If I understand correctly the flights within 3 days limitation and Asia is inter-Asia flights. When doing a search to the US on the Alaska app plenty of flights show up for today and tomorrow.

We we looked at getting tickets now and trying to upgrade to F if the miles post in time and there would be a $125 reticent fee for each of us even if itís an upgrade. Therefore we decided to take the risk. Does anybody think thereís fallacy in the plan?
