Alaska Airlines Fast Track to Requalify for Last Year’s Status Level

Via Upgrade Travel Better, channeling MileMaven, Alaska Airlines is offering elites who didn’t requalify for their previous status last year a short-cut to regaining that status. Between January 15 and March 15, MVP status requires four paid flown segments and MVP Gold requires eight paid flown segments. Registration is required.

Man, out on the West Coast a simple segment run like this is easy, Seattle to Portland runs are cheap, there’s a Los Angeles hub, and even flights connecting in places like Boise. It should be possible to requalify for MVP Gold on a single ticket in a single day (albeit that may not be the cheapest option) if you work at it hard enough.
