There is a way for the next 12 days. Alaska Airlines is not part of any alliance but it has an agreement with Delta that allows you to earn Mileage Plan miles when flying with them. Unfortunately, on April 30, 2017, the agreement will end. Getting a Delta Skymiles membership or any other Skyteam member will get you points for flying with Delta. Alaska ...
