Alaska Reverses Their 72-Hour Advanced Booking Restriction… Sort Of

Alaska Reverses Their 72-Hour Advanced Booking Restriction… Sort Of
Caroline Lupini

In a stunning turn of events, Alaska Airlines has mostly reversed the decision they implemented yesterday to disallow bookings made within 72 hours for flights on Cathay Pacific, Hainan, and Japan Airlines.

Note, however, that the decision was not completely reversed. Bookings made within 72 hours will still not be allowed on these airlines for intra-Asia flights.

This is great news for users of Alaska Airlines miles, as many are likely based in the US and are far more likely to redeem for a flight from the US to Asia than for intra-Asia flights.

Whether this policy change had to do with customer outrage or not, is unknown. Either way, this is a good thing for us.
