When they announced 75k with partners was lowered I knew they would do another AS only eqm promotion. Thanks AS!

A tad OT.

Just some new year's reflection, but I still recall the disappointment I had felt when my beloved hometown Virgin America Airways was taken over by some outfit called Alaska. I suspect, like many in the Bay Area, I was pretty upset and frustrated, and voiced some frustrations on here. While I don't recall who, but someone here on the AS forum made a simple yet, to me, profound statement, "AS is the SPG of airlines."

Whoever that person was, he/she could not have been more right.

I don't think it's a typo, I think it's an extension of the previous no-registration-required promo from this year. Note the years (20-21)

This is a generous promotion from AS for those who need to fly, and I hope people are socially responsible and respect stay-at-home orders (e.g. avoid mileage runs) until the pandemic situation is less critical (e.g. limited ICU capacity).

I do hope this promotion helps stimulates AS' bottom line, even from travelers who would normally book elsewhere, such as AA elites.

If this should be in the dumb newbies flame free thread, my most humble apologies.

How is the 50% bonus calculated for *I* fares?

Example: base mileage is 5000 + 75% for COS = 8750 eqm

Would this promo bonus 2500 eqm or 4375 eqm?

Thanx and Happy, Healthy New Year

The formulation is Base mile x 1.5 x COS
eg : 5000 x 1.5 x1.75 = 5000 x 2.625 = 5000 x 2.63 (AS round up to 2 decimal places) = 13150 EQM

That's funny because I thought for sure it's 2,500. We'll have to wait until one of the experts weighs in.

James???

Not James, but I can definitively confirm the bonus eqm applies to base+COS.
