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 it definitely highlights what a bargain Business Class can be!
Need A Top-up of Alaska Miles?
It has been awhile 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.
Even though sterling is painfully weak at the moment, you can buy 120,000 Marriott points for $1,000 (£900). When converted to Alaska miles, you would end up with 50,000 miles. That’s more than enough for a one-way flight in Business Class to/from Hong Kong on Cathay Pacific.
