our flexibility for the return is to leave on a Tuesday but will our time away from work until the following Monday so if it turns out we need to take a few extra days thatís fine or even fly to ORD, BOS, WAS would all be fine too and then can get back from those cities. Surely thereís bound to be availability on at least one flight for two within a 5 day window to a variety of cities aye?
I wouldn't be so sure of that and I recently read (I believe on OMAAT) that Alaska has restrictions for booking flights from Asia, as in you can't book flights within a 3 days window due to fraud prevention. If I were you I'd get my flights taken care of in advance. The likelihood that the AS miles for your return flight will be credited in time and that you find at least two seats in First is pretty much zero. YMMV
