Elite Status Alignment Between Mileage Plan and oneworld Alliance Announced Officially
For example, an MVP Gold member of the Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan frequent flier loyalty program will immediately receive Sapphire elite level status in the oneworld alliance. If that traveler then takes a trip from San Francisco to Doha on Qatar Airways, they will have access to business class airport lounges, business class priority check-in, and priority boarding — regardless of the class of service in which they are flying as a passenger.
Many of the benefits which members of Mileage Plan currently enjoy on Alaska Airlines with the elite status they earned will seamlessly carry over to the oneworld elite tiers when they travel on any of the 13 member airlines of the global oneworld alliance, which means that they will be able to take advantage of a variety of privileges — including but not limited to:
Access to international first airport lounges and business class airport lounges
Fast track through airport security checkpoints
Alaska Airlines — which serves greater than 115 destinations across the United States and North America with its regional partners — will be the fourteenth full member of the oneworld alliance. The current 13 full members of the alliance are:
Royal Air Maroc
Fiji Airways is a oneworld connect partner.
Prior to the current 2019 Novel Coronavirus pandemic, the global network of the oneworld alliance offered flights to greater than 1,000 destinations in greater than 170 countries and territories. I do not know what are the current numbers.
