I purchased some Alaska Miles in the hope of using them for a trip in early august (PER-HKG//HKG-PER). However there seems to be no availability to get to HKG in J, only Y.

I have some USDM miles (around 40k or so, but purchasing more isn't so much of a problem), QFF Miles (only 60k), and Alaska Miles (60k).

I actually need to get to Beijing (PEK), but was going to use CX to get to HKG in J and then fly a paid sector to PEK.

It now looks like I will have to fly Y, all the way to PEK. I am a gold QFF.

What would be my best chance of getting a J seat to HKG or PEK (ideal)?

I am now thinking, I might just have to buy a PER-PEK//PEK-PER ticket on CX and hope for upgrade love due to status. I don't believe I can use QFF points to upgrade on a CX ticketed flight?

Cx usually release any excess J seats closer to travel dates so you could always book a Y seat and then keep looking to see if a j seat gets released.

Up to 60 days prior travel Alaska don't charge anything to change flights/move up classes. Within that 60 days of travel it's $125 for each ticketed change.

Have you called up to see if they have T class available being premium economy? None of the searches will show premium economy availability.

Thanks.

Whats the availability from the East Coast like.
Pretty bad around my dates (around 5-7 August) and it would add a fair amount of time going Per-Syd-Hkg-Pek.

Thank you. I will call them tonight in case the QFF website is not accurately displaying CX availability for Alaska Airlines. I supposed if i make a change to the whole itinerary (i.e. cancel it and just buy a revenue ticket) then they would charge $125? Or $125x2 since its a return flight?

The only problem is that the longer I leave it, the higher the revenue flight prices become. I guess that' the price we pay (pardon the pun) !

Avianca will probably have another 2x1 bonus next month, perhaps going via SQ?

That's typically to Asia Miles redemptions I think not partner programs so not much help unfortunately.

Probably better luck getting availabilty via the east coast on QF
