A Flyertalk member posted a summary of Wednesday’s Alaska Airlines MVP Gold lunch in Anchorage. (Alaska regularly hosts gatherings for their top tier elites.)
- A new Platinum top tier will be introduced in 2008, requiring 70,000 to 80,000 miles.
- MVP Gold “Guest Upgrade” certificates will be going electronic in 2007 (bye bye, eBay).
- Alaska’s website can now book partner awards on Delta.
- Alaska will be introducing a new destination that members “will really like.” Rumors have been flying for a long time about Hawaii, but this is hardly confirmation of that. (Alaska’s 737s can make the jaunt…)
