Has anyone actually booked an award reservation on Emirates for a date in the future? My girlfriend and I are both 75K and were trying to do an international trip (business class at a minimum). Were finding it impossible to go anywhere. For example, they list flight options to BKK in November on Emirates but when you try to purchase them they say there is no availability. We tried changing the dates and 3-4 times we tried to book these reservations through Alaska via the phone service. I know we have tried to buy these tix online 30-40 times. Most of the time they simply said if you cannot book it, it's not available. One time an Alaska rep actually pointed out how this lack of availability was a problem and there were "working" on it. So my GF and I have decided to go somewhere else, maybe Europe or some place in New Zealand but we cannot find any business class service there at this point using award reservations through Alaska. The biggest problem is that even if you can find the flight you want, you actually have to try and buy it before you realize that it doesn't actually exist. So I ask this question, has anyone successfully booked an award for a future business class reservation using Alaska miles to anywhere outside of US/Mexico/Canada in the past 2-3 months? I am beginning to think it's no longer possible. Although they show lots of options, most are for business flights but when you select them, they display primarily as coach while those that are in business cannot be purchased.
