I have Elite status on Delta. I'm forced to fly Alaska Air on an upcoming trip to Seattle. I do have an Alaska mileage plan number, but no status. Alaska says they honor your Delta status in determining baggage fees. Does anyone know how I get Alaska to know my Delta status? Do I book the Alaska flight with my Delta Skymiles number? Do I use my Alaska number and just tell them at the gate my status (that can't be right)? I'd actually call Alaska to ask them, but I can't find anything but their useless automated helper agent on their website. I guess as a related question, if I want the Alaska miles to credit my Delta account, which mileage plan number should I use at booking? Thanks for the help!!!
