    Alaska Airlines has announced they will be severing ties with partner Icelandair effective June 1, 2013. The two will have a "phased" winding down of relations following that date per an email sent to Mileage Plan members this week:

    The phased approach is actually reasonably generous, based on the purchase date of the ticket as defining the earning rules. Here’s what their website shows:

    Wording from the reward area of the Alaska website:



    Icelandair

    Effective June 1, 2013, Icelandair will no longer be a Mileage Plan™ partner. Existing award travel, and award travel booked by May 31, 2013, will be honored for travel through February 28, 2014. Award travel on Icelandair cannot be booked or changed after May 31, 2013.​

    Glad I got in on that deal a few months ago for AS first. Would be curious to know if that was the driving force behind this. I thought the ANC/SEA-REK route would have helped the relationship.

    I agree the route to Iceland from that part of north ameica should of helped them both you'd think. Odd. Maybe the whole Iceland miles to Hawaii deal hurt the relationship.
