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?

Got the invite but my flight doesnt land until 30 minutes into the event. I will try to join in late if possible.

Received invite and deleted. No interest in a web based virtual event. If in person than would consider. I have no doubt others will ask all the necessary questions then receive a generic corporate response.

I'll be in person. My question in a nod to anteater was "Is the upgrade processor ever going to get fixed or are we going to continue to pretend it works correctly, followed by using corporate speak to cover up when it fails, which it does on a regular basis."

Not invited. But then, for legal reasons associated with my employer I probably shouldn't be there in the first place.

Got the invite, but when I click on RSVP it just goes to the Alaska site, explaining the event and that I should sign up soon. Am I missing something?

Update - As of this morning the sign-up page came up when I selected RSVP.

Sounds like someone found a 15 year old email concerning the MVPG Luncheons and decided "how can we make that worse."

The early days of the luncheons were really good, with a fair amount of candor and decent QandA. The last one I attended (molti anni fa) was much more "produced" with less useful QandA.

Same issue. Earlier today I had the opportunity to sign up, but I wanted to think of a few questions first so I waited until the evening and now cannot sign up.
