Recently Virgin America and Virgin Atlantic “sunsetted” their frequent flyer relationship. It is no longer possible to earn or redeem frequent flyer miles in each other’s program. This change took place despite the fact Alaska Airlines hasn’t purchased Virgin America yet. The most likely reason for the premature ending of the two Virgin branded airlines relationship is that Virgin America’s new owner and Virgin Atlantic’s other owner don’t like each other any longer – Alaska Airlines and Delta Airlines. They’ve been feuding ever since Delta chose to build a new hub in Seattle to service the Asia market. Virgin Atlantic recently overhauled there Flying Club frequent flyer program, and both Virgin airlines decided November 12th, 2016 would be the last day of the partnership.
