Alaska miles purchase

Alaska miles purchase

  1. Mick

    thanks to all for the continued help! Does anyone know how long Alaska miles take to post? If I found an award and went to book could I buy the miles and see them and the bonus miles in my account straight away?

    Also if I find Cathay space on the qantas website will it definitely be bookable on Alaska?

  2. David W

    In my experience, purchased AS miles post right away, including the bonus, if any.

    CX space on QF [I]should[/I] be bookable but sometimes it’s phantom space or AS cant access it.

    I’d call AS to make sure they see the seats and if they do, keep them on the phone while you purchase the miles and then have them issue the ticket after you’re done purchasing the miles.

    Thanks David very helpful as always. Finally starting to see some Cathay availability to Australia open up.

    Btw I there a way to search one world availability on a phone? Qantas app doesn’t have reward bookings

    The BA app allows award searches.

  5. Cal

    however the ba app recently does not seem to be showing availability close in, at least for CX. (Is this new?)

  6. David W

    Yeah that is new. I’m not familiar with Qantas’ app so I’m not sure if you can search for awards. I’d just call to check.
