Received this invitation via email for fast track to MVP Gold Status. Currently I hold MVP. It’s great, except it’s hard to do 4 round trip transcontinental flights between now and May 31.
You’ll earn MVP® status after 2 round trips (4 qualifying flights)
You’ll earn MVP® Gold status after 4 round trips (8 qualifying flights)
Unsure how many invites are going out, but if you don’t have MVP status, it does say you can get MVP status after 2 roundtrips, that’s a lot more feasible. If you get this e-mail and are in the US, certainly worth vying for if you have the time and budget. Keep in mind CX flights credited to AS get 100% bonus as MVP Gold!!
Only caveat here, normally if you qualify in the traditional route in 2019, you’ll get status for the rest of 2019 and all of 2020. For this promo, your status only maintains through Dec 31, 2019.
Seems Alaska is trying really hard to promote their newly refurbished Airbus planes with new interiors. See this coverage from CondeNast.
