Excerpt from news release:
 Following closing, Alaska Airlines will welcome Virgin America Elevate loyalty program members into its Mileage Plan, ranked #1 by U.S. News and World Report. With Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan, members are able to redeem award miles for travel to more than 900 destinations worldwide, rivaling global alliances. Until the transaction closes, both loyalty programs will remain distinct – with no short-term impact on members. Upon closing, the programs will be merged. Alaska Airlines is committed to ensuring that loyalty members of both airlines maintain the same high-value rewards they've come to enjoy in both programs – with access to an even larger network.

Up In The Air / Delta's new "availability" calendar
« on: February 02, 2015, 06:54:26 AM »
I thought I started to notice a trend with Delta's domestic availability from the NY area, so I checked a bunch of cities and I came up with the following (all nonstops):






Want to only spend 12.5K for that domestic one way?
Wait until Feb 24.

Willing to spend 5K more?

You can go Feb 17.

I can't imagine this is a coincidence.
2 weeks and 3 weeks out are big dates when fares go up for the LCCs, and I would assume someone at Delta decided to follow suit with the miles availability.
