This marks the airline's fourth city in Canada after Montreal, Toronto, and Vancouver.

The most popular in Canada being Delta SkyMiles and Air France KLM's Flying Blue. (Source Routesonline)

You can now book Japan Airlines (JAL) flights with your Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan miles! The partnership that was announced earlier this year that launched with earn only benefits now sees the launch of redemption options! The awards price similar to Alaska Airlines' other partners on flights from Canada. Flights to Asia start as low as 35,000 miles one-way on Japan Airlines (Cathay prices slightly better at 30,000) but this still provides a good option seeing that you can earn 25,000 Miles on your first purchase with the mbna Alaska Airlines MasterCard and then spend $10,000 to earn that other 10,000 miles for the base level award ticket. Business and First Class flights price out quite nice as well. Here is just sampling of the Mileage Plan awards to Asia on JAL:

Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG) Platinum Preferred Members enrolled in the Crossover Rewards  program traveling on Delta flights will clear for Complimentary Upgrades to both First Class and Delta Comfort+ based on their SPG tier level on paid tickets. This means that Marriott Platinum's also qualify since they get instant SPG Platinum status. (Source One Mile at a Time)
