With Hong Kong finally reopening to the world, the timing is perfect for Alaska Mileage Plan to implement the ability to book Cathay Pacific awards online.
You can now see Cathay Pacific awards online. I don’t know about you, but for me it definitely highlights what a bargain Business Class can be!
Need A Top-up of Alaska Miles?
It has been a while since I paid attention to Alaska’s direct sales of miles. But I do pay more attention to Marriott Bonvoy offers. Right now, you can get a 50% bonus when buying Marriott points.
You can buy 120,000 Marriott points for $1,000. When converted to Alaska miles, you would end up with 50,000 miles. That’s enough for a one-way flight in Business Class between North America and Asia on Cathay Pacific and ‘surcharges’ should be minimal.
