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?

Join us for our first-ever in-person Flyer Forum with Alaska Airlines leaders.

Connecting with our loyal Mileage Plan members is important to us. That's why we're creating something new: The Flyer Forum. It's a more personal way for members to interact with Alaska leaders.

At this in-person event hosted by Everett Fitzhugh, broadcaster for the Seattle Kraken, you'll hear company updates from our President and CEO Ben Minicucci and a few of our Alaska leaders. They'll share what's coming in 2023 and beyond including valuable oneworld benefits, new additions to our fleet, and innovations to improve your experience with us. Then, we'll finish with a Q&A session moderated by Everett.

After the presentation, you're invited to join us for a happy hour with drinks and snacks. Best of all, attendees have the chance to win prizes like roundtrip flights, miles and more!

Space is limited, so claim your ticket on a first-come, first-served basis by November 21.
