Alaska Airlines and American Airlines
are gutting a major portion of their frequent flyer partnership.
Effective March 1, 2020 you will not be able to redeem miles from either
program for award flights on the other airlines, ie redeeming Mileage
Plan miles for flights on American. You will however still be able to
earn miles, albeit in a limited fashion, on the other airline’s flights.
Lounge access for each airline’s elite or lounge club members will
remain intact as well. Learn more about these changes here.
What’s changing, effective March 1, 2020:
- You will no longer earn Mileage Plan miles on American Airlines international flights.
- You will no longer be able to redeem miles for award travel on American Airlines domestic or international flights.
What’s not changing:
- You’ll continue to earn a mile for every mile flown on eligible
domestic American Airlines flights with an Alaska Airlines (AS) flight
number to select key destinations in the Midwest and eastern US and
- Alaska Lounge members can still access over 50 Admirals Club lounges worldwide when flying on an Alaska Airlines or American Airlines flight.
We had another good sized update to our Confirmed Cobalt Multipliers
resource! We should probably rename it to Confirmed American Express
Multiplier seeing that the AIR MILES Platinum Card will soon offer 1
Mile for $5 on Eats & Drinks and the fact the Platinum Card from American Express earns 3x points on dining. This time we give thanks to
FM for a big list of Vancouver locations, one Calgary restaurant and
some more travel multipliers. Visit the feature here.
Here’s what was added:
Japanese Village (YYC)
Colony Bar (YVR)
Incognito Coffee (YVR)
Noodlebox, Gabi & Jules, Fresh Slice Pizza, Elephant Garden, Ugly
Dumpling, True Confections, Kissa Tanto, Grapes and Soda, The Farmer’s
apprentice (all YVR)
Over on our global site, Frequent Flyer Bonuses, we highlighted a paid membership portion of TAP Portugal’s Miles&Go
called Club TAP Miles&Go. This membership club has you pay an
annual fee and in return in you receive bonus miles (redeemable & status) each month plus extra miles on flights (TAP does fly from Toronto) and if you buy the Platinum level you’ll receive Silver Elite status which you could then use to try to status match with other airlines. Find out more here.
