Alaska Airlines has released some details of mileage earning changes that will take place on January 1st 2015 and for those flying on Alaska metal the changes are good for those who fly on more expensive tickets. For those flying on Delta but crediting to Mileage Plan it isn't good. These are further signs of the heated battle going on for Seattle between the two carriers. (Source ThePointsGuy)

British Airways is changing the qualification criteria for their Gold Guest List elite status. Here is an excerpt from FlyerTalk where a BA representative posted this news. (Source: FlyerTalk)
You can qualify for Gold Guest List by either reaching 5,000 Tier Points during one single Tier Point Collection Year or by reaching 3,000 Tier Points in two consecutive Tier Point Collection Years. From 1st January 2015 Members will only be able to qualify for Gold Guest List by reaching 5,000 Tier Points during one single Tier Point Collection Year – which means that Members will no longer be able to qualify by reaching 3,000 Tier Points in two consecutive years....

...There is no change to the renewal criteria meaning that existing Gold Guest List Members can continue to renew by reaching 3,000 Tier Points during their Tier Point Collection Year.
