Alaska; redemption restricted to relatives?
Hi Lucky, et al,
Being based in Australia I am more familiar with our local FF programs where you cannot redeem miles/points for tickets for just anyone – you can only use your miles to book a ticket for a relative, basically (there is a list or permitted relations; wife, child, parent, etc). So, eg, you can’t book an award ticket for a friend or colleague.
But what about Alaska? Do they have a similar restriction, or can I book a ticket using my miles in any name I want? I’ve had a look at their basic T&Cs on the website and can find no mention of any such restriction or exclusion, but would like to be sure.
Many thanks for any info.
That’s not usually an issue with US-based carriers. You should be able to redeem miles and put anyone else’s name on the ticket.
