Alaska’s Companion Fare Can Now Be Used On Virgin America

Alaska Airlines Visa Signature Credit Card offers a nice sign up bonus, plus an annual companion fare after you make $1,000 or more in purchases within the first 90 days of your account opening. That Companion Fare will cost just $99 plus taxes.

The good news is that starting today, you’ll be able to use that Annual Companion Fare on Virgin America flights as well.

The Companion Fare code must be redeemed at within 12 months of the date of issue. The Companion Fare code is not valid with award travel, and cannot be combined with any other airfare discounts.

    • well if thats all you care about then yea. Y seats can suck. but the benefits outweigh the Y anytime man. totally worth it IMHO. you dont gotta be international F suite every time.

      • Being tall and wide shouldered, for any long haul I prefer room. I have 3 + hour limit in coach. I am sure it’s great for a lot of people though, otherwise there wouldn’t be so many coach seats on a plane.
