    Fantastic Alaska Airline miles deal on again

    Thanks mate! 5 more weeks and I'm off to Japan, little bit nervous considering I was only charged 35,000 miles for MEL > KIX in Y and NRT > MEL in J with CX.

    How did it all go? Did you use the confirmation code for Cathay online check in? AS were a little unsure if I could check in online with the confirmation code or if CX were going to email me a e-ticket number. 2

    That's unfortunate, very happy I got my miles purchased and AS charged me 1/3 of the actual amount :p

    RooFlyer - did you call AS or Points.com?

    Took me 15 days, spoke to AS and one agent said 10 days whilst another said 14 days.

    RooFlyer, it was a standard Westpac Mastercard, Aus issued. Paid for the miles last Friday, came into my account and got my email confirmation on Saturday and I booked the flights immediately. FYI Alaskan booking agents CAN hold seats for 24 hours if your miles aren't immediately transferred...

    Had no issues using my CC, took round 24 hours for the miles to appear in my account but the payment went through almost instantly.

    Fantastic Alaska Airline miles deal on again

    That makes sense, looked like plenty of Award Seating with AS / CX but the booking agent couldn't mind much. Managed to get MEL > HKG > KIX in Y and NRT > HKG > MEL in J for 35,000 Miles + taxes. No idea how when I was initially quoted 105,000 miles for the entire trip in J and was waiting for...

    Found a few flights via BA Exec Club but apparently AS can't see them for some reason. Can manage SYD to HKG but nothing from MEL :(

    Fantastic Alaska Airline miles deal on again

    Strange, i'm not really constraint by time, just need to depart any day within the first week of July and return around the 21st (+2/-2 days). I was very flexible in terms of days and times landing, even with the choice of landing at NRT / HND or KIX and there was apparently no availability with...

    Considering I spoke to a booking agent last Friday who told me there was quite a few award seats on my flights spread across a few days and to find out today there's basically nothing, yes i'm not too happy. Never said it was CX's or QF's fault or even Alaska's fault.

    Fantastic Alaska Airline miles deal on again

    Seems like CX have pulled the majority of award flights to HKG in July after speaking with an Alaskan Air booking agent. Couldn't find a single business or first class ticket for the dates I wanted to HKG or KIX/HND/NRT despite speaking to another booking agent last week who was able to...

    Exactly what i'm trying to book, just need this 10 day period to finish and I can purchase those miles. $2100 USD for return J with CX is awesome.

    Fantastic Alaska Airline miles deal on again

    I gave AS a call earlier this week seeing if they have any CX award flights for July, turns out they do have a decent selection for MEL > HKG although the return leg i'd have to be leaving a few days earlier than originally planned. Waiting for those 10 days to pass by so I can purchase the...
