Effective yesterday, Alaska and KLM have discontinued their partnership.
This was revealed on Flyertalk. I can’t find any mention of the change on the Alaska Air website, all references to the KLM partnership are just gone — down the memory hole — very Orwell-esque.
Award tickets that have already been issued are valid for travel for one year from date of issue or June 6, 2006, whichever comes first.
Not only was the change done without warning, but members haven’t been informed.
