Interesting...

PDX-LAX-DAL-LGA (and back) prices in at $246 (3.5 cpp for tier, 1.8 for MVPG)

Early start to 2018 Tier?

Out of SEA is $252. All plans involve an ON in LGA though.

save your boarding passes on DAL-LGA as folks have reported a bit of trouble getting automatic postings. I have to imagine that flight can't be a terribly difficult upgrade for MVPG and 75Ks. Of course LAX-DAL isn't upgrade eligible to F.

My friend (75k) and I (MVPG) have been and will be taking this flight 4 times this month. We just had our first run last week and upgrade space was plentiful. No problems upgrading to MCS on virgin and getting first class DAL-LGA. LGA-DAL was a full flight but were able to get premium class. DAL-SEA was wide open on First.

Just a PSA, but be sure to register for double miles:

The DAL-LAX route is eligible.

No. Alaska and Virgin America are not partners with Delta.

"Due to flight schedule changes, manual assistance is required on this reservation. Call Alaska Airlines at 1-800-ALASKAAIR (1-800-252-7522) at your earliest convenience."

I had first noticed the schedule change via the mobile app. I am locked out trying to view the itinerary on Alaskaair.com and had received the above message.

Anyone know what's going on? The only thing I can see is the slight time change for the return flight from LAX to DAL - was 11:10am-4:07pm; now 11:02am-4:08pm.

Travel dates February 2-3, 2018

February 2, 2018:

AS3325: LGA-DAL
VX1885: DAL-LAX

February 3, 2018

VX1874: LAX-DAL
AS3326: DAL-LGA

I got this on both my 1/29-1/30 and 2/12-2/13 bookings. I got an e-mail confirmation about the flight change for my 1/29-1/30 ones about 2 days ago, which made them viewable again in the app/website so I assume the same will happen in a few weeks for the 2/12-2/13.

Like you mentioned, the only change was a flight getting in about 8 minutes earlier.

No email notifications until I called AS to "unlock" reservation. The rep was extremely helpful but double checked with me multiple times I was okay with the time (inbound flight connection at DAL is less than an hour).
