Alaska Airlines offers double frequent flier miles from Seattle

By BA Staff

Alaska Airlines is offering members of its Mileage Plan™ frequent flyer programme, double miles on nonstop flights between Seattle and five Californian cities and Las Vegas, till May 31, 2014.

Alaska customers can earn double miles on all flights between Seattle and Los Angeles, San Francisco, Oakland, San Jose, Santa Rosa and Las Vegas. The double miles will also count toward status in the airline’s MVP and MVP Gold elite-level programs.

Caroline Boren, Alaska Airlines’ managing director of loyalty marketing and customer advocacy said:

“With 62 flights a day between California and Seattle, earning miles and elite status in our award-winning Mileage Plan is easier and faster with Alaska Airlines than any other carrier.”

The threshold for Alaska Airlines’ Mileage Plan members to earn MVP status is only 20,000 miles — 5,000 fewer miles than most other airline frequent flier programs.

Two roundtrip flights between Seattle and Los Angeles would earn enough miles with the double miles offer to qualify for a one-way intra-state award ticket, which requires only 7,500 miles. Double miles are valid on all revenue fare categories on Alaska Airlines

Sample double miles earned: 

Seattle-Los Angeles 1,908 miles roundtrip 3,816 with double miles
Seattle-Las Vegas 1,732 miles roundtrip 3,464 with double miles
Seattle-San Jose 1,392 miles roundtrip 2,784 with double miles
Seattle-San Francisco 1,356 miles roundtrip 2,712 with double miles
Seattle-Oakland 1,342 miles roundtrip 2,684 with double miles
Seattle-Santa Rosa 1,236 miles roundtrip 2,472 with double miles
