Not sure if it was just a bad choice of words or not, but anyway...
It's not flipping for stacks that is the problem. If that were the case then we take the flip because it's +EV (there's money already in the pot).
The problem with getting AK all in pre-flop when deep is that as stacks get deeper shove ranges become very narrow. Think of it as the opposite of a tournament, as the blinds are getting higher it becomes correct to play for stacks with all sorts of marginal hands that you would have folded in the early stages. The deeper the stacks, the bigger the hand you need to go all in.
It's not that AK is flipping, it's that AK is dominated by a narrow shove range.
