A good overview of all of the recent Alaska devaluations.  They still have the most valuable miles but they are no longer as customer friendly as they once were.  It seems like each domestic carrier, outside of Southwest for the most part, have slowly worked their way to the bottom right next to each other.  That is probably why Delta is now the best airline for domestic award travel.
