Alaska Airlines offering its own version of basic economy

The days of Alaska Airlines not having a basic economy program are numbered.

On the Q1 Earnings Call this morning, Alaska Airlines announced its a beginning a “Saver Fare” program, which is similar to basic economy offered by United, Delta, and American, except that you will be able to select your own seat (towards the back of the plane).

On the Alaska Saver Fare, you will not be able to earn miles towards elite status, there will be restrictions about what you can bring on the plane, and you will board last.
