When it rains it pours! Alaska Airlines is joining the ranks of United, Delta and American Airlines in announcing this week that they’re eliminating change fees on all domestic and international tickets, effective immediately. As you probably know, Southwest Airlines has never had these obnoxious change fees.

Alaska Airlines and its regional partners serve more than 115 destinations across the USA and North America and has hubs in Anchorage, Los Angeles, Portland, San Francisco and Seattle.

The new change fee policy applies to all tickets, except for Saver fares (their version of Basic Economy). Previously, Alaska’s change fee of $125 applied to all non-Saver travel, except for guests traveling on refundable tickets and Mileage Plan top elite status members.

During the pandemic, Alaska is also extending its flexible travel policy for all new ticket purchases, including Saver fares through Dec. 31, 2020.

This is great news and I assume JetBlue will be next to announce that they’re dropping their change fees.
