- Alaska elite status will be extended so that you’ll maintain your current status through 12/31/21. All tier benefits will apply except the 50K bonus miles for hitting 75K status. Alaska will announce how 75K elites can earn bonus miles in a few weeks from now.
- Members who enrolled in a status match challenge between 12/1/19-3/31/20 will keep their trial elite status through 12/31/21! That’s incredibly generous of Alaska.
- Elite qualifying miles earned between 1/1/20-4/30/20 will rollover to 2021. That includes the 50% bonus elite qualifying miles.
- All companion certificates that were going to expire on any date in 2020 will now expire on 12/31/20 for travel through 11/26/21.
- Alaska lounge members will get a 6 month extension.
- More information will be coming in the next few weeks about how to more easily qualify for 2020 status.
Well, American, JetBlue, and Southwest, what are you waiting for?
