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 Ö the chaos that has rippled throughout the entire system for nearly a week after the last four or five wx events ó many of which actually didnít develop as badly as initially forecast ó 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 got the invite complete with an address. Honestly I miss the Gold lunches - I think this is some attempt at something like them. Iím also a selected user of the electronic bag tag. Iím very curious to see how it goes.

Only received online forum invite, but did others receive a physical location invite?

Didn't get either.. I wonder if they are excluding people who have had significant customer service issues in the past few months, or something?

Anyone with either of the in-person or online registration links feel like sharing them (privately would be fine if you don't feel like posting)?

*edit* just kidding - gmail search didn't pick it up, but I have the online version in my inbox. as others have reported, no way to actually rsvp though

My husband gets invited to everything but I (female) only get rocks. We have identical status, though he’s probably nicer.

How did they decide who gets the invite? My husband got one, made MVP for the first time. I didn't even though I'm a 100k flyer this year, and 75K for the last three years. Ironically, it doesn't matter anyway because I will be on an Alaska flight the day of the meeting.

Based solely on the dissatisfaction on flyertalk, my money is on it being a subsub system of the upgrade processor.

Fear not, the new one is being installed as you speak. Those with higher status got a sneak preview!

Finally upgrading from the punch card readers. I'm certain now there's good time ahead.

Yes, but methinks you misremembered the last iteration of the processor!
