Good morning everyone, happy Friday.  A few days ago, I was booking an Alaska Airlines flight for my brother (I am the personal travel agent for all my family members), and I was logged into my Alaska Airlines account.  2 weeks ago, I received 10,000 Alaska Airlines miles when my Virgin America account was linked to my Alaska Airlines account and my Virgin America Elevate Gold elite status matched to Alaska Airlines MVP Gold elite status.  I was curious if I had any guest upgrades in my Alaska Airlines account and was pleasantly surprised by what I saw.

I had 4 guest upgrade codes waiting for me (I used an upgrade code on my brother’s flight), but there are still 3 left in my account.  They all have an expiration date of December 31, 2018, and I think you have to complete travel by that date.  I don’t remember getting an email from Alaska Airlines about the guest upgrade codes either.

If anyone was recently matched to Alaska Airlines MVP Gold / 75K, you should have 4 guest upgrade codes in your account.  The next time I use an upgrade code, I will document the process and write a post about the process.  If you have any questions, please leave a comment below.  Have a great weekend everyone!

    Thanks for the heads-up. I became MVP Gold after linking my VA account. I didn’t see the upgrades when the match happened, but now, I checked again and there they are plus Alaska lounge pass codes, too.

    Thanks. Just found this out from my account too. With last year 4 guest upgrade codes I have a total of 8 codes now. But it seems I could not apply this code on a reward ticket but only purchased ticket?

      Yes, you can only upgrade paid “upgradeable” tickets booked directly on Alaska Airlines for travel on Alaska Airlines.
