Just got a surprising email this morning that Alaska Airlines is changing the number of miles needed domestically for flights.  Instead of the normal information I’m seeing about airlines devaluing their mileage plan, Alaska is going the other way and making their miles go further.  That’s awesome for those who fly Alaska.  Thanks Alaska Airlines!

Instead of a flight from Portland to LA casting me 12,500, I can now get their for 7,500 miles.  That means for the same miles I would have spent before, I get a bonus flight under 700 miles (Seattle and San Francisco come to mind).  That’s fantastic!

Head over to Alaska Airlines site for more information: Mileage Plan program changes | Alaska Airlines
