    Trying to put together a family trip to Alaska for this summer...I have lots of MR and UR points...Alaska airlines is not a transfer partner for either...Specifically for booking award travel on Alaska airlines, is there another airline which accepts either MR/UR points and can be used for booking flights on Alaska airlines metal? Anything else I should be considering? I've found flights for 25k RT from SFO-SEA-ANC. Is this the best I can do?

    Both transfer to BA. Note that the BA awards are per segment, so you are looking AF four segments, SFO to SEA, SEA to ANC and return. But it still may price out at a low amount since the flights are not that long SFO to SEA. As always figure out if it will work before transferring.

    Also you may be able to transfer to Cathay who should be an AS partner since you can book on Cathay with AS. Same with Delta from MR points.
