The routes mark the single largest new market announcement in Alaska Airlines history. With the additional flights, Alaska Airlines and Virgin America will offer guests 125 daily nonstop flights to 42 destinations from the three major Bay Area airports.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. JPMorgan analyst Richard Vosser downgraded Novartis (NVS) to Neutral from Overweight saying pressures on the company's business are mounting. The pressure from generic erosion in 2017 "remains high" with an estimated $2.3B of sales expected to be lost to generics, said Vosser, who sees "significant downside" to consensus estimates for Novartis. 2. BofA Merrill Lynch analyst Lisa Lewandowski downgraded Philip Morris (PM) to Neutral from Buy and lowered its price target to $96 from $102 citing concerns from the strong U.S. dollar, less impact from an overhaul in U.S. tax policy versus peers, underperformance in combustible tobacco volumes, increasing heat-not-burn competition, a rotation out of defensive/bond proxy assets, and debt convent constraints. 3. Jefferies analyst Andy Barish downgraded Dunkin' Brands (DNKN) to Underperform from Hold, saying he does not believe the company's same-store-sales have broken out above 2% while its international growth has been disappointing. Barish also downgraded Cheesecake Factory (CAKE) to Underperform, citing the 15% post-election rally with no change in fundamentals along with the company's "significant" mall exposure. 4. Evercore ISI downgraded Intuitive Surgical (ISRG) to Hold from Buy and lowered its price target to $690 from $780, with analyst Vijay Kumar saying he expects 2017 to be one of the most challenging for healthcare in general, with the sector facing issues ranging from ACA repeal to border tax reform to interest expense deductibility. 5. Cowen analyst Helane Becker downgraded a number of airline stocks, including United Continental (UAL), JetBlue (JBLU), Alaska Air (ALK) and American Airlines (AAL), to Market Perform from Outperform based on valuation.

Alaska Air upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BofA/Merrill
BofA/Merrill upgraded Alaska Air to Buy and raised its price target to $110 from $97. Analyst Andrew Didora said the closing of the Virgin America acquisition provides diversification as Alaska gains access to several top, slot-constrained airports and more than doubles its presence in SFO and LAX, creating the largest carrier in the West Coast in terms of seat share. Didora raised Alaska Air estimates to reflect accretion and a better than expected revenue environment over the pas few months and views 2017 consensus estimates as conservative.

Airline stocks should benefit from fiscal stimulus, says Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank analyst Michael Linenberg believes stronger GDP growth in 2017, helped by fiscal stimulus initiatives, should be good for economically-sensitive stocks such as airlines. Companies that are domestic-oriented, pay cash taxes, have low financial leverage and can take advantage of bonus depreciation should outperform, Linenberg tells investors in a research note. He likes shares of Southwest (LUV), JetBlue (JBLU), Spirit Airlines (SAVE), Allegiant Travel (ALGT) and Alaska Air (ALK). Delta Air Lines (DAL) is his top pick among the majors.

Alaska Air price target raised to $101 from $84 at Imperial Capital
Imperial Capital analyst Michael Derchin raised his price target on Alaska Air to $101 from $84 following the closing of its acquisition of Virgin America. However, he sees merger integration as a short-term risk and maintains an In-Line rating on Alaska Air shares.
