 2018?

Any suggestions?
Trying to do the same thing. Did you figure it out?

There are several recent blog articles from this year stating the CP still qualifies for status match... I'd like to know because I have the CP through next year.

If you just matched how long is your 75k status good for? I am considering it.

Almost the same for me. I checked the app last night -- nothing. I checked this morning -- nothing. I checked an hour ago -- voila! MVP Gold 75K, good through 12/31/2018. Now I'm off to book some tickets...

Submitted a status match for SW CP 15 days ago. MVP Gold appeared this morning, good through 12/31/2018. I was expecting MVP Gold 75K based on previously research. Thoughts anyone? Thanks for any advice.

Are you also A-list preferred? Just curious if they matched that instead...

Ditto I know someone who tried to match their CP to AS but was told no since they only match statuses earned via flying.
