Alaska Airlines and American Airlines award tickets

Alaska Airlines and American Airlines award tickets

    Hello! I often fly from RDU to HKG. Is it OK for me to use alaska airlines miles to redeem british airways business class from RDU to HKG via LHR or is it a violation of redemption policy of Alaska Airlines? Furthermore, when does American Airlines typically release business class tickets from the US to Hong Kong? Thank you very much!

    looking on Alaska Airline’s website that doesn’t seem to be possible doing “Continental U.S.” to “Asia” . Does not seem to be possible to do two separate awards either. I am unsure on the HKG question on AA. The airlines which AS partners with that you can do that routing on are AA, CX, DL, EK, HU, and KE

    AA is sporadic when it comes to releasing space and seems to do it on a whim every so often. It’d be easier to use AA miles to book on partners. You can mix AA and CX on the same US-Asia award as long as there is availability. BA/JL/QF’s tools will display CX availability. You [I]could[/I] route an award from US-LHR-HKG but AA will charge you the price of 2 awards since youre connecting in a 3rd region that doesnt have an exception. If you travel on BA, fuel surcharges are quite a bit.

    AS will only let you book awards listed on their site, like [USER=104]@Jacob McCarthy[/USER] showed you. Note that you cant mix partners though but you can add an AS leg on the itinerary.
