How do you do it?
- Check availability online (for select airlines only) or by calling the partner desk at 1800 252 7522.
- Purchase the number of miles listed in the award chart. There is no limit on the amount of miles you can purchase as long as it is not more than 56,000 miles in one transaction.
- Purchase the ticket either online or through calling the partner desk.
Korean Airlines First Class is not available using this promotion.
Award travel is limited to specific regions if not originating or ending your journey in North America.
You should not purchase miles for travel on British Airways since they also charge a “fuel surcharge” on top of the existing taxes which can exceed US$500 per person.
Alaska Airlines is a great way to fly Emirates and Korean Airlines in Business / First Class since they don’t partner with many other airlines. If you are considering travel on Cathay Pacific, then this is the cheapest way to travel in Business / First Class if your travel originates or ends in North America.
