    Anyone know if this award redemption requires the flight to originate in HKG? Wondering if you could fly Cathay from say, BKK to HKG and then on to Europe.

    Nope...You can redeem your AS miles on CX for any destination (i.e BKK-HKG-EU should be permitted if it's what CX sells).

    Er...

    Cathay Pacific
    Request your Partner Award reservation on Cathay Pacific by calling Alaska Airlines Reservations
    at 1-800-252-7522 (TTY: Dial 711 for Relay Services) 5:00 a.m. - Midnight (PT), daily
    Between Hong Kong and Europe

    My understanding is BKK-HKG-Europe on CX would incur a second award charge for the additional segment.

    That is what I suspected, but I wonder if it works in practice. Unfortunately, CX is one of two airlines you can't book online so no way to tell without calling.
