Personal travel. Going from ATL to SEA. I have Amex Plat. Options are Delta where I could get lounge access on both ends (ATL side would he nice to have, on arrival I could skip) using miles, or for ~$50 more equivalent in cashew for Alaska.

That’s a lot of cashews

Yup. Got upgraded to first last weekend and it was a lot of (warm) cashews! Benefits of flying on a Saturday night

I guess depends on how tall you are, but extra legroom on a 5 hour flight seems nicer

Not tall, but it is nice regardless. I wasn’t really considering it, but delta would charge something like $170 for comfort plus which made me think maybe I’m under valuing it

For a change * is the end of what I meant to write

Why not book Delta and pay cash for extra legroom?

But the cash for extra legroom/comfort plus is about the same as the entire flight cost on alaska

Alaska is my favorite domestic airline, so you know what I'd pick.

Don’t worry about skipping the lounge on arrival because you won’t have access at the destination now under Delta’s new policy anyways. SEA also has an Amex lounge which you can use before your return flight on either airline

They took that back. They got rid of all those changes except the 3 hours pre-departure due to significant pushback. And this is for the ATL-SEA flight. ATL has a priority pass lounge but its all the way in the international terminal, sucks and is mobbed
