On December 19, 2016, both Virgin America members and Alaska Airlines members will earn miles on each other’s flights. And folks with elite status will receive priority check-in and priority boarding with both airlines
On December 22, 2016, we’ll find out the schedules and availability for new flights from Alaska Airlines’ new hub, San Francisco.
On January 9, 2017, folks with Virgin America Silver and Gold status can match to Alaska Airlines MVP and MVP Gold status. And Virgin America Elevate members will be invited to activate new Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan accounts.
We have no updates about how or when we can book award flights with the other airline’s rewards currency. Still, I like how Alaska Airlines is giving folks mutual benefits soon after the merger closes, instead of waiting until the integration is complete!
