Hey–did you hear? Alaska Air is the first airline to get the bigger overhead bins from Boeing. It doesn’t mean you can bring your Christmas tree or your crankshaft on board. But there’s a better chance you can stash your roller-bag up above. The new bins offer almost 50 percent more room. Two thumbs up!


NOW OPEN! Don’t you just love Seattle’s “N” terminal?? Yeah, me, too. Ugh. Fear not. Alaska Air has moved in and they’ve completed the long-anticipated Board Room (fancy artist’s rendering, above). My spies tell me the new Board Room is very nice. By the way…it’s just the FIRST STEP toward a roof-top lounge. Details to follow.

BONUS: Are you a Club 49 member? If not, WHY NOT? You get two free checked bags when traveling to/from Alaska.

Are you MVP? MVP Gold? Life is easier when you’re a top-tier Mileage Plan member. You get First Class upgrades, bonus miles, fees waived, access to better seats…and more. It’s a good thing. To reach MVP, you need to fly at least 20,000 miles in a year. HEY–there’s STILL TIME for you to do a “mileage run.” I’ve done it! Learn more HERE.

Remember, with Alaska Airlines you accrue MORE MILES than on Delta, since they (Delta) have switched to a dollar-based system. The Mileage Plan is a BETTER MILEAGE PLAN than Delta’s, according to me…and all of my friends (except those who work at Delta and my friend Bart Parker, aka “Mr. Delta”, who has almost 2,000,000 SkyMiles. HA). The tie-in with the Alaska Airlines VISA card is great (I carry two of the cards), especially the $99 Companion Pass feature.
