I just noticed that you can book Alaska Airline awards on AA.com!
I’ve always liked American Airlines’ online booking tool, because it really is quite easy to use. Even for me!
The online tool has a calendar with color codes indicating availability in both the MileSAAver (regular, but limited seats available) and AAnytime (double priced, but last seat availability) award level as well as the class of service (first, business, economy).
The only downside is that you can only book American Airline awards online. For example, you had to call AA reservations (and pay a
$20 $25 booking fee) if you wanted to book any flight which involved a Oneworld or AA partner airline.
American Airlines is rumored to be updating their online booking tool and the plan is to eventually be able to book all partner awards online.Alaska Air is now bookable on AA.com
Alaska Air is the first American Airline partner airline on which you can book awards on AA.com
Alaska Air not only flies to Alaska, but has a significant presence in Seattle and a few other West Coast cities.
Here’s a link to the Alaska Airlines route map.
You can book not only Alaska Airline flights (for example their Kansas City to Seattle flight), but you can also book mixed flights – i.e flights with both American Airline and Alaska Airlines.
Flights to Alaska can be pretty expensive, so using miles to get there is great! I’m dying to go hiking there, but just don’t know when I’ll have the time off. Perhaps in 2013!
I like how easy American Airlines has made it to book partner awards and can’t wait for them to make more partner airline award bookings available on the web.
