With a HT to FlyerTalk it seems that Alaska is not going down without a fight. Delta has for Washington residents a HUGE MQM and RDM bonus going on but Alaska is making it even more simple – we will just match your status!
Should you do this? If you are fed up with Skymiles2015 and are already crediting your Delta flying to Alaska why not and enjoy the perks of their program along the way.
Personally I think Skymiles2015 is going to hurt Delta big time and will be looked back on as the “NEW COKE” for Delta and they will say – WHAT WERE WE THINKING? We will not see these detrimental effects until about this time next year. I can’t fathom how upsetting most low spend business flyers, ALL who spend over $6819 per ticket, and just catering to just a narrow middle subset of flyers is a good idea at all. Time will tell! – René
