AS In-Person (and Online) Flyer Forum with Alaska Airlines Executives

FlyerTalk Forums Expert How-Tos and Guides
Last edit by: dayone
Suggested Questions to Be Asked of AS Executives by In-Person Attendees
  • The Elite Upgrade Processor does not upgrade at the elite windows when upgrade space is available and often process the upgrade list inconsistently when it does run. This has been a problem for well over a year. When will this be fixed?
  • What are the plans for overall network growth (% increase in flights) for 2023 and 2024? Is the focus more flights to existing cities?
  • What are the growth plans for SFO? LAX?
  • What are the plans for Dallas Love Field (currently only one flight daily to SEA and SFO)?
  • Please describe what *if any* plans exist for improving SEA ops in winter weather conditions the chaos that has rippled throughout the entire system for nearly a week after the last four or five wx events many of which actually didnt develop as badly as initially forecast has left a *very* bad impression of all aspects of AS operations and management
  • Going forward, will AS allow mixing partner award flights? Like SEA-LHR on BA, then LHR-KUL on MH on a single ticket?
  • Regarding Partner Award availability, are there any plans to make it easier for Seattle-based members to get to major U.S. gateways (e.g., LAX, DFW, ORD). In other words: why is there rarely/never award space at the right level to us get to these gateways?
  • What are the expansion plans for PAE? Are Spokane and Portland possibilities?

What was submitted from Remote participants:
  • How dependent on the network growth plan is the MAX assembly and delivery schedule?
  • What will it take to display "real" EQMs (e.g. No California Bonus) and AS metal segments required for elite tier status in the Alaska App?
  • A round robin question to each executive, non-binding answer of course, what airport would each exec like to see a new Alaska Lounge at?

I, Mr. No Status ever, got an invite, might actually attend. Trying to figure out how they picked who to send an invite to. From the invite, the innovations probably have to do with the electionic bag tag, the automated bag drop, and some form of new check in they have been trialing at Missoula. New additions to the fleet must be about the MAX cause that's the only new plane coming in.

Totally thought this said "Alaska Air Fryer Forum" and was wondering what AS was up to with air fryers.

Nothing here. I guess it makes sense that they wouldn't invite people outside of SEA.

I received and registered. My questions were:
1) can you make it easier to use gold guest upgrades?
2) what are plans to resume service on dropped (SJC-DAL) routes and cut-back routes (SFO-ORD)?
