$60 Per Year For Alaska Airlines Subscription? No Thanks.

This April Fool joke is a little too early — but it is sadly not a joke...

Why would anyone want to pay $60 per year for Alaska Airlines subscription? No thanks. I already have too much “junk” mail flooding my email accounts as it is — and free of charge, no less.

$60 Per Year For Alaska Airlines Subscription? No Thanks.

Included in a subscription to what is called Alaska Access is the following:

  • Wi-Fi voucher — Stay connected and productive aboard airplanes; or just sit back and stream your favorite programs.
  • Early sale access — Be the first to land low fares to your favorite destinations during the “legendary” sales of Alaska Airlines.
  • Personalized fare page — Get the best seat for the best price with an easier way to view deals for members only.

You get all of this for only five dollars per month — but you must commit to this service for a minimum of twelve months.

I would like to know who conjured this brilliant idea — as well as what was used for the purpose of inebriation.

The airfare “sales” of many airlines are barely worth any attention at all for free — let alone for $60.00 per year.

I can think of many better ways that I can spend my money. I cannot imagine this service lasting very long…

…but then again, I can remember the days when checking baggage was included in airfares and virtually no one wanted to check their belongings anyway — and today, passengers actually pay to have their luggage checked.

Go figure…
