Airlines battling to one up each other is always a good thing for consumers. Seattle is the hometown of Alaska Airlines, yet surprisingly enough the Seattle Seahawks’ main sponsor is none other than Delta Air Lines. The ongoing battle has resulted in Delta offering Seattle residents some great deals, including a great partnership with the Seahawks. The promotion with the Seahawks started with the regular football season and allowed fans to earn miles based on the on-field performances of the team. The promotion is called the 12status promotion.
