Alaska Airlines offering economy & premium economy award sale to Maldives, Tahiti & more

4

Following Alaska Airlines’ award chart revamp, they announced they’d be running quarterly award sales. Seeing as Q2 has just started, they’ve launched the first award sale.

They’re offering up to 50% off tickets booked with Mileage Plan miles to destinations including the Maldives, Tahiti, Fiji and more. The catch(es)? It’s only valid on economy and premium economy flights and there’s select dates it’s valid for.

Alaska Airlines award sale Q2 2024

The Deal

  • Save up to 50% when redeeming Alaska Airlines miles for flights to the following destinations:
    • Bahamas
    • Fiji
    • Tahiti
    • Zanzibar
    • Bali
    • Maldives
  • Direct link to offer.

Key Terms

  • Global escapes pricing is offered on flights in Economy & Premium Economy class only. Travel has to originate in the US.
  • Promo is valid on bookings April 3, 2024–April 30, 2024 for travel on September 1, 2024–November 30, 2024.
  • Each award is subject to taxes and carrier-imposed fees starting from $5.60 per person, each way. These taxes and fees vary by itinerary and are based on trip origin and destination. The exact amount of taxes and carrier-imposed fees that will apply will appear when searching for a particular itinerary, and can start at $100 for international itineraries with select partners. For itineraries that include one (1) or more partner award segments, a $12.50 (USD) nonrefundable fee will be collected per person, each way.
  • One (1) enroute stopover of up to 14 days is allowed per one-way on eligible international itineraries. On a roundtrip international itinerary two (2) stopovers are permitted with one (1) in each direction of travel.
  • Lap infants are not permitted on international partner awards and will not be accepted for travel. Members will need to book seats at prevailing rates.

Quick Thoughts

There’s some attractive pricing available here, with economy tickets ranging from 15,000-30,000 miles each way to the eligible destinations.

The terms state that travel has to originate in the US, but it doesn’t look like Alaska is enforcing that. For example, if you search for a one-way ticket from Fiji to Los Angeles, you’ll see the exact same 20,000 mile redemption option that you get if you do a search as a round trip originating from the US.

Alaska long ago abandoned its frequent flyers and did the smoke and mirrors burn. Maybe for economy travelers and those who don’t mind flying domestic in the worst conditions then you should go for it. If comfortable is important then you should run away as fast as you can. Remember they are colocated with their highly reputable buddies at Boeing!

This is pitiful. No one who is serious in this game wants to fly economy anything.

Sometimes they make a deal for us common folk who are not serious enough. If my kids weren’t in school we’d be all over this.

Lol are you serious? I have 5M amex points, 2M chase points, and still fly economy whenever I can. There is an argument about what is sufficient for one self, and what one’s priority is for a trip. My bed is way more comfortable than whatever the ME airlines can offer in their grand accommodations. I am interested in the sights, and the people. Plus, traveling with family is expensive. Not everyone’s style is earn and burn. FM would lose the majority of readers if it caters to those groups only.
