I was off one day in my head..I thought this offer expired on Sunday at midnight, not Saturday midnight. I missed this offer, oh well.

With the help of QJ, my division placed 3rd - Results were calculated as Total Revenue/Number of employees in the division.

On an individual level, my personal goal for QJ was to drive more total revenue than at least one other division.

It ended up ahead of 5 other divisions

Thanks again to everyone who supported and promoted the offer as a whole.

I used QUEENJEAN for about 3K worth of trips, but I really struggled with it, because MEATBALL is just a fantastic coupon code.

MEATBALL was definitely my second-favorite code

I don't know...I still wish one of the divisions would have picked either COOKIEMONSTER or my personal favorite, PDXPREMIER.

Booked a total of five tickets between HNL and SEA/PDX for myself and family, all in first, at an average cost of $650. Not bad. Yeah, I could have booked in back and probably gotten upgraded on some of them, but I haven't yet exhausted my wallet funds, I'll have a shot at making 75K, and I don't mind sending AS a little extra revenue to lock in the front of the bus, especially at those prices.

Isn't Celebrity Status ineligible? That would have disadvantaged the other divisions. Perhaps the prowess of Flyer Talk warmed cookie aficionados in maximizing value resulted in the penultimate outcome. Now, MEATBALL is a meatier, saliva gland and dopamine inducing code that might have faired better in approaching the Pinnacle.

Wow, $117 in F for a transcon flight is absolutely amazing! The best price I could find for a transcon in F was ~ $170-180. Oh well, I'll try harder next time.

Inflight was first in total revenue generated and Labor was first in revenue per employee (which was total revenue / by number of employees in department). Inflight is (I'm pretty sure) the second largest department at Alaska so a large number was expected but it was pretty substantial. Labor is a pretty small department so their contributions were pretty significant - they were significantly higher per employee than any other department. As I mentioned before, it was a light hearted competition - we all want our company to not only survive but also to thrive - so it was never about "the prize", rather a desire to make sure we all continue to have great jobs at a great company that we really do love. The "prize", in case anyone was interested, turns out to be a "virtual" celebratory event. I have no idea what that means. Congrats to Missy for generating substantial revenue for a single employee - I'm pretty sure, if that were a category, she would be the clear winner by a long shot.

MOST OF ALL - THANK YOU TO ALL OF YOU that also want to see us thrive and do well and helped us out by betting on the future and buying some tickets. When times are better I propose a "doo" so we can meet up and cheers to all of us!

I booked 10 trips with the F and F sale. Glad to see many were able to reap the benefits of our “shopping spree”. It is nice to have some travel on the books and looking forward to being in the air again.

I'm surprised no one suggested LIEFLATDREAMER.
