If you're just in it for the miles and companion cert, and nothing else, then I suppose the Signature Card may be worth it.

However, I would rather get a root canal without any novocaine than deal...

I've had reasonable luck (~50%) on the 3:20PM flight to EWR; -0%- on the morning. Took the route many times in 2012.

I've also found that SEA-DCA is dependent on the days you travel. Forget about...

Just because some of you decide to keep the card doesn't mean you're showing much loyalty to AS. My understanding (and happy to be corrected by someone more in the know) is the major upside of this...

At ~110K so far...only additional thing the extra flying has got me is an extra 2" on my waistline and tight quads.

ANC RED-EYE...I hear you, and I realize that because I can charge business expenses on my personal card that I may not be a typical traveller.

$175? Not to sound disrespectful, but big deal. Based on annual charges, would be much better to get 1% cash back card and put a portion of that towards a companion fare.

I have better odds of being able to use 25K miles for a one-way F ticket to Orlando before Thanksgiving than in getting excellent customer service from BoA.

In fact, I have better odds of getting...

On flight from SEA-->SNA...flight attendant just announced companion ticket good for FC. I guess Alaska is slow on getting the word out to the crew.

Maybe they should go the way of RyanAir a few years back and charge for bathroom use...could even issue collectible Eskimo Tokens that cost $1 each.
