Well QF had considered BNE-SEA but chose ORD instead. Maybe this may change things, or AA will fly it.
Here’s my huge concern. Alaska has some of the best mileage redemption rates in the industry, though they also take an unconventional approach to award pricing.
They have a different award chart for every partner airline, and you can’t mix airlines on an award. In theory I suspect we’ll see them eventually come up with an award chart for all on all oneworld airlines (where you can mix partners), but I almost certainly think this won’t be good news:
I can’t imagine they’ll continue to allow stopovers on one-way awards
I can’t imagine they’ll maintain the same good prices they currently have
I hope I’m wrong, but I’m quite worried about this…
I only skimmed the release but saw it largely as a re-hash of the oneworld release on 13 February where Alaska's joining was announced.
