Alaska miles on qantas

Alaska miles on qantas

  1. Mick

    Hi all! I’m thinking of buying some alaksa miles to use on qantas or Cathay flights in biz to Australia in December. I am using the Qantas website to search availability but don’t see much even in October! Virtually no seats. Is the Cathay availability likely to return at any point after the aa members took a chunk of it?

    I like Korean and have sky pass points but it’s peak time and the extra miles don’t make it worth it.

    Alaska miles sale ends tonight. Qantas is stingy. If its not on Alaska’s site then you won’t get it. Doesn’t matter if on Qantas. If you can find CX on then you can get it with Alaska points.

    There used to be a lot of Cathay availability on ba but I don’t see nearly any of it now

    Unfortunately the availability is what it is. CX does release seats closer to departure but that may not work for you. Alaska miles are pretty flexible though so I might consider buying them speculatively if you are maxing out the bonus.

    Availability is [I]really[/I] tight through March 23rd, but a little bit better afterwards. I wouldn’t buy miles in anticipation of getting to Australia [I]this[/I] December, unless you’re really really flexible.
