They have outright removed TK from the system. Calling won't yield a different result because they can only book what is on the Web site.

For whatever reason, all inventory on TK is blocked. Hope...

If you don't have status, the only other disadvantage is that saver seats are completely non-changeable and non-refundable. Regular fares allow same day change (for a fee) and changes to another date...

I think a passenger terminal at McChord is the most logical thing to do here, although it'd be a complicated negotiation with the US Air Force to get one. It's already a busy military airfield with...

Most people don't live in the middle of the country. Most businesses, and most of the economy, isn't in flyover country. It's mostly farmland, if even that. If you want to go there, fly an airline...

Share buybacks? I hope not. That'd mean that Alaska has no better investments it can make to increase enterprise value than giving the money back to the shareholders.This practice eats the seed corn...

They might get stuck flying to NRT, but Virgin America had 30 A320neo's on order, and these orders transferred to Alaska during the merger. They start showing up next year, so we could see this...

Thinking *way* outside of the box, why not ANC-HND? With the A320neo aircraft on order and due for delivery starting next year, it's achievable!

That's an expensive and out-of-the-way routing for a not-great product. Did the agent check whether Aer Lingus has availability to Dublin with your points? Very cheap flight over to London from there...

Have you considered New Zealand? You can go roundtrip in economy class for 80k per person with a free stopover in Fiji on their partner Fiji Airways. You'd need to leave from LAX, but that's...

It'd take a lot to convince me to give up the Chase Sapphire Reserve. Alaska lounges as a perk is not a credible benefit given the Priority Pass experience. They'll just dust off the sign and put it...

First of all, this is totally wild. I book a *lot* of award tickets and while I've seen all sorts of crazy stuff, I haven't seen this yet!
