From Monday 26 June 2017, Qantas will add its code to four new Alaska Airlines routes between San Francisco and Orange County, Minneapolis, Albuquerque and Kansas City, as well as on its service between Los Angeles and San Jose. The new flights are in addition to Qantas’ existing codeshare arrangements with Alaska Airlines to 15 destinations within North America.
From Monday 20 June 2017 Qantas Frequent Flyer members with a Gold status or higher, and Qantas Club members, will have access to Alaska’s lounges in Los Angeles, Seattle, Anchorage and Portland whenever they travel on an Alaska flight, connecting to, or from, a Qantas international flight.
Alaska Airlines’ top tier frequent flyers with Mileage Plan™ MVP Gold and above, and Alaska Lounge members, will have access to all 13 Qantas operated International Business and 24 Domestic Qantas Club lounges when they travel on a Qantas operated international or domestic flight.
Qantas currently operates a daily service between Los Angeles to Sydney and Melbourne on an Airbus A380, a daily service between Los Angeles and Brisbane on a Boeing 747, as well as a service between San Francisco and Sydney six times per week on a Boeing 747.
