Alaska Airlines has launched new promotion for those flying on British Airways and being Alaska Elites or crediting their flights to MileagePlan from Apri 1 to September 30, 2016.
MileagePlan members can earn double awards miles on British Airways marketed and operated flights between Seattle and London plus MVP Gold and Gold 75 members will receive elite benefits.
You can access and register for this offer on Alaska’s website here.
Here are the elite benefits:
Between April 1, 2016 and September 30, 2016, our MVP® Gold and Gold 75K members are eligible for the following benefits when traveling with British Airways:
- Club World priority check-in and boarding at Seattle (SEA) and London-Heathrow (LHR) airports
- Fast Track security access at London-Heathrow (LHR) airport
- Access to the Terminal 5 Galleries lounge at London-Heathrow (LHR) airport
When I was reading Alaska’s description of British Airways in-flight service and equipment, it was like they were describing some other airline!
The drawback of crediting these partner flights to Alaska’s plan is that you may not end up with any alliance status and Alaska MVP benefits don’t usually extend to partners.
Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:
Mileage Plan members who register for this promotion before their first qualifying flight will receive double miles on nonstop British Airways flights between Seattle (SEA) and London-Heathrow (LHR), for travel from April 1, 2016, through September 30, 2016. Mileage for qualifying flights must be credited to the member’s Mileage Plan account. Flights must be marketed and operated by British Airways. Not valid on free or award travel. Double miles do not count towards Mileage Plan elite status. Double miles will be awarded within four to six weeks of meeting the promotion’s qualifications. All terms and conditions of the Mileage Plan program apply. Offer subject to change without notice.
