of Alaska Airlines: Homosexual man blames company for discriminatory practices
After one of them was asked to give up his place so that a square pair could be seated together, Alaska Airlines apologized to a homosexual pair. David Cooley, proprietor of the Los Angeles Restaurants, said his travel guide was asked to give up his luxury seats and be in the business zone.
Although they declared that they were a pair, they had the option of either getting out of the airplane or getting out of it - which they did. They said they had a "zero tolerence discriminatory policy". Mr Cooley said in a Facebook article that he had "never before been so severely condemned while travelling".
Having experienced the New York to Los Angeles trip, he said he would never again be flying with Alaska Airlines. Alaska Airlines said in a statement: "A seat failure was the cause of this unhappy event, which was aggravated by a full plane and a team trying to leave on schedule, and nothing more than that.
"and we' re trying to fix it."
All Alaska Airlines use the reward scheme to fight Delta, United, American and others.
The Alaska Airlines is just a large US carrier with a frequently flier programme that still offer cashable points for points without any spendings. It sees its FFP as a precious tool against competitors such as American, Delta and United. At Alaska, we hope to use the program's lavish rewards as an opportunity to turn potential clients into regulars.
Over the past few years, airlines across the entire sector have worked to optimise their FFP programmes to compensate for the reward of those who make the most trips and pay the most out. Optimizations have in most cases added system mechanics to take into consideration the dollar issued by the carrier in excess of the overall number of kilometres.
The changes have resulted in less extensive FFPs for most people. Alaska Airlines is the only large US carrier to oppose this tendency and has not taken into account the cost of the FFMM. Instead, you collect as many leagues as you go with Alaska. Alaska' s programme has been awarded this year as the best in the USA by US News and the well-known tourist magazine The Points Guy.
Consequently, the FFP has become a precious rifle against major full-service airlines such as American, United and Delta. Syth also noted that Alaska's choice not to include a sales element is due to the fact that it is targeting a slightly different customer base than its competitors who focus on high-spending'Road Warriors' people.
Alaska Airlines has anchored its intent to become the airline of choosing for the West Coast of the United States with the takeover of Virgin America. But Alaska' s bigger rival will not give in so easy. In 2014, Delta entered Alaska Air's home lawn when it added Seattle-Tacoma International Airport to its hubwork.
Alaska' s Los Angeles and San Francisco centers are equally strong. While United is a significant SFO participant, all three large legacies carrier have LAX hub. As a result, the airline's miles programme has become an important part of Alaska's California operations policy. "So, what we have tried to do is to show how a few of these tours you can deserve free trip to Alaska must be quicker than with any other airline," Bowman added.
Alaska' s aim is to use the reward programme to turn potential clients into regulars.
