英文原文

Partnership changes

Alaska has grown a lot recently, by acquiring Virgin America, expanding to 118 cities, and growing our global partner network. With growth comes change, and starting January 1, 2018, Alaska and American Airlines will be making important updates to our partnership, though a lot will remain the same

What’s not changing:

  • You’ll still earn miles on domestic American Airlines flights with an Alaska Airlines (AS) flight number, and on all American international flights.
  • You’ll still be able to redeem miles on American flights globally.
  • Alaska Lounge members can still access Admirals Club lounges when traveling on Alaska or American.

What is changing:

  • American Airlines domestic flights with an “AA” flight number will no longer earn Mileage Plan miles.
  • You’ll no longer receive elite benefits when traveling on American Airlines after December 31, 2017.
  • Some award levels will be changing for travel booked in 2018.

结论

阿拉斯加航空一向以与其它航空公司保持友好关系而著称,但是随着阿拉期加航空越做越大,尤其是收购了维珍航空之后,跟其它航空公司的关系也慢慢变差了。现在阿拉斯加航空最好用的,还是可以用超低的分数(5万分商务,7万分头等)兑换北美飞亚洲的国泰机票,手头有阿拉斯加航空积分的朋友,有机会的话就尽快兑换吧。详情:你的第一张长途商务舱积分兑换机票
