Qantas PE space not available to Alaska
I used expert flyer to find space on a Qantas flight in PE, but Alaska is telling me that they can’t book it / don’t have access to the inventory. Is this always the case? Any tips on how I can get the seat booked via Alaska?
Welcome [USER=4357]@NYC[/USER] – I’m not super-familiar with Alaska rules but it wouldn’t surprise me. I know on AA you can’t book PE seats on partners.

Thanks! Yeah, I saw it available on alaska’s website the other day so it’s definitely bookable. Figured the seat’s open on expert flyer meant that they would be open to any award partner but a call center center supervisor indicated that that’s not the case. HUCA situation?
Possibly – it can’t hurt – but I know that for some airlines AS doesn’t have access to all partner award inventory. For example, awhile back on Fiji Air I could see 2 business class seats on EF and had my friend book with AA miles. I could no longer see the remaining seat on the AS website but AA could still book it for me.
