Preferred Plus is similar to Virgin America's Main Cabin Extra Select but is more restricted as clients receive only one free beverage.
Virgin America provides both free drinks and meals for additional passengers in the master stateroom. Preferred Plus fits Alaska Airlines as the "best seats" in the cab: Economy: On selected Alaska Airlines routes, you can now use our new dedicated sitting options. Pay attention to this sitting options when you register with us on-line, at our newsstand, via our application or with one of our account managers.
They are free for our MVP®, MVP Gold and Gold 75K Miles Plan members and travelers who travel in the same booking. Recently I have flown Alaska Airlines and got a free Preferred Plus fit with my American Airlines Executive Platinumatus. Free for Alaska Airlines own elite planes and American Airlines' Platinum and Executive Platinum regulars, but not for Delta's Elites.
But the reservation against the Preferred plus seats is that the output lines and the bulkheads for this group of aircraft have always been free and even earlyboarding is not a new advantage. Really, the only new benefit of the Preferred Plus seating is the free beverage, and if you are reading the small text, the beverage is not free for those who get the seating due to free flier status! Your Preferred Plus seating is free!
American AAdvantage Platinum and American AAdvantage Executive Platinum members are not entitled to free bus cab inclusive catering. Rather than improve the flight quality, Alaska Airlines now sells the seat that was once reserved for top class high frequency travellers to its other clients and does not include the same quality for all passengers seated on Preferred Plus seating.
Indeed, the cabin crew just gave one free beverage to one individual, and when they did, they made sure that the people around him knew that he had bought the chair. "Mr. Smith, I see that you have bought a favorite plus fit, I can provide you with a Cocktail as it was contained in the purchase" - focus both occasions on the sale.
Alaska Airlines' intent to provide priority seating or a luxury savings plan is smart, I think, but Alaska must pursue Virgin America or even Delta by providing a luxury seating moment for all those seated on the priority seating and free of charge to their elite who are not equipped in the forward cab.
Furthermore, Alaska must consider actually improving the enjoyment by providing a premier treat and more than one free beverage, especially on longer trips. At present, Alaska has one leg in the front and one leg outside, half filling the whole area. Unless Alaska really stimulates favorite seats, folks won't be paying for them, because I think $15 to $50 isn't going to be enough for the one beverage and the additional leg room - especially in the front output rows that don't even lean back!
While I wouldn't advise purchasing a Plus favourite seating, I'd like to ask you. Did you buy a Alaska Airlines or any other carrier offer you a Premier Plus seating?
