Avios via Alaska Airlines on Cathay
Really need some help here! There’s so many articles about being able to use Avios to book Alaska flights but once and for all can someone PLEASE clarify the following? Can I use Avios to book Cathay via Alaska Airlines?

What do I say to BA when I call to do this?

You can use Avios to book first class on Cathay, but the 70k is the Alaska rate. Depending on where you are trying to fly to, it could be upwards of 100,000 points plus taxes + fees.
