Back in March Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan introduced the ability to book one-way and mixed partner awards online and for some partners.
Initially you could book one-way awards on American. You could also book one-way at full roundtrip price on Delta, or mix and match American and Delta in a roundtrip.
Now as flagged on Milepoint, it’s possible to book more partners online as well.
The Alaska Airlines website lists the following carriers as searchable:
- Alaska Airlines
- Air France
- Air Pacific
- American Airlines
- British Airways
- Delta Air Lines
- Era Alaska
It’s interesting that they have KLM and not their partner Air France.
I’m especially happy to see though that many awards can be booked one-way (that the Delta restriction is somewhat unique).
And I’m thrilled to have online access to award search (and one-way booking) for Emirates.
Of course that’ll reveal just how sparse first class award space is. Business is reasonably available, but their business class product isn’t all that impressive (especially compared to first class on the A380 with showers..).
