CX business through Alaska
I was wondering if anyone knew a work around to book cathay pacific business class through Alaska as I currently see no availability.
Normally, CX awards dont show up on Alaska’s site. What’s recommended is to search on BA. QF or JL’s sites then call AS to confirm and book.
However, there’s some issues with CX award space in general: [URL]https://onemileatatime.boardingarea.com/2018/07/13/no-cathay-pacific-business-class-awards/[/URL]
This morning Gary at VFTW wrote a post about how it’s married segment logic causing issues. So instead of looking for JFK-HKG, look for JFK-HKG-BKK (or have the agent do that), book that then immediately call back and drop the HKG-BKK leg (assuming HKG is where you want to go).
