How do I arrange stop-over when using Alaska miles?
Sorry for the naive question, but how does one arrange for a stop-over when booking a flight using Alaska Air miles? When I book flights through their website, there is no easily visible way to do so. The available flights may have a stop-over, but the next leg of the flight is almost always just a few hours later. How would I arrange to stay several days before continuing onT
Thank you in advance for your advice.
From Alaska website:
“Round-trip itineraries with 2 stopovers, or one-way awards with 1 stopover may only be booked through an Alaska Airlines call center.”
What are you planning for your itinerary? AS only lets stopovers occur in hub cities and you cant mix partners. Aside from Cathay and LAN, all other AS partners should be bookable online
Have you tried the AS multi-city tool?
You should be able to book it through the multi-city tool, depending on the destinations. Calling is easy though — Alaska agents are generally great.
Thank you all for your help. The Multi-City option seems to work. I had not realized that was the way to line up a stop-over. Much appreciate your assistance.
