Alaska and Virgin America are slowly becoming one airline operationally, and as a result we’re seeing them adjust service in some markets. Alaska and Virgin America have been on a single operating certificate since the beginning of the year, and as of April 24, 2018, all Virgin America flights will have Alaska flight numbers, meaning that the airlines will be fully integrated as of that point. The airlines have even aligned their first class onboard catering as of the beginning of this month, and both airlines now offer the same catering in first class (which is an upgrade for Alaska passengers and downgrade for Virgin America passengers).

Historically Virgin America was the airline with a big presence at JFK, and it looks like Alaska plans on maintaining that. Alaska has just announced some interesting updates regarding JFK.
