SEATTLE, Washington (KINY) - Alaska Airlines is ending its partnership with Delta Airlines in April next year. Reports say mileage plan members who've booked with Delta can still earn Alaska miles, but members who haven't booked yet will need to do so and use that travel before April 30th to earn those miles.
Also on April 30th, Alaska and Delta will no longer do code sharing but will keep interline agreements for trips requiring multiple airlines.
The change is *not* the result of Alaska Airlines' merger with Virgin America. The only concession required by antitrust regulators was Alaska limiting its codesharing partnership with American Airlines.
