Mileage Plan The Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan program provides a suite of frequent flier benefits. Miles can be earned by flying on Alaska or on 1 of the company’s 14 airline partners, or by using the Alaska Airlines Visa Signature card, or through other non-airline partners. The company’s list of airline partners includes carriers associated with two of the three major global alliances (Oneworld and SkyTeam). Further, members can receive 25,000 bonus miles upon signing up for the Alaska Airlines Visa Signature card and earn triple miles on purchases made on Alaska Airlines flights or on alaskaair.com. The Mileage Plan provides more value per dollar spent on the Alaska Airlines Visa Signature card, in comparison to other comparable frequent flier programs in the industry. Agreements The company’s agreements fall into three different categories: Frequent Flier, Codeshare, and Interline agreements. Frequent Flier Agreements offer mileage credits and redemptions for the company’s Mileage Plan members. Alaska offers frequent flier programs for the company’s Mileage Plan members through its frequent flier partnerships with 14 domestic and international carriers. Distribution The company’s airline tickets are distributed through three primary channels, such as Alaskaair.com, traditional and online travel agencies, and reservation call centers. Suppliers The company’s suppliers include The Boeing Company and Bombardier. Seasonality The company’s profitability is lowest during the first and fourth quarters (year ending December 2013) due principally to lower traffic. Profitability increases in the second quarter and then reaches its highest level during the third quarter as a result of vacation travel, including increased activity in the state of Alaska. Competition The company’s principal competitors include Delta Air Lines, United, Southwest, American Airlines, and Hawaiian. Environmental and Occupational Safety Matters The U.S. federal laws that have a particular effect on the company include the Airport Noise and Capacity Act of 1990, the Clean Air Act, the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act, the Clean Water Act, the Safe Drinking Water Act, and the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act, Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act, and the Oil Pollution Control Act.
