Question Change Fees post Jan 1 for Tickets Bought with Virgin Premium Card now on Alaska

Like many former Virgin now Alaska customers, I have the Premium Visa Signature Card which includes waived change fees.
Sadly, this card goes away on Jan 1. But, I have bought many tickets already for 2018.
Trying to figure out how change fees for those tickets will be handled post Jan 1?
Will tickets bought with the Premium Card now for travel in 2018 still receive the benefit of waived change fees?
If so, does that mean you could still change them multiple times post Jan 1?
I have called Virgin and Alaska many many times and each time a different answer. Half the time the agent is not even familiar with the benefit and claims all tickets no matter what have change fees.
Does anyone have any insights?
Wish so much that this benefit continued.
  • Fee Waivers: Both cards waive the fee on the first checked bag for you and a companion; at $25 apiece, that can save you up to $100 for every round-trip flight you take on Virgin America. More importantly, the Premium Visa Signature waives the change/cancellation fees on non-refundable tickets, which can be up to $150 per ticket. However, to take advantage of this fee waiver, you have to purchase the ticket directly with Virgin America using your Premium card (so corporate travelers like me are out of luck), and it does not apply to reward ticket cancellations, which are still subject to the $100 Elevate redeposit fee.
