Is it still possible to use Alaska miles for international business class travel from the US east coast to London or Paris on partner airlines (AF, BA, AA, DL)? I made it happen last summer but can only find coach seats now. I don’t want to fly coach.
Welcome [USER=1411]@AlaskaMiles[/USER] – yes, it’s still possible – if there are seats available. We know AA has become incredibly stingy with award seats on their own planes. And since the seats have to be available at the lowest level to fly on partners, you never know what you’re going to see with Delta – though the answer is “probably nothing available”.
For a random Tuesday in early November I saw some seats on the PHL-LHR route, on both BA and AA metal. What timeframe are you looking for tickets?
Thanks! Wife and I are looking to get away late spring/early summer – yes, the high season – but was hoping two seats wouldn’t be too hard to find. Turns out I was wrong!
