Alaska Airlines Award Chart Changes Coming in December
Alaska Airlines has revealed on its website today that award charts changes are coming soon. The airline is giving us advance notice of these changes, but is not revealing any details on what we might expect. We do know that changes will go into effect in late December.
Here’s what the announcement says:
Good news for 2022! Cathay Pacific awards will be available to book on alaskaair.com in October and LATAM awards will be available before the end of 2022.
Starting late December, the way you view award charts online is changing. We’ll have a simplified award chart to show you where award levels start based on which regions you’re traveling from and to. With this change, similar to awards on Alaska, partner award levels may vary depending on multiple factors including route, distance, or demand. You’ll continue to be able to enjoy great value for your miles. As always, the best way to view pricing and availability for the routes you’re interested in flying is to search for your specific travel dates and destinations.
This is labeled as good news, and in fact the first part is. Cathay Pacific awards will be available to book on Alaska in October and LATAM before the end of the year. But the award chart changes, rarely are good news. We do know it will be simpler, as well as region and distance based.
