Hi. I am planning a trip from lhr to del via hkg using Alaska miles on Cathays pacific. First of all can I use Alaska miles for this? I’m under the impression that yes I can.
I am planning to travel first class lhr to hkg and business class hkg to del return, as Cathay does not offer first class between hkg and del. The question is that as this will be a mixed class booking, how mamy miles would I need and would it be allowed on one ticket or do I need to purchase 2 different tickets?
You can do it on one booking, at the full first class rate.
It’s one award and first class round trip is 140k Alaska miles. However, CX F space is hard to come by so you might want to book business class then upgrade if/when seats become available.
